Appvance: Addressing Deficiencies in App Performance Testing withBeginning-to-End Performance Testin
It was at this time that California based Appvance was founded, and their attempt to leverage thatcustomer need met with unprecedented success. The firm, led by Kevin Surace, CEO, is recognized as the first player to test apps from the cloud whileincluding the user experience (presentation layer) and client-side code simulating thousands to millions of concurrent users. Appvanceoffers its technology as a license (in the public cloud or behind the clients firewall), as well as full-service…where the client does not need or have the resources to do testing themselves. Testing can be from cloud to cloud as well, as enterprises move their internal and external facing apps to cloud services. The companyserves large players like Pepsi, McKesson, 7-11, Bell Aliant, and many others around the world.
New Paradigm In Performance Testing
The so-called second generation testing tools surfaced about a decade ago. However, these tools were oriented towards load testing servers, anddidn’t pay attention to the fact that native and client-side code was on the way, thanks to Apple and later HTML5.
Appvance is the first to be able to fully engage all elements with advanced record and playback capabilities
Appvance also claims to be able to boost QA productivity over older tools some 5X, integrate fully with agile workflows, and even support popular open scripting languages like JMeter and Selenium.
The Roadmap Ahead
The agenda for the future mainly revolves around enhancing the capability of mobile testing, specificallywith native Android and iOSapps with load testing, which have been highly challenging to date with what is out there.
