Speaker:Andrew Thompson, UK Solution Architect.
Presentation Title:Service Virtualisation and its Benefit to Testing
Abstract:Service Virtualisation is a relatively new ‘buzzword’ that is now gaining some high profile visibility, however it is a technology that has been around for many years.  In essence Service Virtualization is the mocking or stubbing of message APIs for systems that interact with your system under test (SUT) but are not being tested themselves.
Andrew will discuss the benefits that Service Virtualization can bring to testing, why companies should investigate its use and show how easy it is to create and manage virtual assets for your test environments.
BiographyAndrew Thompson has worked for Parasoft for 8 years and is now one of the company’s senior solution architects.  He has helped companies such as Lloyds Bank, Screwfix, P&O Ferries, Lockheed Martin and Fidelity to successfully implement Parasoft’s Service Virtualisation, API Testing and developer level tools.  Andrew has a background as a Java developer, working on applications such as the Nationwide ‘Say Anything’ speech recognition system and NTL’s broadband provisioning system.
Following his development career Andrew now uses his experiences to help companies to reduce the number of defects in their software through the introduction of practises such as static analysis, unit testing, peer code review, automated API testing and Service Virtualisation.
