Comprehensive Performance Engineering Expertise


Build predictive power into
every code release.


Embrace real-word user activity. Model usage patterns; measure behavior patterns.


Implement testing, tuning, optimization and monitoring throughout the SDLC.

Load Generation

Generate, control and apply artificial activity with the system using controllable virtual users that represent how real end users interact with the system.

Usage Models

Predict future user behavior, system stress and potential UX issues by capturing and modeling real-world user activity. Gain peace of mind knowing test data represents reality.

Model-based Testing

Stimulate the system under test through “day in the life” scenarios. Gain quantifiable data about load and stress capacity as well as actionable recommendations for tuning.


Establish baselines to measure the load/stress bearing capacity of a system at the moment of testing. Know how many users the system can support and how fast response times are.



Understand performance impacts that may occur as a result of changes made to the system under test. Increased visibility into the state of systems enables informed decisions.

Tuning & Optimization

Continuously remove bottlenecks at the component level to increase system capacity without adversely affecting response time or incurring additional spend.


Test Suites

Increase productivity and reduce spend with reusable assets. Create an abstraction of your usage model to reach a maintainable set of test scripts.

Capacity Management

Avoid performance surprises. Take an enterprise level perspective of a system’s load and scaling capabilities to develop a predictive capacity planning strategy.

Load & Monitoring Tools

The right tools help attribute causality to system response times and provide visibility into system roadblocks, giving you actionable data to simplify performance tuning efforts.

Test Environments

Ensure efficient utilization of test architecture while providing the right amount of fit-for-purpose environments. Provision reusable test environments that mirror production at a moment’s notice.


Failover Testing

Systematically schedule testing to ensure high availability requirements such as response and up times will meet SLAs in the event of a system failure.

Disaster Recovery

Be prepared for catastrophic events with a disaster recovery plan that focuses on business continuity.

Overcoming Four Common Obstacles to Effective APM

When done right, application performance management gives companies increased visibility that reduces risk, enables better decision-making and provides peace of mind. However, many companies face organizational barriers that prevent them from fully harnessing the predictive power this discipline can bring …

Betting the Business: Releasing a New Insurance SaaS Product with Confidence

To drive revenue growth and expand market share, a leading insurance company created a new supplemental insurance service that generates online quotes for healthcare professionals. But utilizing a third-party web application raised questions regarding how the new system would perform and behave under stress …

Embracing a Shift to Test Automation

While it’s true that test automation does make certain portions of the manual tester’s job obsolete, testing is not disappearing as a discipline. In fact, testing is an increasingly integral part of the software development process as companies strive to maintain product quality while delivering to the market faster than ever before.
