CA Technologies to Acquire BlazeMeter to Drive Speed and Quality of Application Testing Practices

NEW YORK, September 20, 2016 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire BlazeMeter, a leader in open source-based continuous application performance testing. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The transaction is expected to close by year end.

 

The acquisition of privately-held BlazeMeter will enable CA Technologies to extend its DevOps portfolio. BlazeMeter will seamlessly integrate with CA’s continuous delivery solutions to further improve testing efficiency and accelerate the deployment of applications.

 

“BlazeMeter has redefined performance testing with its simplicity, fast-deployment SaaS model, and rapid time-to- value,” said Ayman Sayed, president and chief product officer, CA Technologies. “The acquisition will reinforce our leadership position in agile testing, and our efforts to democratize performance testing as organizations accelerate their DevOps journey to drive speed and quality in the delivery of new software updates and innovations.”

 

As development teams move to agile and continuous delivery practices to improve time-to-market of applications, enterprises are struggling to keep up. Testing speed is the major bottleneck in getting applications released faster. With BlazeMeter’s solution, developers and performance engineers can test earlier and more often in the application lifecycle.

 

“Developers and performance engineers want to consume software that is easy to try, easy to buy and easy to maintain,” said Alon Girmonsky, Founder & CEO, BlazeMeter. “The combination of CA Technologies and BlazeMeter will provide organizations with a cost-effective, modern load testing solution that keeps up with the pace of enterprise change for the new testing community of agile developers.”

 

BlazeMeter’s commercial, self-service continuous application performance testing solution is fully compatible with Apache JMeter™ as well as other open source software tools like Selenium, Gatling and Locust.

 

Founded in 2011, BlazeMeter has offices in Tel Aviv, Israel and Palo Alto, Calif.
