Presentation: "Shift Left with Service Virtualization: Rational Test Workbench & Test Virtualization Server"

Track: Transform Application Delivery for Faster Innovation / Time: Tuesday 10:20 - 11:10 / Location: Frederik

Service virtualization enables your teams to automate the testing of integrations in complex application environments much earlier in the development lifecycle – enabling a “Shift Left” approach. This session will show you how you can model and simulate real system behavior to eliminate system test dependencies and reduce the setup and infrastructure costs of traditional testing environments. IBM’s solution enables you to “virtualize” a large collection of protocols and services that are unsuitable or unavailable for functional, integration and performance testing without reconfiguring your original application environment.
