The dilemma facing organizations today is how to be agile, but not be fragile with application delivery.

The paper will explore the benefit of applying Service Virtualization in four challenging scenarios:

2. Developing and testing a call to a Cloud Service
3. Developing and testing a multi-step business process that must access a constrained mainframe application in production
4. Achieving performance testing of a composite application when a service is constrained
