Understand application performance from your global users’ perspective. Compuware APM is the only solution that tests the full application delivery chain in real world environments.

Customers do not access your website from your QA or development environment and neither should your web load testing tools. Compuware APM Web Load Testing is the only solution to combine cloud-based load generation from multiple geographic points of presence with thousands of real end-user desktops around the globe to test the full web application delivery chain and measure real end-user performance.

Your load tests are only as accurate as your testing network. APM maintains the industry’s largest and most comprehensive network to model real user experience.

Internal testing falls short of testing the diversity of geographic locations, ISPs, networks, desktop operating systems, browsers and Web 2.0 frameworks found in the real world. Don’t let customers be the first to test your applications in the wild. Ensure that your website can handle peak volumes by web application load testing with over a million virtual users from the Cloud and thousands of real-user desktops with the Compuware Web Load Testing solution.

Analyze Web 2.0 and AJAX Support with Ease and Accuracy

Web load testing approach

Save time and improve accuracy when testing modern Web 2.0 applications. Testing using real browsers delivers higher accuracy while minimizing scripting.

Traditional web load testing approaches do not easily support complex Web 2.0 technologies without days of scripting or loss of accuracy. The Compuware Web Load Testing approach uses real browsers for more accurate, real world results — minimizing complex and time-consuming scripting and parameterization.

Don't Just Find Performance Issues – Fix Them

Rapidly Determine Root Cause

Go beyond traditional load test tools that let you know a problem exists. With Compuware APM you’ll gain the insight needed to isolate, troubleshoot and fix problems.

Traditional web load testing tools only tell you that you have a problem – not where the problem lies. Compuware APM delivers x-ray vision down to the code level to identify the specific infrastructure or software component that is the root cause of performance issues. After just one test using the Compuware solution, you can isolate the root cause of performance degradation and go directly into problem analysis.

Eliminate Multiple Test Runs

Reduce test cycle time by up to 80% by capturing everything you need the first time around.

Fixing issues raised by load tests typically requires your organization’s most skilled and in-demand technical resources. Nearly every web load testing tools will find issues that require code changes, application tuning and retesting. Avoid the high cost of test runs simply to reproduce problems or test minor changes. The Compuware Web Load Testing solution captures complete, in-depth data on every transaction the first time — eliminating extra test cycles and saving you time and money.

Ensure Third-party Performance and Reliability

Web load testing third party

Replace vendor finger-pointing with fact-based assessments that help ensure that all third-party providers are meeting performance requirements.

Today’s web applications typically rely on third-party content providers or technology partners such as Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). The Compuware solution helps you understand which third-party vendors are not meeting performance requirements, and provides fact-based evidence to support timely remediation. It’s the only solution that combines load from the cloud with authentic end-user experience from our global last mile network to help you understand real CDN performance — before consumers are impacted.

Accelerate problem resolution by sharing more meaningful assets across test and production teams.

Record your scripts in test and leverage them in production to monitor your web applications 24x7…or quickly reproduce issues in test leveraging production-monitoring assets. No other load testing solution enables seamless re-use of assets between test and production.

Share Between Teams

Get more from your load testing investments with a fair and flexible licensing model.

Share the same load testing investment across multiple teams with a fair and flexible SaaS licensing model that allows multiple teams to leverage the load testing service at the same time. A single, shared SaaS model removes the need for on-premise hardware and software and reduces costs across multiple teams. A fair virtual user consumption model means that each team pays only for what it needs.

Accelerate Time to Market

Reduce testing iterations and cycle time with proactive problem resolution and prevention. Recorded sessions provide development, QA and operations teams a common platform for all to work from. Problem resolution becomes a collaborative effort to fix problems, rather than a challenge to find them.

Prevent Problems due to System Changes

Fix problems before you deploy applications. Easily discover and prevent performance problems due to hardware and software changes with automated architecture validation and regression testing. Assure applications deploy on time and maximum scalability for your website, even with agile development schedules and frequent releases.
