Gomez, the Web performance division of Detroit-based Compuware Corp. (Nasdaq: CPWR), and Philadelphia-based AppLabs, the world’s largest software testing and quality management company, today announced a partnership to deliver enhanced performance testing capabilities to customers.
Under the agreement, AppLabs will resell Gomez’s Web load and performance testing systems, which are used by organizations to optimize the performance and availability of Web and mobile applications.
AppLabs will offer Gomez’s on-demand, realistic load and website performance testing solution so customers can test and measure Web applications from the browser to the data center — to find and fix business-impacting performance issues that can occur anywhere in the Web application delivery chain. With Gomez, AppLabs’ customers can generate scalable, high-volume load from the cloud and real-world load from over 150,000 Gomez Last Mile desktops around the globe.
“Our partnership with Gomez will help us deliver enhanced performance testing capabilities to our customers,” said Scott Andress, VP and global leader of alliance and solutions engineering for AppLabs. “This partnership is a true win for our customers in determining the best approach and methodology for performance testing and validation of their business critical software projects.”
“As a leading software testing service provider, AppLabs is focused on helping customers maximize performance,” said Tom Meusel, vice president of worldwide channels at Gomez. “With Gomez and AppLabs, customers will have an even more powerful testing solution for faster identification, tracking and resolution of potentially damaging performance issues.”
