Apica and Atex team up to supply Testing and Monitoring Services for Atex’s Media Customers

The following is an article by Apica and Apex about load testing.

"Apica, a leading load testing and performance-monitoring provider for web, cloud and mobile applications, has announced a partnership with Atex. According to the new agreement, Apica’s highly effective application testing and monitoring technologies will be available to Atex’s 1000+ media customers.

Apica’s solutions test, monitor and optimise web, cloud and mobile applications, and give businesses a true understanding of how those applications perform. Failure to deliver performance in an application will have a significant impact on the business. Testing applications both prior to deployment and after launch are critical to ensure uptime and optimal performance levels.

Using Apica LoadTest, Atex’s customers can reduce the risk of project failure due to capacity and load issues by providing a true understanding of how web, cloud and mobile applications will perform under stressed load conditions. Apica WebPerformance offers a complete website performance testing solution and enables users to monitor response times and stay on top of web performance, 24/7. Together, Apica LoadTest and Apica WebPerformance ensure excellence in the web, cloud and mobile.

Atex’s 1000+ media customers will benefit from the load test and web performance monitoring functions that will now be part of its integrated content management and advertising solutions. These advanced solutions by Atex, e.g. web CMS, editorial CMS, tablet publishing, ad serving and text mining, are used by media companies to streamline operations and optimise their digital strategies.

As part of the new partnership, Apica was a Gold Partner at the Atex TalkingPoint 2011 Global Symposium last week.
