Agitar Wins InfoWorld's Annual Technology Award For Second Consecutive Year
Agitator Technology Named Best Application Test Tool
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 9, 2006—Agitar Software, the leader in enterprise developer testing, today announced that Agitator and Agitator Management Dashboard, which help developers find and eliminate defects as they write code, have won InfoWorld’s Technology of the Year Award for the second year in a row.
"InfoWorld's annual Technology of the Year Awards identify significant technologies of the past year that promise to make the greatest impact on enterprise IT strategies," said Doug Dineley, executive editor of the InfoWorld Test Center. "Agitator offers a great way to create unit tests and exercise code."
Agitar’s Agitator, which also garnered InfoWorld’s Technology of the Year Award in 2005, eliminates most of the manual work required for unit testing. By testing code as it’s written, development teams create much better software, instead of finding and fixing bugs at the end of the development process. The latest release includes innovative Domain Experts, a first-of-its-kind technology that substantially improves unit test results in specific application environments, such as J2EE and Struts. More than 100 customers are already using Agitar to save money, increase software quality and deliver products to market faster, including Abebooks, Cisco, Fujitsu, Honeywell, NTT Data, Wachovia, and webMethods.
"Domain Experts make Agitator the smartest unit testing solution available," said Jerry Rudisin, CEO of Agitar. "If your organization is doing serious Java work, Agitator is the best tool for automating developer testing – it works. Our customers experience, on average, a two to six times improvement in the amount of code written per developer per day. Our customers also enjoy a 90 to 95 percent reduction in the number of bugs that survive to QA. We’re honored to be recognized again by InfoWorld."
Agitar provides the world’s leading software for developer testing, which has earned the company and its products best technology awards from leading business, technology, and developer publications, including the Wall Street Journal, JavaOne, SD Times, and Software Development magazine, among others.
