Service-oriented architectures are much different than our traditional siloed
applications. SOAs span multiple tiers and multiple applications, their
development lifecycles are multi-staged and highly iterative, and there are
multiple parties impacted by both internal and perhaps external changes to
Delivering a secure, reliable, compliant SOA, given these complexities,
requires a different approach to quality. In a complex system, quality
measures must permeate every aspect to translate into a quality deliverable.

Service virtualization undeniably benefits the development process, but it
can be both a blessing and a curse for developers. Minimizing the burden that
"shift left" can place on developers is key to achieving maximum acceleration
of delivery cycles.
Service Virtualization's Shift Left Benefits the Development Process
Service virtualization’s potential to “shift left” testing is
relatively well-accepted throughout the industry. With simulated test
environments eliminating constraints that commonly delay or curtail testing
efforts, testing can begin earlier. And, as we all know by... (more)

Unit testing is a cornerstone of successful Development Testing strategies
and should be adopted by any organization seeking to reduce risks and costs
over the application development lifecycle.
As a primary quality gate, unit testing:
Prevents the introduction of defects that would consume valuable resources if
detected later in the development process. Reduces risks associated with
faulty software, which may result in costly litigation, brand erosion, or
even loss of life. Verifies the functionality of the application and serve as
artifacts for compliance traceability.
