Oracle has announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire the e-TEST suite products from Empirix, a provider of Voice and Web application testing and monitoring solutions. Empirix’s test tools is a set of Web application testing solutions that help customers deploy higher quality applications more efficiently and at lower cost. The e-TEST suite products will be incorporated into Oracle Enterprise Manager and Oracle Real Application Testing, and the combination is expected to result in a comprehensive solution for testing packaged and custom-built applications.

“Application testing is becoming increasingly important as customers seek to deploy applications faster, at a lower cost and with higher quality of service,” said Leng Leng Tan, Oracle Vice President, Applications and Systems Management. “Customers are looking for automated application testing solutions that help prevent costly application performance problems, avoid unplanned outages of business-critical applications, and automate the manual steps involved in application testing. We expect that the combination of Empirix’s e-TEST suite and Oracle Enterprise Manager will create a best-of-breed systems management portfolio spanning the full application life cycle, from development and testing to production deployment and management.”

“Empirix and Oracle have a shared commitment to provide industry-leading, standards-based offerings focusing on Web and SOA application development,” said Larry Timm, VP and GM of Empirix’s Web Business Unit. “We are excited that Oracle is adding the e-TEST suite to the Oracle Enterprise Manager portfolio and believe that customers and partners will benefit from being better able to deploy performance-optimised applications.”
