Traditional hardware and OS virtualization technology reduce software development/testing infrastructure costs and increase access to constrained systems. Yet, it's not always feasible to leverage hardware or OS virtualization for many large systems such as mainframes and ERPs. More pointedly, configuring and maintaining the environment and data needed to support development and test efforts still requires considerable time and resources. As a result, keeping a complex staged environment in synch with today's constantly-evolving Agile projects is a time-consuming, never-ending task. Complementing traditional virtualization, Application-Behavior Virtualization (ABV) provides a new way for developers and testers to exercise their applications in incomplete, constantly evolving, and/or difficult-to-access environments. Rather than virtualizing entire applications and/... (more)

[Infographic] API Integrity: How Buggy Are Today's APIs?

With the advent of the API economy, the integrity of the APIs you produce and consume is now more important than ever. As applications grow increasingly interdependent, the security, functionality, and performance of the composite “mashup” is only as strong as its weakest link. The success of an end-to-end transaction depends upon all the parts working flawlessly—all the time. To better understand the scope and impact of API issues, Parasoft, leading provider of API Testing solutions, recently conducted study on API Integrity. The following infographic highlights some interestin... (more)

Accelerate the SDLC with Service Virtualization

No matter what industry you're in, software is increasingly becoming the interface to your business. Organizations that are able to increase the speed and quality of innovative software releases will capitalize on differentiable competitive advantages; those that cannot will languish behind competitors. Not surprisingly, many enterprises have begun flirting with the idea of accelerating the SDLC to drive innovation through software. However, it's critical to realize that there's an optimal balance between speed and quality with software delivery-as with all engineered products. We... (more)

Continuous Delivery…of Faulty Software? By @Parasoft | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

With the need for speed driving continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous release, organizations across industries are experiencing a rising rate of regressions, integration errors, and other defects. Accelerated delivery is great—unless you end up placing the business at risk because your testing efforts just can't keep pace. Watch the on-demand How to Avoid Continuously Delivering Faulty Software webinar (co-hosted by Perforce and Parasoft) to explore best practices for reducing the risks associated with Continuous Delivery. The webinar covers: The top 4 best... (more)

How to Ease API Testing Constraints

Ensuring API integrity is difficult in today's complex application cloud, on-premises and hybrid environment scenarios. In this interview with TechTarget, Parasoft solution architect manager Spencer Debrosse shares his experiences about the top API testing issues that organizations encounter and how automation and a DevOps team approach can address them. The following is an excerpt from that interview... What makes testing APIs challenging? When you're building an application, you're not just using your own APIs or your own internal applications. Instead, you have to rely on a wide... (more)
