MindTree Consulting Standardizes On Agitar Software As Unit Testing Technology For Java Development Projects

MindTree Will Leverage Agitar's Technology to Help Customers Improve Agility, Quality, and Costs

Bangalore, India May 7th, 2007 - Agitar Software, a leader in enterprise unit testing, and MindTree Consulting, an international IT and R&D Services Company focused on providing high quality business-enabling solutions to customers, today announced that MindTree Consulting will standardize on Agitar technology for all its Java development projects in India.

MindTree Consulting will employ Agitar technology as a key enabler for bolstering developer productivity, achieving better time-to-market and improving software quality.

"MindTree 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 like unit testing," said Vishweshwar Hegde, Vice President and head of Quality at MindTree Consulting.

"Agitar's unique technology makes unit testing a fast, highly effective process for Java developers," Hegde added. "And we're particularly excited by AgitarOne's powerful JUnit generation capabilities. Most of our clients have large business-critical Java applications, ranging from green-field applications to large legacy code bases - and 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 AgitarOne."

Agitar's breakthrough automation accelerates developer unit testing, an approach where development teams test their software code as they write it. 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.

"MindTree Consulting has built its reputation with a commitment to quality that aims to continuously satisfy clients beyond their expectations," said Vishnu Raned, Head of India Operations for Agitar Software. "I am delighted that MindTree Consulting will leverage Agitar's solution to achieve these business goals."
