ITKO Becomes BEA Partner, To Demonstrate LISA Solutions at BEA World 2005
Dallas, TX - September 15, 2005: ITKO, Inc., creators of LISA composite application testing software, announce a partnership with leading application platform provider BEA Systems, producer of the WebLogic Server platform and many other related products.
The two enterprise software companies are scheduled to participate in joint marketing and product integration activities, delivering an end-to-end SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture) development platform, including testing and deployment services.
"Since LISA supports both common application standards and BEA-specific settings, it is an excellent testing solution for any enterprise considering migration to the BEA platform, or upgrading to newer versions of WebLogic," said ITKO CEO Shridhar Mittal. "With this solution, customers can speed up the time to market and quality of their solutions in a single environment."
Like BEA's WebLogic, LISA was built from the ground up using Java technology and industry standards to help support SOA environments that contain multiple distributed components wrapped into a composite application. While BEA provides the platform and services development technologies, ITKO provides the automated testing that is designed to help customers deliver business software with confidence.
ITKO will also be demonstrating its LISA 2.7 Composite Application Testing software running on BEA WebLogic at the upcoming BEAworld 2005 event, September 25-27, in Santa Clara, CA.
ITKO Inc., delivers solutions that increase software quality while reducing business risk. The Dallas-based company's software ensures that every layer of business software, including Web sites, web services, databases, middleware and Java applications continually perform and meet requirements. ITKO's LISA 3 Complete SOA Testing Platform automates functional, regression and load test creation and execution, requiring no coding to deeply test Web sites and back-end systems. In addition, ITKO's easy-to-use tools can be leveraged by the business team, development team and quality assurance team, enabling the entire organization to "own" quality. Founded as an enterprise software development group in 1999, the privately held company serves a variety of clients that need to ensure software quality at high transaction volume, including Sun Microsystems, EMC, AMD, Capgemini and TIBCO Software.
