S13-205: Achieving Software Quality in an “Agile-ish” Environment

Track: Agile Testing

Rapid iterative changes to critical infrastructure systems are endemic in “Agile-ish” environments—and it’s well documented that such rapid changes negatively impact software quality. Incomplete and evolving systems limit the scope of testing, and the challenge of accessing a realistic test environment typically delays testing until late in each iteration.

How do you get to done in spite of these obstacles? Service Virtualization provides a simulated test environment for Dev/QA to access anytime, anywhere.

Join this presentation to learn how a simulated test environment can help you:

  • Start testing even when dependent systems are still evolving or not yet implemented
  • Reduce the risk associated with unknown defects in production
  • Eliminate errors early
  • Verify functionality & performance to ensure a good user experience
