Application Go-Live

Imagine you're gearing up for a new app launch or an updated product release.

Anticipating a surge of eager users, you’ve invested in marketing and announcements. But when thousands arrive, your system falters, damaging your reputation and disrupting business.

Avoid this scenario by conducting pre-release performance testing to preempt bottlenecks and ensure a smooth launch.

The numbers tell a story of their own

Any failure during the release of a new product or version can result in audience rejection and costly downtime.
90%
Over 90% of new applications that fail load testing experience audience rejection and costly downtime during release.
70%
A staggering 70% of mobile app users abandon an app if it takes too long to load.
62%
If users encounter mobile crashes, freezes, or errors, 62% of them choose to uninstall the app.
$950 bln
App revenue is projected to reach nearly $950 billion by 2023, sourced from in-app advertising and paid downloads, according to app revenue statistics.
Addressing performance issues proactively ensures a successful release and helps avoid negative consequences.
Stopping business processes due to system failures under load.
Financial and reputational losses, and the risk of losing customer loyalty, as well.
In case of internal corporate software, there is a risk that employees will stop installing updates or switch to third-party software, creating security risks.

Learn what our strategy is all about

Before launching the application live, we recommend conducting performance testing. We set up a test environment mirroring the real production in advance.
It simulates real-life conditions, including the number of users, operations performed, and the data set size (especially for updated versions of existing systems). Our testing covers both the expected and higher load in order to identify potential issues, such as system failures or slowdowns.

Android Apps Performance and Load Testing: Tips and Tricks
May 4, 2022

There are about 3.5 mln apps in Google Play Store. Users have options, and you need them to choose your app. To avoid the nightmare of every product owner, namely, the situation in which the user uninstalls your app for Android OS, performance testing is crucial. It should be started when designing the application, continued when writing the code, and ran before every new release. Some of the ways to do performance testing of Android apps are built in the OS, while others are available on the web. In this article, we list both types for your developers to be able to test the app every now and then.

Application Performance Monitoring vs Crash Reporting
Apr 5, 2022

A site or application is only as good as its users say it is. That may sound a bit harsh, but the reality is that unhappy users will look for other solutions. Customers expect websites to be fast and error-free – essentially, they expect it to “just work”. By putting comprehensive monitoring tools in place, you can be sure to rise to meet customer expectations and to quickly correct any errors or issues that arise.
