Service Virtualization: Reality Is Overrated



In Service Virtualization: Reality is Overrated authors John Michelsen and Jason English explore the new IT practice and technology of Service Virtualization (SV), which is industrializing the process of simulating everything in our software development and test environments. They argue that fake systems are even better than the real thing for most of the design and development lifecycle and show how SV is already making a huge impact at some of the world’s biggest companies.

Service Virtualization: Reality is Overrated is the first book to present this powerful new method for simulating the behavior, data and responsiveness of specific components in complex applications. By faking out dependency constraints, SV can deliver dramatic improvements in speed, cost, performance and agility to the development of enterprise application software.
