Agitar Only Software Quality and Testing Vendor Recognized; Award Identifies 100 "Most Promising" Companies Driving the Future of Technology
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 12, 2007 – Agitar Software, the leader in unit testing solutions, today announced that Red Herring named Agitar Software a Finalist for the Red Herring 100 Award, a selection of the 100 private companies based in North America that play a leading role in innovation and technology.
The Red Herring editorial board diligently surveyed the entrepreneurial scene throughout the North American region and identified the top 200 out of more than 800 closely evaluated companies that are leading the next wave of innovation.
“We can see the exciting evolution of the technology sector reflected in the quality and variety of exceptional companies that we had to choose from in putting our list together," said Joel Dreyfuss, Editor-in-Chief of Red Herring. "It was tough to choose just 200 finalists from such a large list of excellent contenders, and we are very happy with the qualities of the companies we selected as Finalists."
Agitar’s software, AgitarOne, brings unprecedented power and simplicity to Java unit testing, the practice in which software developers create tests for their code as they write it. Unit testing helps ensure code works correctly and improves the agility, quality and costs of application software development.
“Unit testing is a priority in 2007 for software teams worldwide that want to be agile and bring products to market in the shortest time with the highest quality,” said Jerry Rudisin, CEO of Agitar Software. “AgitarOne is helping thousands of developers get started easily and quickly with unit testing, transforming the quality, economics, and speed of delivering Java applications. We’re honored that Red Herring recognizes Agitar as a company driving the future of innovation.” The winning 100 companies will be announced at the Red Herring Spring event. The CEOs of the winners will present their innovative ideas and technologies to an audience of leading entrepreneurs, financiers and corporate strategists at the event in Monterey, Calif., on May 1-3, 2007, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
