ADVISORY/ Hurwitz & Associates’ Analysts Available for Comment on HP’s Acquisition of Mercury Interactive
Waltham, Mass. –– Industry analysts Judith Hurwitz, president Hurwitz & Associates, and two partners of the firm, Robin Bloor and Marcia Kaufman are available to comment on the implications of HP’s announcement to purchase Mercury Interactive for $4.5 billion.
“HP’s acquisition of Mercury Interactive is a clear message to the marketplace of the company’s aggressive stance in building their software business,” said analyst Judith Hurwitz, president of Hurwitz & Associates. ”With Mercury Interactive, HP gains a critical component for the company’s service-oriented architecture (SOA) strategy.”
Mercury Interactive, based in Mountain View, California, makes application performance testing software that lets users check the performance of applications, particularly databases, middleware and custom applications, against their infrastructure to find weak spots. More recently, the company has begun selling a change management tool that lets users see how an upgrade to their infrastructure might impact business.
Judith Hurwitz has been following the application management space for more than fifteen years. She consulted with HP and has written extensively about SOA. Judith Hurwitz, Robin Bloor and Marcia Kaufman are available for further comment on this important business development.
