iTKO’s LISA Virtualize Software to Be Resold by HP


iTKO is announcing that it has signed a definitive agreement for HP (NYSE: HPQ) to resell iTKO’s LISA Virtualize product. With this agreement, customers can combine iTKO’s virtualization software product with HP’s market share leading Quality Management, Functional and Performance Testing solutions to accelerate testing efforts and reduce costs associated with the delivery of modern applications.

ebizQ received the following:

The addition of iTKO’s LISA Virtualize product to HP’s Quality and Performance Management solutions can help accelerate the application lifecycle by eliminating costly and common system and infrastructure dependencies during application testing. The ability to reduce testing constraints caused by dependent IT resources that are unavailable or inaccessible for testing will have a measurable impact on reducing the cost and risk of modern Quality Assurance.

“Customers struggle to bring their software projects to market faster while simultaneously lowering business risks and ensuring SLA compliance,” said Shridhar Mittal, iTKO’s CEO. “iTKO’s virtualization capabilities provide key strategic advantages to our customers, including lowering test lab costs by up to 65%, and shortening software release cycles by up to 38%. These benefits are essential in today’s tough economic climate, and we look forward to extending these customer benefits to a broader market with HP.”

“Software quality organizations are struggling to keep up with the pace of change and increasingly complex modern applications. This is driving a need for more complete solutions and tools that enable quality efforts to be started earlier,” said Thomas Murphy, Research Director, Gartner. “Getting started sooner in quality efforts drives down the cost of defects and improves the ability to deliver on-time.”

“Customers can reduce costs and speed up their ability to respond to business needs by modernizing their applications,” said Jonathan Rende, Vice President and General Manager, Business Technology Optimization Applications, Software and Solutions, HP. “By bringing together HP Quality Center and HP Performance Center solutions with iTKO’s LISA Virtualize software, customers can remove delay-causing system dependencies during their testing processes to reduce the time and cost of delivering today's complex applications."

System dependencies and constraints can be problematic for testing, especially in highly distributed, interdependent environments. Downstream application components, packaged applications, integration infrastructure or data sources may be unavailable, or poor performing and unusable. iTKO’s LISA Virtualize eliminates system dependency constraints by “virtualizing”, or simulating, the dynamic behavior and performance conditions of downstream system dependencies, so that they react and respond the same as the live system. With virtualization, functional and performance testing can continue without the delay of acquiring and accessing these frequently unavailable or cost prohibitive dependent resources. iTKO and HP are initially targeting sales and marketing efforts in North America with other geographies to follow.
