Founded in 1991, the client is one of the leading balanced scorecard implementation organizations, focused on delivering performance management solutions to customers, including tools, templates and framework. The client was seeking performance testing expertise for its SaaS-based balance scorecard web portal, which lacked adequate capabilities to handle large volumes of visitors. The client anticipated a huge growth in its customer base and saw a big opportunity for the software platform in terms of heavy user load. Hence, the application needed to be tested and optimized.
Contata faced several challenges in the project, including handling heavy user load and delivery under stringent timelines. Meeting tight deadlines required meticulous planning and efficient execution. Additionally, handling heavy user load on the portal could strain system resources and impact user experience. To ensure optimal performance, generating realistic test data in the application for load testing became crucial. Addressing these challenges required Contata to have a combination of technical expertise, scalability, and a proactive approach to ensure client satisfaction and success.
While analyzing the client’s requirements, Contata identified areas where load balancing could be implemented to support extra user load. The team provided top-notch load and capacity testing solutions to provide the client a robust platform capable of handling high user traffic.
Contata performed rigorous performance testing on the portal, including load and capacity testing to identify its performance bottlenecks in the back-end infrastructure, including code, database, and system resources. Performance tuning that included method performance and memory leakage negated unnecessary memory loss and system failure. In addition, optimal server configuration was identified to ensure an uninterrupted and highly reliable performance—even at peak user load. Through a comprehensive end-to-end performance testing effort, Contata successfully equipped the portal with enhanced stability and scalability features to provide an unhindered experience for its end-users.
