Oracle has entered into an agreement to acquire the e-Test suite of products from Empirix, a provider of voice and web application testing and monitoring technology.
E-Test is designed to help customers deploy applications more efficiently. The technology will be incorporated into Oracle Enterprise Manager and Oracle Real Application Testing.
"Application testing is becoming increasingly important as customers seek to deploy applications faster, at a lower cost and with higher quality of service, " said Leng Leng Tan, vice president of applications and systems management at Oracle.
"Customers are looking for automated testing solutions that help prevent costly application performance problems, avoid unplanned outages of business-critical applications, and automate the manual steps involved in application testing."
Financial details were not disclosed, and the transaction remains subject to "certain closing conditions".
Empirix's web application testing business will continue to be part of Empirix until the deal is finalised.
