CA Technologies has announced it has acquired Grid Tools Ltd. ("Grid-Tools"), a leading provider of enterprise test data management, automated test design and optimization software solutions. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquisition of privately-held Grid-Tools will enable CA Technologies to expand its DevOps portfolio with an enhanced focus on quality acceleration. Time consuming, manual testing and data management have prevented enterprises from realizing the true potential of agile development and continuous delivery (CD). Grid-Tools' solutions allow organizations to significantly accelerate their quality lifecycle by providing greater test coverage, faster test creation and repeatable test execution for software assets, while considerably reducing the time and resources required to bring products to market.

"The global application economy requires our customers to deliver higher quality applications faster than ever before. Legacy testing tools and reliance on manual testing are not suited for the speed and number of changes necessary to achieve continuous delivery," said Jacob Lamm, executive vice president, Strategy and Corporate Development, CA Technologies. "Adding Grid-Tools' leading test solutions, development and test teams can accelerate the entire lifecycle while freeing up valuable resources to perform more value added activities."

To address DevOps challenges, CA Technologies offers comprehensive CD solutions that allow organizations to:
* Adopt a model based approach to generating test cases and a test data management toolset, providing greater coverage that results in delivering a better user experience;
* Achieve true CD by testing every code change automatically across the entire promotion path; and
* Free up development and quality assurance resources previously engaged in test data and test case creation to perform more productive tasks, like new code development.

"Our customers have seen dramatic reductions in release test cycles and time required to fix defects while increasing quality of their applications," said Huw Price, co-founder of Grid-Tools. "The combination of CA Technologies and Grid-Tools provides enterprises with a strong option to bring testing to the next level by removing bottlenecks in their software development lifecycle."
