Enabling Parallel Development with Service Virtualization
In the best of all possible worlds, software engineering, testing, and operations teams always work together in perfect synchrony, delivering high-quality products to market on schedule, under budget, and completely error-free. But in this world, that’s never going to happen. The sheer challenge of creating today’s increasingly complex applications, which generally consist of multiple interdependent components, guarantees that every software development life cycle is going to be in for a frequently bumpy ride.
This is where service virtualization can speed things up dramatically. With service virtualization, your DevOps teams can use virtual services instead of production services, enabling frequent and comprehensive testing even when key components are missing from your system architecture. More and more companies are using service virtualization to improve productivity, reduce testing costs, and deploy higher-quality software in a shorter timeframe. In addition to emulating major software applications, third-party services, and even whole backend systems, the virtual assets can also be reliably shared and used by your entire production team, facilitating more efficient parallel development practices. By quickly and easily removing dependency constraints across your organization through virtualization, you can gain a competitive advantage over other companies still waiting in the linear-development limbo.
In this webinar we will look at how teams can enable parallel development through service virtualization by utilizing SmartBear tools such as SwaggerHub and ReadyAPI.
We will cover:
- What is API Service Virtualization
- Why do Service Virtualization
- Real world examples
- Ideal parallel development workflow
- Live demo of how SwaggerHub and ReadyAPI help unlock parallel development
