Large-scale systems have been traditionally difficult to manage in a test lab. Staged instances, when available, are difficult and time consuming to configure. Moreover, the cost to stage a large system like a mainframe or SAP is significant. Parasoft's Service Virtualization solution creates a simulated test environment by emulating the transactions associated with these large systems. By simulating and configuring at the message layer, organizations are able to test earlier, faster and more completely.

"Now that Service Virtualization as a technology has begun to hit its stride, organizations are looking to expand Service Virtualization deployments within increasingly complex environments," explained Wayne Ariola, Parasoft Chief Strategy Officer. "Our Service Virtualization solution has already been recognized as the industry leader in 'Platform and Protocol Support,' making it the optimal choice for complex environments like mainframes, SAP, ESBs and high-throughput message brokers. This release will assist customers to more rapidly construct and manage simulated assets--delivering more complete access to complex environments."

Key capabilities introduced in the new release include:

    --  Simplified Creation of SQL-Based Virtual Assets: A redesigned interface
        simplifies the creation of SQL-based virtual assets--reducing the time
        and effort involved in defining complex SQL responses. This is
        especially critical for organizations leveraging complex database or
        mainframe transactions.
    --  Optimized Performance: The virtual asset creation process has been
        significantly optimized to make it faster and easier for organizations
        working with large and complex message sets.
    --  Redesigned Test Lab Management Interface: The redesigned interface
        further enhances the speed and ease with which users can understand
        complex test environments and provision the exact test environment
        needed to complete a specific task
    --  Extended Connectivity and Extensibility:  As part of Parasoft's
        commitment to being the industry's open,  integrated Service
        Virtualization solution, we continued to expand our API to enable more
        seamless integration into your SDLC--for example, your organization's
        preferred tools for DevOps, Continuous Integration, ALM, etc.
