Performance Testing

Not taking performance testing seriously means you may not know how well (or how poor) your application performs under load. With today’s digitally savvy users, poor application performance is punished immediately with bad user ratings, lost customers, and lost business. Consistently good application performance is now essential to business success. This is where the quality of application performance enters the picture. Given the complexities of today’s modern application environments, applications should be tested early, often, and thoroughly in the development cycle using processes and solutions to fit your specific needs.

How can Northway Help

Effective testing needs to be accompanied by strong process that can work with waterfall, agile, and continuous development and deployment.

Performance testing cannot be just another checklist item. Without good processes, performance testing will always be reactive instead of proactive, and executed too late in the development and testing cycles to be truly effective.

Northway offers performance engineers with a structured performance testing methodology. Our best practices will help detect performance bottlenecks early in the testing cycle. Our goal is to provide immediate ROIand longer term solutions.

Northway has been a leading provider of Performance testing services for over a decade. We are the leading experts when it comes to using Micro Focus’s LoadRunner in the Enterprise. Whether you are deploying a new web-based Rich Internet Application, a Citrix/Xenapp deployed application, Mobile applications, or packaged applications such as Hyperion, Oracle Financials, and SAP modules – Northway has the experience to handle it and the related challenges.
