Compuware Increases Business Productivity With Latest Version of QACenter Performance Edition

1/14/2003 - Compuware Corporation (NASDAQ: CPWR) has enhanced its load testing solution, helping companies like Corporate Services save time and money by increasing application tester productivity. Compuware QACenter Performance Edition 4.8.3 is a highly scalable load testing and server metrics solution that solves business application problems with improved scripting, enhanced reliability of test scripts and other tester productivity enhancements.

“Using Performance Edition 4.8.3 has totally removed the guessing game of application performance,” said Robert Boenne, Senior Network Engineer for Corporate Services. “We’ve used other tools, but the Compuware product helped us quickly zero in and isolate application problem areas. The value of this solution has proven exponential: before using QACenter, our application crashed at 15 users, and now it is able to handle more than 5,000.”

A marketing support organization, Corporate Services helps client companies achieve marketing initiatives through order fulfillment and warehousing, call center, data processing, printing services and software applications. Corporate Services needed a way to achieve confidence in its B2B application by understanding not only its break point, but also the diagnostics behind isolating and fixing the problems found during testing--something it was only able to approximate before by using other tools.

In version 4.8.3, QACenter Performance Edition introduces faster scripting and improved frames support, which reduces scripting size. This latest version also accelerates testing time, productivity and efficiency--enabling organizations to more easily achieve service level agreements. It helps businesses accurately record and play back thousands of virtual user transactions, thereby creating accurate simulations to measure the performance and scalability of entire applications. In addition, QACenter Performance Edition produces server metrics reports that are useful to developers, testers, managers and others.

“Highly visible web application failures are costly, yet preventable,” said Mark Eshelby, Product Manager for Compuware. “Corporate Services realized that Compuware QACenter Performance Edition provides business value by identifying the root cause of performance problems and helping ensure high-performance applications. With these most recent efficiency and productivity advancements, this solution is a great enterprise resource for companies demanding go-live application reliability and confidence with quantifiable ROI gains.”

Compuware QACenter Performance Edition is part of Compuware’s overall software quality portfolio that combines people, processes and products to help organizations achieve business value through high-performing, high-quality applications.
