SmartBear Software Named to SD Times 100 for Fifth Year

Recognized as a Leader and Innovator in Quality Assurance
Beverly, MA — June 12, 2011 —

SmartBear Software today announced it has been named a 2011 SD Times 100 winner for leadership and innovation in Quality Assurance. This is the fifth year SmartBear has been named to the SD Times 100. The company was previously recognized for leadership and innovation in automated testing with TestComplete and in application lifecycle management with ALMComplete, DevComplete and QAComplete.

With a user community of over 100,000 and growing, SmartBear has become a leading platform and resource for development, QA and IT operations teams in support of the entire quality lifecycle, anywhere – on the desktop, mobile and the cloud.

Joe Krivickas, CEO, SmartBear said, “We are honored for this prestigious recognition by SD Times for our continued leadership in quality assurance among the software development industry. This is truly a testament to the successful year we have had, tripling the SmartBear business and expanding our product offerings to meet the needs of our customers. We are committed to offering affordable, enterprise-class tools to increase productivity, improve quality and collaboration, and simplify processes throughout the software development lifecycle.

This SD Times 100 recognition comes on the heels of a highly productive year for SmartBear and the release of major new versions across all product lines, including automated testing, peer review, performance profiling and application lifecycle management. The company also acquired AlertSite, a global leader in Web and mobile performance management solutions, expanding its cloud and mobile offerings and enabling customers to drive quality from development and testing of websites and applications, to assuring their continued performance after deployment.

Alan Zeichick, Co-Founder and Editorial Director of BZ Media’s SD Times, said, “The software development industry has always been led by innovation, and that’s true even in today’s challenging economic climate. When choosing the 2011 SD Times 100 winners, we carefully considered each organization’s products and services, reputation with enterprise development managers, and the new ideas and thought leadership that it has brought to the industry. Thanks to companies like SmartBear, known for its focus on software quality across teams, the art of software development continues to advance at a rapid pace."
