March 27, 2008 - Oracle 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 e-TEST suite is a set of Web application testing solutions that help customers deploy higher quality applications. 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."


The transaction is subject to certain closing conditions, and Empirix's Web application testing business continues to be part of Empirix until the deal closes.
