Unintended Consequences of Change
With many teams and heterogeneous components working together to create today’s distributed application environments, there is no longer a single point-in-time release event. Instead, when a service is added or changed, it has the potential to cause multiple “ripple effects” on other upstream and downstream dependent systems.
To mitigate these risks, companies may employ various governance and policy management tools as part of their development and release processes. However, these approaches lack the ability to validate the actual business outcomes expected by the application, and therefore can’t effectively monitor and identify potentially disruptive changes when they are introduced during the software lifecycle.
Continuous and Event-Based Validation
LISA™ Validate provides “always on” continuous validation capabilities to ensure that business requirements and policies are reliably met in the face of constant change. LISA™ Validate can execute automated regression and performance test suites at various stages across the software lifecycle and notify stakeholders of problems.
CA’s LISA™ Validate provides continuous or event-based validation of functional and performance outcomes to reduce the risks and unintended consequences of change. Using LISA™ Validate, organizations can significantly improve application quality, minimize system downtime, and ensure adherence to Service Level Agreements.
