ITKO LISA Software deployed in Asia Pacific

Australia and New Zealand Banking Group selects ITKO's LISA Testing, Validation and Virtualisation Solutions

DALLAS, TX, October 11, 2010 -- ITKO, Inc., the leading provider of cloud-based development, virtualisation and testing software, announced today that ANZ (ASX: ANZ) would use ITKO's LISATM End-to-End Testing, Validation and Virtualisation solutions for software development.

LISA has been designed to reduce software development and testing cycle times, and lower infrastructure costs, while improving the quality of enterprise applications. ANZ, which offers a wide portfolio of banking and financial products and services to more than six million customers, completed the selection process for ITKO in the third quarter of 2010. ANZ will use LISA Solutions across its Technology division, which is responsible for software development for the bank.

"After an evaluation process that considered our existing technologies and future IT objectives, we ultimately decided that ITKO's complete LISA Suite would reduce risk, cycle times and costs across our development and testing cycles." said ANZ Head of Testing, Environments & Change CoE, Technology Global Solution Delivery, Marcello Martino. "We believe that LISA will allow us to automate more activities, improve our use of existing infrastructure, enhance collaboration, and help us to better meet our customer needs."

The two largest obstacles to building out today's complex composite and cloud based applications are the unavailability of dependent constrained systems and knowing where the process is going to break. ITKO's LISA Test, Virtualize (VSE), Continuous Validation, and Pathfinder solutions are designed to eliminate the dependencies on constrained systems and provide the necessary visibility into architectural changes that hamper communications between development and testing organizations. These capabilities come at a fraction of the cost and effort required of traditional development and testing solutions.

"ANZ's selection of ITKO is very timely," said Shridhar Mittal, ITKO CEO and President. "Like many of our other clients in banking, insurance, Telco and retail, we understand the tremendous pressure companies are under to develop more products in less time at a lower cost. Traditional solutions are unable to achieve these goals. ITKO looks forward to helping ANZ drive significant value from their investment."
