Continuous integration and delivery makes early and fast testing mission-critical for a lot of organizations. However, test execution is blocked by application dependencies being unavailable, not having the right amount of test data or otherwise being access-restricted.
Service virtualization is an approach that can be used to create, deploy and exercise virtual assets that your test team has full control over.
Now, by combining service virtualization with container and cloud technology, like Docker and Azure, development teams can create, share, use and destroy test environments on-demand, in seconds. It allows easy integration into continuous integration and delivery pipelines, enabling teams to regain full control over their test environments and the testing process.
