PeopleSoft Selects Agitar for Enterprise Developer Testing

New Quality Initiative at CRM Leader Embraces Next-Generation Approach to Software Quality for Java
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 28 — Agitar Software, a leader in developer testing for the enterprise, today announced that PeopleSoft®, the world's second largest enterprise software provider, has selected Agitar for a new enterprise Java software testing initiative.

The initiative will empower PeopleSoft's Java development teams with automated, dynamic tools to help them assure a higher level of software quality at the earliest possible point in the software development lifecycle: during code construction, before the code is delivered for integration and traditional quality assurance.

“PeopleSoft delivers critical software infrastructure to its customers and therefore places a very high premium on software quality. As we are deploying increasing numbers of Java projects, we are investing in unit-testing technology because of its potential to increase control over software quality,” said Petros Dermetzis, Group Vice President & General Manager, Engineering Services at PeopleSoft. “We believe that the unique automation and management visibility provided by Agitar's solution makes it possible for us to rapidly implement unit testing.”

“Agitar's solution is quickly demonstrating substantial savings and return on investment to some of the world's largest and most innovative software development organizations. PeopleSoft is a respected and visionary company that understands that its focus on quality improves customer satisfaction while also reducing development costs,” said Jerry Rudisin, CEO of Agitar. “Our solution fundamentally improves the economics of software development and we're delighted to be working with PeopleSoft on its new initiative.”

About Agitar's Solutions
Agitator™, the core of Agitar's enterprise developer testing solution, intelligently exercises Java code to discover its behavior and presents observations to the developer. Developers can convert Agitator's observations into unit-tests with a single click, without writing any code. This unique process, called “software agitation,” helps developers create thorough sets of reusable unit tests. Agitation lets developers edit and enhance their code with confidence, helping them prevent errors as they write or modify their programs. The Agitar Management Dashboard™ provides unprecedented data, visibility, and control over the developer testing process. The Management Dashboard lets development teams set testing targets based on risk, resource availability, and schedules. It gives in-depth reports on test quality with details by project, package, class, and method.
