iTKO Releases LISA 4.6 Product Suite with Third Generation Service Virtualization Capabilities, Enhanced UI Testing, and Expanded Policy Validation and Governance Support


LISA 4.6 Suite Proven at Key Enterprise Customers and Reviewed by Analyst Firm Butler Group

iTKO, the leading provider of testing, validation and virtualization solutions for distributed enterprise applications that leverage SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture), BPM (Business Process Management), integration suites, and ESBs, today announced the general availability release of their flagship LISA™ product suite version 4.6. iTKO’s LISA product suite has achieved success by helping iTKO customers lower the cost of quality across their application lifecycle while improving agility, shortening release cycles, and eliminating critical development and testing constraints. iTKO continues to experience record growth with more than 100 percent revenue growth and the addition of more than 30 Global 2000 enterprise customers in 2008.
“Our customers are experiencing greater pressure to deliver software faster with fewer resources and lower costs – all while simultaneously holding the line on quality,” said John Michelsen, co-founder and Chief Scientist, iTKO. “These challenges are forcing enterprise customers to look for new solutions to help them manage very complex development and test environments that are subject to constant change. LISA is helping them put higher quality and agility back into their software lifecycle under these more aggressive test and delivery commitments.”
LISA Version 4.6 contains several improvements to help organizations more quickly realize the benefits of infrastructure cost savings, reduced project risk, faster time-to-market and greater software quality: 
  • Third-generation service virtualization for rapid simulation of complete test environments. LISA enables automated modeling and simulation of inaccessible or unavailable IT resources into virtual test environments for development and testing purposes, providing realistic behaviors and stateful transactions just as a production environment would. LISA virtualization can be applied to nearly any technology environment including mainframes and remote third party systems. Version 4.6 improvements enable faster and more accurate creation of virtual test environments, and the ability to virtualize an even broader array of IT resources.
  • Enhanced UI testing support for new RIA/Web 2.0 application delivery models. LISA accelerates the process of testing and ensuring quality for today’s Rich Internet-based Applications, including detailed requirements validation for Java Swing, Flash, AJAX, Flex and ActiveX. New browser-native testing controls enable LISA testers to verify that these applications function as expected in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and other delivery methods.
  • Increased governance and policy validation support for distributed composite applications, including SOA, BPM, Cloud and others. LISA supports the enforcement and verification of policies and Service Level Agreements (SLA) by validating business outcomes and results using event-based triggers such as service publishing, or validating continuously while in production. LISA validation tests can be launched natively within governance infrastructures and registry/repositories such as HP Systinet, Software AG’s Centrasite, SOA Software Workbench, TIBCO ActiveMatrix, and SAP NetWeaver.
LISA 4.6 also includes several usability enhancements based on customer feedback, and expanded platform and standards support including Eclipse, CORBA, SAML 2.0, REST-based validation approaches, and others. The LISA 4.6 release has already been successfully deployed at several iTKO customers with upgrades continuing across the LISA customer base.
Butler Group Technical Assessment of LISA 4.6 Now Available
Butler Group, a UK-based IT analyst firm, has completed a third-party technology audit on the LISA 4.6 product suite, including a review of product functionality, operation, deployment, and perspectives on product strategy and future directions.
“Butler Group believes that the iTKO LISA solution stands out with its ability to offer a range of testing, validation, and virtualization capabilities for multi-tier, heterogeneous IT infrastructures,” said Rob Hailstone, Software Infrastructure Practice Director at Butler Group. “LISA offers out-of-the-box support for over 60 different technologies, and is unique in both its virtualization capabilities and ability to deliver a single integrated solution for all aspects of unit, functional, regression, performance and load testing for component-based application architectures.”
