Appvance Adds New Relic APM Testing To PerformanceCloud

Continuous Simulated User Load Gets To The Root Cause of App Performance Issues Faster

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Appvance Inc., a leader in app performance testing, announced the addition of Application Performance Management (APM) integration with New Relic in Appvance PerformanceCloud, its third generation cloud testing platform that combines functional, performance, stress, load tests and monitoring, with New Relic.

"Our customers have requested this new capability we call Proactive APM," said Kevin Surace, CEO at Appvance. "Before this, APM was most useful once an app launched, the app delivered a poor end-user experience, and was flagged by New Relic. Proactive APM gives business managers, engineers, and testers a way to anticipate the end-user experience while the app is under development, then compare simulated user performance to real user performance once the app launches. This allows for instant diagnoses when there are production issues, by comparing expected transaction times with potential issues. If you are already using New Relic, you'll want to add Appvance PerformanceCloud to your app development and testing environment."

Appvance PerformanceCloud (APC) is the first beginning-to-end test system which accurately drives 100% of the actual user interactions, even with complex HTML5 and AJAX client-side code. APC has had a monitoring capability to correlate resource – CPU, Network, Memory, and other aspects of performance – to app end-user experiences. Adding integration with New Relic helps surface and pinpoint app end-user performance issues and functional issues in Web apps, Ajax apps, Mobile (iOS/Android), and Oracle Forms apps more easily and more accurately.

The new features include:

  • Integrated New Relic Monitoring to App Server, DB Server, Load Balancer, Node.js Server
  • Quickly create Benchmarks to App Performance for DevOps and Engineers
  • Live Web-based Results, Drill Downs to Request/Response Level As The Tests Run
  • Analysis From Simulated Use Of Your App to CPU, Net, Memory, DB Query Analysis
  • Use New Relic Application Performance Management For Deeper Root Cause Analysis
  • 85 Reports from Results Repository for 
App Functional and Performance Analysis
  • Define Appvance PerformanceCloud Integration To Any New Relic Report
  • Select An App Transaction, see New Relic Report on Server, App, DB
  • Runs AWS Cloud, Private Grid datacenter, or Both
  • Compatible with Selenium, JMeter, Sahi, Appium, Java, PHP, Perl Tests
  • Data driven tests and analysis from live operational test data sources

From the latest Ajax JavaScript toolkits to legacy Oracle Forms, from video to mobile apps, APC drives dramatically higher productivity in SQA, and thus deeper analysis. APC runs in a public cloud or in a private cloud behind the firewall to fully support Agile workflows defined in popular test scripting languages such as Selenium, JMeter, Sahi, Appium, Java, PHP, Perl for all test methods, and includes Appvance's patent-pending uxAvatar technology, that allows even complex sites and apps to be tested without coding. APC is installation-less and runs fully within any browser, including IE, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Mobile Web browsers.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Learn how IoT, cloud, social networks and last but not least, humans, can be integrated into a seamless integration of cooperative organisms both cybernetic and biological. This has been enabled by recent advances in IoT device capabilities, messaging frameworks, presence and collaboration services, where devices can share information and make independent and human assisted decisions based upon social status from other entities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless...
The IoT's basic concept of collecting data from as many sources possible to drive better decision making, create process innovation and realize additional revenue has been in use at large enterprises with deep pockets for decades. So what has changed? In his session at @ThingsExpo, Prasanna Sivaramakrishnan, Solutions Architect at Red Hat, discussed the impact commodity hardware, ubiquitous connectivity, and innovations in open source software are having on the connected universe of people, thi...
WebRTC: together these advances have created a perfect storm of technologies that are disrupting and transforming classic communications models and ecosystems. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Cary Bran, VP of Innovation and New Ventures at Plantronics and PLT Labs, provided an overview of this technological shift, including associated business and consumer communications impacts, and opportunities it may enable, complement or entirely transform.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
