iTKO’s LISA Virtualize Software to Be Resold by HP

To reduce testing costs and accelerate time-to-market for modern applications

iTKO is announcing that it has signed a definitive agreement for HP to resell iTKO's LISA Virtualize product. With this agreement, customers can combine iTKO's innovative virtualization software product with HP's market share leading Quality Management, Functional and Performance Testing solutions to accelerate testing efforts and reduce costs associated with the delivery of modern applications.

The addition of iTKO's LISA Virtualize product to HP's Quality and Performance Management solutions can help accelerate the application lifecycle by eliminating costly and common system and infrastructure dependencies during application testing. The ability to reduce testing constraints caused by dependent IT resources that are unavailable or inaccessible for testing will have a measurable impact on reducing the cost and risk of modern Quality Assurance.

"Software quality organizations are struggling to keep up with the pace of change and increasingly complex modern applications. This is driving a need for more complete solutions and tools that enable quality efforts to be started earlier," said Thomas Murphy, Research Director, Gartner. "Getting started sooner in quality efforts drives down the cost of defects and improves the ability to deliver on-time."

System dependencies and constraints can be problematic for testing, especially in highly distributed, interdependent environments. Downstream application components, packaged applications, integration infrastructure or data sources may be unavailable, or poor performing and unusable. iTKO's LISA Virtualize eliminates system dependency constraints by "virtualizing", or simulating, the dynamic behavior and performance conditions of downstream system dependencies, so that they react and respond the same as the live system.  With virtualization, functional and performance testing can continue without the delay of acquiring and accessing these frequently unavailable or cost prohibitive dependent resources.

iTKO and HP are initially targeting sales and marketing efforts in North America with other geographies to follow. More information on LISA Virtualize can be found at
