Where does Service Virtualization help?
Service virtualization can help you keep control of your ERP project by shortening the timeline and establishing a consistent pace of testing. Here are two practical cases to show you how:
Case 1: One workstream is delaying the whole project
Here is something you recognize. Everything is going well with most of your workstreams, but one of them just won’t move forward. Integration testing has come to a halt, your delivery team is getting restless, and the project is losing its mojo.
Service virtualization can step in and provide a missing interface or an realistic simulation. This way, you can get back to your tasks and you can start end-to-end testing earlier. This will not only save you time and money, but it also keeps your team focused on the right thing; delivering value.
Case 2: Troublesome integration testing with third party providers
Working with a third party can bring challenges like limited visibility, difficult access to resources and numerous others. By virtualizing third party systems, you can obtain more control over your timelines and avoid budget overruns. Besides that it takes the pressure off your integration partner. Lastly it allows you to test your end of the integration, without relying completely on the provider.
