CA Technologies has purchased Grid-Tools, a development and testing tool vendor, for an undisclosed sum. Just over a week ago, CA bought Rally Software, another development tool vendor. Both acquisitions help CA strengthen its portfolio of DevOps and Agile software development products.
"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, an executive vice president at CA. "Adding Grid-Tools' test solutions, development and test teams can accelerate the entire lifecycle while freeing up valuable resources to perform more value-added activities."
