Banking, Insurance and Financial Market applications and processes have increasingly complex testing needs that are hindering time to market and increasing costs. Recent results show that financial institutions around the world are addressing this challenge in order to excel in rapidly changing financial environments. Join this webcast to hear how.
Seizing new revenue opportunities and driving down costs demands rapid, high quality application delivery. More agile development with faster and more frequent testing cycles is required. A testing solution to help meet these demands must offer a clear ROI and be well suited to the particular needs of the financial institution IT environment. Here, applications are commonly built on interconnected systems that exchange information over a wide variety of client and server platforms – ranging from mainframes to mobile devices.
Financial institutions have found that traditional testing approaches are not sufficient for the critical front end and back end functional and performance testing that is required. A key challenge is readily available end-to-end test configurations. Coordination and timing problems can lead to late stage defects or delay time to market.
Test Virtualization solves that problem that by creating a virtual environment to "simulate" individual or total back end components. This simulation can be used in any test environment and is very effective in system integration testing and for supporting agile development.

Test Automation with test virtualization helps reduce cost and risk, and can speed the delivery of integrated applications.
With this solution approach, institutions have demonstrated that:
- Test lab infrastructure costs can be reduced by up to 90%
- Labor involved in setting up test environments can be reduced by 80%+
- Test environments can be configured in minutes versus weeks
- Developers have the means to test software earlier
Join this webcast and Q&A to learn about the IBM® Rational® test automation solutions that Banking, Insurance and Financial Market companies are adopting. Take this step towards more rapid, agile, cost effective testing to seize new opportunities and meet the changing needs in the financial services industry.
