Parasoft, a global leader in automated software testing solutions, is expanding its presence in the financial software testing space with its service virtualization solution, which delivers significant risk and cost reduction to financial services organizations by optimizing application testing. This is crucial for businesses such as insurance companies and credit unions that want to deliver high-quality applications to their users and achieve business goals.
To showcase the benefits of service virtualization, Parasoft is sponsoring the QA Financial event in New York on May 24, 2023. The event will feature a panel session, "How to Deliver Software On Time & Under Budget With Service Virtualization," with the following experts who will share software testing strategies to achieve testing and delivery goals using service virtualization.

Implementing service virtualization for financial software testing is especially important in today's competitive landscape where failing to deliver high-quality applications can result in lost business.
Cox Automotive offers a variety of financial services for the automotive industry, including Dealertrack, which handles retail transactions for vehicle financing and contracting.
"Virtualization was the best thing that could happen to us in the way that it enables us to test the right thing at the right time. We already had many automation tools and could have some ability to mimic component behavior, but it wasn't what we needed. We needed our virtualization services fast, because our problem was here and now, right in our lap," said Roya Montazeri.
The Parasoft Continuous Quality Platform supports the end-to-end testing needs of many industries, including financial services, and provides superior mocking of APIs and virtualizing of a broad range of message behaviors. In The Forrester Wave™: Continuous Automation Testing Platforms, Q4 2022 report, Parasoft was named a leader for the creation and execution of API tests integrated with service virtualization.
Forrester Vice President and Principal Analyst Diego Lo Giudice wrote, "Organizations from any market can partner with Parasoft, but technical scientific and high-compliance markets will find the ideal platform for their use cases. Parasoft is already present in these markets and in the large-logo financial technology market."

StorMagic®, solving the world’s edge data problems, today announced continued momentum with manufacturing end users with the addition of two new Germany-based customers. StorMagic SvSAN is a simple, two-node virtual SAN that manages data and its associated applications, to ensure customers’ main objective – productivity.
“Manufacturers require IT systems that deliver built-in redundancy and high availability to ensure continuous operations and, ultimately, productivity to keep their businesses running,” said Bruce Kornfeld, chief marketing and product officer, StorMagic. “SvSAN eliminates single points of failure and downtime to keep factories and plants operational and efficient.”
StorMagic ensures production uptime through high availability, reliability and performance, at a low cost, and is helping two German manufacturers in this endeavor.
WST previously used DataCore SANsymphony to store application data from various databases, file services, and telecommunication systems. Mounting costs and inadequate performance as the volume of data increased led them to review all-flash disk systems at two of their production facilities. SvSAN was selected due to its ability to support all the applications required at these sites with ease of use, minimal hardware requirements and high uptime.
“WST was able to significantly reduce costs and add 100 percent uptime between our two datacenters by moving to StorMagic SvSAN,” said Alexandra Körner, head of IT, WST Präzisionstechnik GmbH. “We’ve also been able to eliminate vendor lock-in thanks to SvSAN’s compatibility with all storage types, hardware and hypervisors. Our future costs have been significantly reduced without sacrificing performance, and budgets are now much more predictable, and easier to plan.”
Witholz GmbH previously used a physical SAN for data processing and management in its two datacenters. The company urgently needed a solution that provided high availability to store application data from its entire IT environment. Witholz found that StorMagic SvSAN was the ideal solution as it was very easy to install and use, and offered the highest performance for the price.
“StorMagic SvSAN is a ‘set and forget’ solution that delivers the best price for performance point in today’s market, and is an ideal fit for every small to medium-sized enterprise," said Matthias Böhler, CEO, Witholz GmbH. “SvSAN allowed us to maximize our budget and achieve 100 percent uptime, which lets us sleep more soundly at night.”
StorMagic is solving the world’s edge data problems. We help organizations store, protect, and use their data at and from the edge. StorMagic’s Forever Data solutions ensure data is always protected and available, no matter the type or location, to provide value anytime, anywhere. StorMagic’s storage, surveillance and security products are flexible, robust, easy to use and cost-effective, without sacrificing enterprise-class features, for organizations with one to thousands of sites.
