Agile delivery teams are not going to win gold at the track meet this year in London. You won't see synchronized software development and testing teams swimming together in perfect time. Application performance experts won't be sticking the dismount after a high-speed vault. But we do like to think that in some small way, our advances in Service Virtualization may help our customers at DirecTV bring those performances into our living rooms this summer.
Check out this latest video interview with Mike Benson, DirecTV's CIO on how Service Virtualization with CA LISA solutions enabled their company to make virtual dev and test environments available in minutes, not days.
Service Virtualization (SV), whether accessed from a developer's laptop, or shared by distributed teams using private Cloud labs, equates to a huge boost in productivity and performance for this entertainment firm's IT development and integration projects.
When the old way of manually configuring test infrastructure and coding mocks is dispensed with, their lifecycle shrinks, and product can be delivered to market faster, with better quality and a competitive price for customers.
Just like the world's premier athletic competition this summer, the stakes for enterprises to continuously innovate and deliver flawlessly have never been higher. Defining moments create the impetus for new and ever-increasing customer expectations, and that equates to big differentiators in a competitive market. By simulating and eliminating constraints from the SDLC, DirecTV has positioned their application development and performance strategy to win.
