Improving App Performance with Isolated Component Testing

Remove the stress of testing by testing component-level performance SLAs in development and using virtual services to isolate dependencies. Today’s composite applications can have hundreds of failure points – memory leaks, socket exceptions, open connections – all compounded when third-party services and APIs are thrown into the mix. Not to mention the added complexity of […]

Insanity: Building software like we always have

  Albert Einstein had a lot of bright ideas, but his definition of insanity — “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” — has a particular relevance when it comes to software. Since the dawn of computer programming, code has mostly been developed in the same old, expensive, flawed way: build, […]

How Service Virtualization can solve your Test Data Management problems

As  software becomes more complex and distributed, and handles more customers and transactions over time, it is also generating an exponential increase each year in resulting data. Some systems of record have become so large and unwieldy (petabytes or zettabytes even), that they can barely even be managed. You have dozens of data sources in […]

Glitchy airbags point toward a growing problem for all companies

There’s another big problem for automotive airbags, and this time it’s an issue that points to mounting trouble for car makers: systems that have been mostly mechanical for more than a century are increasingly run by problem-prone computer software. Last year, of course, we learned that up to 100 million airbags made by Japan’s Takata Corp. were […]
