Australian government agency accelerates software delivery with IBM service virtualization


This case study of a large enterprise computer hardware company is based on a February 2014 survey of Service Virtualization and Automated Integration Testing customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“IBM service virtualization has made it possible to do a level of testing that was ‘too hard’ with their home grown systems.


Australian government agency faced the following challenges:

  • Insufficient or unavailable test environments
  • Shortage of time available to test effectively

Use Case

Implemented IBM service virtualization and test automation to replace their manual testing practices and home grown testing tools.

  • Rational Test Workbench
  • Rational Performance Tester
  • Rational Test Virtualization Server
  • Rational Quality Manager


Chose IBM over Computer Associates / ITKO to address their service virtualization and automated integration testing needs.

Achieved the following benefits:

  • Reduced cost of testing: 10-25%
  • Accelerated project delivery: 10-25%
  • Improved test environment set-up: 10-25%
