Today, more and more processes in daily (working) life are being handled online. These include inventory management, processing business transactions, registering for events and making bookings. The demands on the IT systems are high. After all, sometimes thousands of users access the applications concurrently. The user experience can get frustrating very quickly if the tools of the trade do not perform reliably. This adversely affects user acceptance of applications, and, worse yet, a lot of time is wasted due to inefficiencies. Poor performance therefore directly translates into a financial risk for your company.
Consequently, performance testing must be considered a key quality factor. Whether small or large applications, you should always perform performance tests to determine if your systems handle high loads well.
The importance of efficient systems is increasingly being understood more broadly. The CIO of a leading financial firm put it like this:
”The feedback we get [from processors…] indicates that performance is a hot topic. We have a lot of work ahead of us...
What our customers want:
- High-performance applications that support efficient work
No surprises when usage increases or after rolling out releases
Professional test management in advance, incl. performance measurements and load simulations
Our Performance Test Service
When developing a strategy, we first sit down with you to define important aspects, for example: Who accesses the application? What method is used for this? How are the backend systems stored? Based on the answers to these questions, we create test plans in consultation with you, simulate business processes, perform load tests and measure the performance of your systems every step of the way. We also offer to provide test system support (coordination, administration, technical provision).
Our services help you to effectively counter poor performance and pave the way to an efficient application landscape.
metafinanz analyzes your initial situation, creates a test concept together with you, designs test cases and controls/monitors the test project. The progress of your test project is communicated in management-friendly progress reports.
We automate tests that are performed repeatedly (e.g. regression tests). This reduces the cost, resource utilization and duration of the project.
We measure the response time for each (simulated) business transaction one step at a time, analyze the results and present them in a manner aligned with the requirements of management.
We scrutinize the performance of the test system by means of scalable tests and determine load profiles.
Test System Support
metafinanz tends to your test systems, coordinates the test slots, controls performance parameters, manages authorizations in compliance with data protection guidelines, and takes care of the technical provision of the environment (version management and data provision).
