MindTree and iTKO to Compete with Parasoft

MindTree and iTKO LISA will compete with other SOA testing vendors including Parasoft

MindTree announced that it has entered into a global strategic alliance with iTKO LISA. MindTree will develop a ready-to-use testing framework and deliver solutions for the Travel, BFSI, Media and Retail industries using the iTKO tool set that will be made available to MindTree's customers across the globe helping them cut time-to-market by up to 20%.

"SOA applications are gaining momentum in the IT Services market, and as adoption increases, MindTree is intensifying focus on providing industry-specific testing solutions with a core SOA test team approaching 200 people," said Ananda Rao Ladi, vice president and head of the Testing Practice at MindTree. "Through our alliance with iTKO, the capabilities of our SOA test team are further strengthened with the ability to test across components and differing standards, greatly increasing productivity and value."

MindTree's independent Testing Practice is the largest group within the company with over 2000 members. MindTree's Testing Practice helps deliver business and technology solutions with world-class quality. MindTree provides partners with in-depth experience in test methodologies, frameworks, tools and processes. Its industry-focused testing services ensure that IT applications meet growing business needs with high performance and availability as well as ensure that products are of high quality and reliable.

"MindTree's go-to-market approach with iTKO offers customers the best of both worlds in terms of SOA technology and expertise," said Satendar Bhatia, VP of strategic alliances at iTKO LISA. "Pairing the LISA solution's leading SOA testing and validation capabilities with MindTree's deep expertise in delivering total quality throughout the SOA lifecycle, will take much of the complexity and risk out of migrating and integrating complex systems for our joint customers."

According to Gartner the market for IT professional services involving SOA, Web services and Web 2.0 will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 27% from $58.9 billion in 2006 to $154 billion in 20101.

LISA stands for "Learn, Invoke, Simulate, Analyze," and is a unified SOA testing platform with the ability to deeply analyze and test most middle-tier and front-end components of SOA applications. When testing needs expand, LISA can also build and run directly against the targeted systems. The fully integrated LISA suite of products can test from design, to development and throughout deployment to meet the full quality lifecycle needs of enterprise software and SOA applications.

We are indeed excited here at iTKO about the go-to-market opportunities with a leading service provider like MindTree. We have been competing in (and, we dare say, leading) the SOA testing software market for years with our LISA software. While this announcement is an element of a strong partner ecosystem for iTKO customers to rely on, it is certainly not the first time we have been highly competitive with other vendors. Appreciated the story!
