Evolving Life-Cycle Strategies for App Performance: Augmenting Quality with Network and Service Virtualization

This IDC Insight lays out core drivers for a quality life-cycle approach that brings in both network virtualization and service virtualization. Modern software development demands an evolutionary strategy that moves beyond earlier, fractured tactics. Combining quality, network, and service virtualization capabilities has the potential for faster release schedules and faster time to market, which in turn can increase competitive advantage, by helping grow the customer and revenue base for businesses due to improved transaction volumes and innovation. Additional potential benefits include cost savings because of lack of the need for physical infrastructure both for testing applications and for network analytics by leveraging service and network virtualization. This Insight examines the impetus for and benefits of software quality strategies combined with network and service virtualization.
