Gomez Testing Platform Upgrade Helps Users Detect Browser, Device, Cloud and 3rd-Party Provider Issues
The software developer Gomez (www.gomez.com) has updated its performance management platform, which offers support for multiple browsers and load testing of mobile and web applications, and detection of performance problems created by the clouds and the third party service providers.
According to Monday’s announcement, new capabilities help organizations to optimize the web and mobile experiences for all end users regardless of location, choice of browser or device. Gomez, the performance division of Compuware Corporation’s website (www.compuware.com), records and running performance tests with Firefox and Internet Explorer on any test agents Gomez’s global network and a local PC.
This approach provides an instant comparison of performance of applications in the browser with granular detail on the overall response time, the number of connections and the firing sequence of objects, help developers optimize the performance of different browsers and operations IT equipment to improve troubleshooting.
“As more and more applications are built from multiple third-party components and accessed through a wider choice of browsers and mobile devices, prevent and resolve performance problems becomes exponentially more and more Web time,” Gomez CTO Imad Mouline said in a statement. “The enhanced platform Gomez solves all these problems, help companies spend less time troubleshooting and more time delivering great experiences and mobile Web.”
Web delivery of quality and performance of mobile applications is not only an IT challenge, but also a business imperative. The poor performance website may lead to end-users away, hitting a mark and, in turn, revenue. Today’s Web and wireless applications are increasingly rich, with content and functionality such as advertising, video, web analytics and purchasing tools from cloud providers and several others.
Ultimately, all these components must come together and work in the end user’s browser, however, these items or services of third parties may degrade the overall performance of the application. In addition, the widest choice of browsers, browser versions and mobile devices further complicates the challenge of performance. Each browser and the device works differently, creating considerable differences in performance and often unpredictable.
To address this problem, testing on-demand web platform and measures Gomez and mobile applications of the “outside in” – by all users, browsers, devices and geographies – with the aid of a global network of more than 100,000 locations to provide load testing, performance management, cross-browser testing, and analysis of business performance.
All solutions in the update Gomez whole platform are available immediately on a subscription basis. When combined with Compuware Vantage, Gomez offers a complete solution to optimize application performance across the enterprise and the Internet.
