Parasoft Corporation today announced that the Forrester Wave™: Service Virtualization and Testing Solutions, Q1 2014* cited Parasoft Virtualize as “a solid choice for customers that prefer broad capabilities, ease of use, and quick startup.” Parasoft was also noted as supporting “continuous testing during the SDLC and a clear separation of roles between testers who design, develop, and consume virtual assets and those who manage environments.” The report also mentions Parasoft’s marketplace, stating that it was developed for “sharing with clients and partners to help enrich the existing catalog of reusable virtualized assets, new protocols, and message formats.”
Earlier, the report stated: “Besides its rich productivity tools, Parasoft has a mature, extensive platform and protocol offering as well as rich support for third-party tools.”
Forrester evaluated multiple service virtualization and testing (SVT) offerings from different vendors against 15 pre-defined criteria. Forrester’s report provides analysis to application development and testing professionals to help them select the right SVT solution.
To qualify for inclusion in the report, vendors had to meet the following conditions set by Forrester:
- Features to develop stubs to simulate real APIs and service behavior for testing.
- Market presence, strong growth momentum, and referenceable customers.
- A product that was generally available on September 16, 2013.
“I believe that Forrester has been a long-time advocate of the importance of continuous testing, especially as organizations strive to accelerate the SDLC,” remarked Wayne Ariola, Parasoft Chief Strategy Officer. “We feel that Forrester recognizes that Parasoft's marriage of service virtualization and continuous testing is an imperative for automation. It's becoming increasingly clear that you can't 'continuously deliver' or 'continuously release' without both service virtualization and continuous testing.”
