We had another great webinar on July 22, 2014; recording available here. A lot of fun sharing some solid information along with InformationWeek on this very relevant topic of 'How to test without production access."  I start by sharing a bit on COPQ (Cost of Poor Quality) and transition into helping you understand the challenges and review the four legs of the table along with references from major analysts in the market on ROI and results . I would like to encourage you to join me as we cover 'How to Test without Production Access' in four (4) easy to understand ways, including:

1.  User virtualization
2.  Service virtualization
3.  Network virtualization
4.  Data virtualization


You know that you cannot risk going into production without testing in an actual production environment, but you do not have access to production. In this webinar, you will learn why User Virtualization, (UV), Service Virtualization (SV), Network Virtualization (NV) and Data Virtualization (DV) have been so important to your peers and competitors in dealing with this issue through references, best practices, compelling ROI and Break Even Calculations.


Attend this webinar to learn how to:

1.  Make your prior to production environments like production;
2.  Ensure quality of feature function to production in the shortest time possible;
3.  Deliver high performance and resilient apps into production.
