SOA and Web Services Testing

Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) enables increased business agility, improved business workflows, extensible architecture, enhanced reuse, and a longer life span of applications. However, companies cannot realize the benefits of SOA due to several challenges.

Business Challenges
Traditional test validation approaches and tools are often incapable of providing high test coverage, consistency, repeatability, and time-to-market.
  • Multiple interaction points and system vulnerabilities in widely exposed services, and sub-standard performance of applications using shared services
  • High cost due to frequent changes in services leading to repetitive and often redundant validation efforts
  • Diverse expectations of stakeholders
  • Difficulty in isolating defects across architecture layers

Our Solutions
Providence's SOA Testing services help companies minimize risks, optimize costs and increase agility of their SOA implementations. We combine an early lifecycle approach to functional validation across multiple layers of the systems architecture with a comprehensive non-functional testing approach.
Our established processes enable clients to successfully validate their SOA transformation programs, middleware implementations, legacy modernization initiatives and other technology and business initiatives. Significantly, our approach allows companies to achieve business agility and acquire the ability to deploy products rapidly.

Highlights of our SOA Testing Services:

  • Modular gray box testing approach combines the best of component level, system integration and end-to-end testing techniques and tools
  • Focused on security testing, performance testing and interoperability testing
  • Business participation, continuous validation and milestones of success
  • Test automation at all layers of SOA using specialized tools for Web services and middleware
  • Robust testing strategies and framework enable reuse of test components across the testing lifecycle
  • Comprehensive risk-based test strategy addresses potential conflict scenarios
  • Robust test data management practices
  • Comprehensive management plan and governance function manage the expectations of participating teams

Value For Clients
Business benefits to the clients include:

  • Identification and resolution of functional defects, performance bottlenecks and vulnerabilities early in the test lifecycle
  • Identification and rectification of majority of defects before the integration phase
  • Increased confidence in SOA-enabled business transformation
  • Significantly reduced test effort and cost of quality
  • Minimal dependencies between teams
  • Ensured prompt rectification of defects
  • Reduced time-to-market
