Service Virtualization in Enterprise Application Development – John Michelsen, Founder & Chief Architect, iTKO
Many large organizations are in the process of adopting hardware virtualization technology for the development of their dynamic enterprise applications. However, hardware virtualization is not appropriate or feasible in all circumstances, and by focusing solely on hardware virtualization we could be leaving opportunities to save significant time and money on the table.
This white paper introduces the practice of Service Virtualization as a key complement to hardware virtualization to facilitate the efficient development and testing of dynamic enterprise applications. Service virtualization involves the imaging of software service behavior and the modeling of a virtual service to stand in for the actual service during development and testing. Organizations that want to realize the full benefits of a virtualization strategy should evaluate both the hardware and software virtualization approaches described in this whitepaper.
