iTKO releases new version of LISA product suite

Includes test data management capabilities to capture realistic data scenarios from live traffic

By CBR Staff Writer

iTKO, a provider of virtualisation and validation offerings for cloud-based applications, has released a new version of LISA product suite, which it claims to include new capabilities to virtualise a greater range of IT assets for the elimination of system dependency constraints during the development of enterprise and cloud-based applications.

According to iTKO, the version 5.0 captures and models inaccessible or unavailable IT resources into virtual service environments. It includes improvements such as visual modeling user interface and self-healing virtual models that can automatically update themselves to reflect new behaviour or performance from the production system.

In addition, the new version also includes advanced test data management capabilities to capture realistic data scenarios from live traffic and automatically de-sensitise and adjust relevant test data with time and situational awareness. A new LISA Virtualise Personal Edition is offered to enable individuals to access their own customised virtual service environment without online or network access, the company said.

The LISA’s Pathfinder provides transparency to trace errors to their source across architectures spanning multiple application tiers and heterogeneous technologies. The coverage includes the new UI/presentation layer technologies that support rich internet applications such as Java Swing, Flash, Ajax, Flex and ActiveX, as well as the underlying middle tiers and backend systems, the company said.

Using Pathfinder Pro enables a QA tester to capture a defect along with developer context including all system transactions, performance statistics, logs and architectural details. Defect resolution capabilities include comprehensive, point-and-click drill down comparisons, and defect information that can be converted into regression tests or used for other purposes, iTKO said.

John Michelsen, chief scientist at iTKO, said: “Enterprise customers have always been able to rapidly deploy virtual service environments using LISA. Now with LISA 5.0, they’ll be able to virtualise practically any IT asset within their enterprise or across their external partner ecosystem.

“In addition to removing accessibility and availability constraints on dependent systems, they’ll also be able to immediately leverage virtual data scenarios to solve pressing test data management challenges.”
