The acquisition of privately-held Grid-Tools will enable CA Technologies to expand its DevOps portfolio with an enhanced focus on quality acceleration. Time consuming, manual testing and data management have prevented enterprises from realizing the true potential of agile development and continuous delivery (CD). Grid-Tools’ solutions allow organizations to significantly accelerate their quality lifecycle by providing greater test coverage, faster test creation and repeatable test execution for software assets, while considerably reducing the time and resources required to bring products to market.
“The global application economy requires our customers to deliver higher quality applications faster than ever before. Legacy testing tools and reliance on manual testing are not suited for the speed and number of changes necessary to achieve continuous delivery,” said Jacob Lamm, Executive Vice-President, Strategy and Corporate Development, CA Technologies. “Adding Grid-Tools’ leading test solutions, development and test teams can accelerate the entire lifecycle while freeing up valuable resources to perform more value added activities.” See more
