While SOA promises the business value of agility and reuse to SAP customers, this practice also adds IT risk, due to the complexity of maintaining application integrity across workflows that span multiple technologies. How can companies achieve functional and performance testing strategies that are complete enough to cover SOA? Replicating full test landscapes for development and testing activities, with all the components and data needed to validate a rich business process, can be expensive and difficult to create and maintain. Services might not be fully developed, or they might be owned by external providers and accessed over the Internet. iTKO’s LISA solution allows teams to test incomplete component landscapes or even just individual components by simulating the full environment around them. In SAP’s Co-Innovation Lab, iTKO and SAP engaged in joint testing against LISA’s Virtual Services as a service provider as well as a service consumer in an SAP landscape (Figure). With this blog I’d like to point you to our new white paper which reports details on how the team applied both approaches to achieve successful SOA quality coverage with less manual effort.
