Performance Testing

We have all seen what happens when things go wrong with an IT system. From the crashing of the Click Frenzy sale in 2016, to the recent complete shutdown of a major Australian train network during peak hour, the result of poor performance testing for a business is embarrassing at best—and can be disastrous at worst. Performance testing will give you confidence that when people turn to your system, it won't turn them away.


Can you meet your application performance challenges?

Today, it’s a challenge to keep your mission-critical applications at peak performance and scalability levels as defined by the business. You need an effective way to predict system behaviour and performance under realistic stress conditions. In addition, when issues or bottlenecks occur, you need a quick way to diagnose the root cause and fix the problem.

A framework for better application performance.

Better application performance begins with an integrated framework for managing performance across the application lifecycle. This cyclical framework spans from the definition of business requirements to post-production refinements of your application. JDS can help you test, analyse, and validate your IT performance while mitigating the risks associated with application changes, deployments, and upgrades.
