iTKO Releases LISA 4.6 Product Suite with Third Generation Service Virtualization Capabilities, Enhanced UI Testing, and Expanded Policy Validation and Governance Support
LISA 4.6 Suite Proven at Key Enterprise Customers and Reviewed by Analyst Firm Butler Group
- Third-generation service virtualization for rapid simulation of complete test environments. LISA enables automated modeling and simulation of inaccessible or unavailable IT resources into virtual test environments for development and testing purposes, providing realistic behaviors and stateful transactions just as a production environment would. LISA virtualization can be applied to nearly any technology environment including mainframes and remote third party systems. Version 4.6 improvements enable faster and more accurate creation of virtual test environments, and the ability to virtualize an even broader array of IT resources.
- Enhanced UI testing support for new RIA/Web 2.0 application delivery models. LISA accelerates the process of testing and ensuring quality for today’s Rich Internet-based Applications, including detailed requirements validation for Java Swing, Flash, AJAX, Flex and ActiveX. New browser-native testing controls enable LISA testers to verify that these applications function as expected in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and other delivery methods.
- Increased governance and policy validation support for distributed composite applications, including SOA, BPM, Cloud and others. LISA supports the enforcement and verification of policies and Service Level Agreements (SLA) by validating business outcomes and results using event-based triggers such as service publishing, or validating continuously while in production. LISA validation tests can be launched natively within governance infrastructures and registry/repositories such as HP Systinet, Software AG’s Centrasite, SOA Software Workbench, TIBCO ActiveMatrix, and SAP NetWeaver.
