Agitar Software Announces Sabre Travel Network to Use Its Unit Testing Technology
Sabre Travel Network Will Leverage Agitar’s Unit Testing Solution to Help Customers Improve Agility, Quality, and Costs
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., September 5, 2007 - Agitar Software, the leader in enterprise unit testing, today announced that Sabre Travel Network will standardize on Agitar technology for its Java development Sabre Travel Network projects worldwide. As a world leader in the travel marketplace, Sabre Holdings merchandises and retails travel products including distribution and technology solutions for the travel industry.
Sabre will employ Agitar technology in its basket of developer productivity tools to continue its program to help bolster developer productivity, achieve better time-to-market, and improve software quality. Agitar’s automation technology accelerates developer unit testing, an approach where development teams test their software code as they write it.
"Sabre sets itself apart by combining extreme agility in our development processes with unmatched quality. We’re able to do this because we consistently leverage software best practices such as unit testing," said Sara Garrison, Senior Vice President at Sabre Holdings.
"Agitar’s unique technology makes unit testing a fast, highly effective process for Java developers," Garrison added. "And we’re particularly excited by AgitarOne’s powerful JUnit generation capabilities. In our business, we deal with business-critical Java applications, ranging from green-field applications to large legacy code bases. With AgitarOne, we can generate a thorough safety net of JUnit tests, which helps us build, extend, and enhance Java code with even greater reliability and speed than before. We see a significant positive impact on developer testing productivity and effectiveness through the use of Agitar’s solutions."
Agitar’s flagship product, AgitarOne, helps developers discover and eliminate defects early in the software lifecycle, enables better software design, and simplifies integration and QA, increasing the predictability of software development and lowering costs.
"Building quality into software by unit testing early in the development process, rather than testing bugs out later in the cycle, helps development organizations bring applications to market faster and significantly enhances developer productivity," said Jerry Rudisin, CEO of Agitar Software. "Sabre Holdings has built its reputation with a commitment to quality that aims to continuously exceed client expectations. I am delighted that Sabre will use Agitar's software to achieve a competitive advantage based on quality and agility."
