Empirix Launches QAZone, Online Community for Web QA and IT Professionals

Leader in Testing and Monitoring Develops Site Dedicated to the Exchange of Ideas and Best Practices Among Web QA Experts

BEDFORD, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 04/18/07 -- Empirix® Inc., which helps organizations adopt complex communications solutions with confidence, announced today the availability of QAZone, a new online community that allows Web QA professionals to collaborate, communicate and address cutting-edge application quality issues. Visitors can get tips on methodologies, access test code samples and monitoring profiles, and obtain extensions to Empirix's Web products, all while sharing their knowledge with others in the field through Empirix's online forums.

Empirix piloted QAZone to a select group of Web QA professionals in February, and the level of interest and participation far exceeded what the company initially anticipated.

"We've used QAZone since its inception and have found it to be a great resource for exchanging methodologies and code with other Web QA professionals," said Erik Grimmelmann, Chief Architect for SendWordNow. "With our applications centered on Web services, having direct connection to a global QA community of experts has given SendWordNow valuable insight into how we determine best practices for testing our applications. The knowledge gained from Empirix's QAZone has definitely made a positive impact on our Quality Assurance initiatives."

Top QAZone features include:

--  A resource center containing best practices, code samples and test
    scripts, along with product extensions;
--  The ability to rate articles and authors and offer recommendations for
    new topics;
--  The opportunity to be notified as new content is added to a forum or
    category;
--  Updates on Empirix product and industry news, as well as upcoming
    events; and
--  Direct communication with Empirix experts within the forums.
    

"QAZone is another great example of how Empirix is supporting not only customers like Synchronoss, but the global Web QA community at large," said Andy Cox, CIO of Synchronoss Technologies. "Quality testing for Web applications is critical to our business, and having technical insight from other QA experts at our fingertips is a huge asset."

"Following the launch of QAZone just a couple of months ago, we've been excited to see the rapid growth in registrants and the increasing number of active discussions," said Larry Timm, Vice President of Empirix's Web Business Unit. "We think this speaks to the clear need within the QA community for a forum where QA and IT professionals can both learn from one another and collaborate on a global scale."

Registration for QAZone is free and open to everyone. Anyone interested in joining can do so by visiting http://qazone.empirix.com. After registering, QAZone users have free access to the knowledgebase and resource center as well as the QAZone forums for Performance Testing, Test Management/Functional Testing, Performance Monitoring and Community feedback. While most forums are open to the public, special sections with detailed documentation are exclusively available for Empirix customers.
