CA Technologies has announced the purchase of BlazeMeter, a company that offers continuous performance application testing tools. CA plans to integrate BlazeMeter's technology into its Continuous Delivery solutions, providing better support for DevOps workflows and Agile software development.
“CA Technologies can bring to BlazeMeter what BlazeMeter lacks, and that is the sales, the marketing, the reach and scale,” said Alon Girmonsky, CEO of BlazeMeter. “BlazeMeter can bring the technology that CA lacks, which is kind of this continuous testing, DevOps-friendly testing infrastructure. [We can] go to market faster and bigger than BlazeMeter could have on its own.”
The companies did not disclose the purchase price, but some reports indicate it was in the neighborhood of $100 million.
