Surgient Links To HP

Austin-based Surgient, a developer of IT management tools used for virtualization and lab automation, said earlier this week that it has linked its product with HP Quality Center 10.0, a product used to manage QA testing environments. Surgient said that HP's product can be used to create, manage, and tear down virtual labs create with Surgient's tools. Both tools are used by quality assurance and testing groups to manage software configurations for testing. Surgient is venture backed by Austin Ventures, BlueStream Ventures, Crosslink Capital, Goldman Sachs, MFI Austin, and Sternhill Partners.
