AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ — Surgient, the visionary of self-service virtualization automation and lab management, today announced that it will be participating in two upcoming virtualization industry events that will highlight, through customer examples and demonstrations, the power of the Surgient Virtual Automation Platform.

Hemanth Guttikonda, QA manager at Insuresoft, will be featured in a live webinar, "Accelerate Test Cycles and Increase Software Quality with Policy-Driven Self-Service(TM)." Scheduled for Wednesday, September 10, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. eastern time, the webinar will explain how Surgient's solutions are used to set up and tear down application testing and QA environments. Insuresoft development teams rely on Surgient's Virtual Automation Platform to save development time and more quickly deliver products to market by eliminating the need for IT to set up specific software lab testing environments.

During the webinar, Guttikonda will describe how Insuresoft combined the Surgient Virtual Automation Platform with HP Quality Center as a self-service solution to set up testing environments that quickly find and fix software defects. Surgient issued a press release in June that describes in more detail Insuresoft's use of Surgient's products (See "Insuresoft Selects Surgient …," June 17, 2008.)

Surgient executives will also demonstrate its Virtual Automation Platform at the Microsoft virtualization launch event (Get Virtual Now) on September 8 in Bellevue, Wash. Surgient is a silver sponsor, and it will be exhibiting in booth S8.

"As virtualization is adopted more broadly, Surgient is delivering solutions that allow IT to capitalize on virtualized resources by setting up policy-driven self-service methods for access to those resources," said Dave Malcolm, CTO, Surgient. "In this way, IT maintains control and saves significant time and resources by letting employees drive the process of configuring environments for software testing, training and demonstrating. We will show how this works, based on real customer deployments, in the weeks to come."
