MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 2, 2007 – Agitar Software, the leader in unit testing solutions, today announced that that it has won Red Herring’s 100 Spring, an award given to the top 100 private technology companies based in North America. Red Herring’s annual lists of top private companies are an important part of the company’s tradition of identifying new and innovative technology companies and entrepreneurs. Companies like Google, eBay, and Skype were spotted in their early days by Red Herring editors, and touted as leaders that would change the way we live and work.
“Agitar is honored to be named one of the Red Herring 100 and excited to add this award to our growing list of accolades,” said Jerry Rudisin, chief executive officer at Agitar Software. “Our unique technology has changed the way thousands of Java developers write and test code. Using Agitar, Java developers can quickly and easily begin unit testing to deliver higher-quality products to market faster. Agitar’s innovative technology continues to find increased market traction and praise.”
Agitar’s software, AgitarOne, brings unprecedented power and simplicity to unit testing of Java applications. Unit testing, the practice in which software developers test their code as they write it, helps ensure code works correctly and improves the agility, quality, and costs of application software development.
Red Herring’s editorial staff rigorously evaluated more than 800 private companies through a careful analysis of financial data and subjective criteria, including quality of management, execution of strategy, and dedication to research and development.
"Having received more than 800 submissions, it is clear that we are witnessing a new outburst of creativity," said Joel Dreyfuss, Editor-in-Chief of Red Herring.
