AppDev: Create Better Applications Faster
Applications requirements are more demanding, precise and complex than ever, so it’s no surprise that applications development techniques have had to evolve fairly dramatically to ensure both better quality and faster deployment and provisioning.
IT organizations are turning to approaches such as agile development, service virtualization and automated testing in order to improve both quality and speed. Market reports from both IDC and Voke Media both point out the critical nature of service virtualization in helping the application delivery process by reducing risk and costs during the software lifecycle and improving software quality assurance.
You’ll also read about the efforts of financial services leader First Data Corp., which is using service virtualization to transform their business services from traditional brick-and-mortar commerce into a more digital environment that makes consumer banking far more convenient.
