The goal of release management is to provide an automated release pipeline with lifecycle traceability of assets. The use of release management helps organizations to improve the quality of releases while meeting the demands of more frequent releases, in either pre-production or production, through automation. Organizations using release management experience a reduction in failed deployments, fewer production errors, and increased pre-production deployments.
This Market Snapshot report provides real-world data to help you justify the investment in release management solutions. From our interviews with participants from diverse organization, we discovered how release management solutions are used, why the technology is adopted, as well as its general perceptions, challenges, and benefits.
This report highlights the need to bring virtualization technology to the pre-production portion of the software lifecycle to provide developers and testers with production-like environments on-demand. The five technologies highlighted in the report include:
Additionally this report includes analysis of the following vendors:
From a benefits perspective, lifecycle virtualization technologies deliver a quick and measurable economic impact, just as server virtualization provides for the datacenter. Lifecycle virtualization includes the technology of service virtualization.
Service virtualization enables development and test teams to statefully simulate and model their dependencies of unavailable or limited services and data that cannot be easily virtualized by conventional server or hardware virtualization means. Service virtualization removes the constrains and wait times frequently experienced by development and test teams needing to access components, architectures, databases, mainframes, mobile platforms, and so on.
Service virtualization technology is critical to the success of a vibrant application economy. Organizations using service virtualization experience fewer defects, reduced software cycles, and increased customer satisfaction.
This Market Snapshot report provides real-world data to help organizations justify the investment in service virtualization.
Each and every software defect adds unplanned work—essentially rework—to the schedule. IT must tackle rework head on to determine the most appropriate areas for improvement, investment, and increased quality.
This report provides cost of rework models for Agile and non-Agile projects and recommends ways to test earlier to reduce rework and its cost. Learn how to reduce the cost of rework in development and testing to help prevent catastrophic defects from occurring in production.
From a benefits perspective, lifecycle virtualization technologies deliver a quick and measurable economic impact, just as server virtualization has for the datacenter. Lifecycle virtualization includes the technology of virtual and cloud-based labs.
Virtual and cloud-based labs enable development and QA to access production equivalent environments on-demand, anytime and anywhere.
Virtual and cloud-based lab technology is a must-have for enterprises of all types and sizes to help reduce overall software cycle times and create an optimized environment for development and testing activities.
This Market Snapshot report provides real-world data to help organizations justify the investment in virtual and cloud-based labs.
Is your organization preparing to evaluate, investigate, and adopt a service virtualization solution? Download voke’s 2012 Market Snapshot Report to get the latest insights on how service virtualization is meeting its promise to deliver more predictable, effective, and efficient business outcomes.
Market Snapshot Report highlights:
Infrastructure—a structured platform of networked elements required to deliver services—is proliferating at an explosive rate.
Infrastructure is a critical and strategic component of every business. To protect a company’s brand promise, the infrastructure must be adequately and thoroughly tested. Optimizing testing for infrastructure is a problem that must be addressed and solved now. Organizations must be able to communicate, collaborate, and connect to share test information to deliver quality of service and to deliver high customer satisfaction. The brand is the promise an organization makes to its customers, and the infrastructure delivering real business value must deliver on that brand promise.

On December 12 servicevirtualization.com is hosting an exclusive webinar with voke analyst, Theresa Lanowitz. Theresa and her team at voke recently interviewed hundreds of service virtualization users, managers and decision makers on the types of value they are receiving by modifying their application development practices.
The value users are receiving is driving innovation faster and at the same time increasing quality inside companies. The report summarizes why application development teams face moving targets and how they are overcoming pervasive connection points and code changes to deliver more without increasing resources. The survey results include quantitative numbers on:
