SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Apica, a leading provider of Web Performance Monitoring and high capacity Load Testing tools, and New Relic, a Software Analytics and Application Performance Management company, have announced a technology partnership and integration. The partnership provides mutual customers the ability to correlate performance metrics from an Apica LoadTest™ with New Relic Application Performance Monitoring (APM) metrics to more effectively pinpoint bottlenecks and other performance concerns inside an application environment.
"New Relic offers an excellent platform for Application Performance Monitoring," says Apica's VP R&D, Erik Torlen. "When New Relic is combined with Apica LoadTest, our customers are better able to pinpoint the root cause of failures and vastly improve efficiency when analyzing test results."
Comprehensive Application Testing & Monitoring Platform
Managing the performance of today's mobile, web, and cloud applications requires a proactive, multi-faceted approach to performance testing. Applications now span across a variety of devices and computing environments, and it is both increasingly difficult and increasingly important for organizations to ensure optimal application performance, especially when load demands increase unexpectedly. Apica and New Relic's technology partnership helps organizations streamline this process and better analyze the direct impact increased loads have on key transaction performance.
Apica's New Relic integration allows customers to view New Relic data together with the results of a load test inside the LoadTest Portal. New Relic's end-to-end transaction tracing allows customers to follow the performance of a critical transaction across an entire environment while under stress from a load test − in real time.
"The integration between Apica and New Relic provides complete visibility into application performance," says Apica CEO, Sven Hammar. "These two powerful technologies combine to create one comprehensive application testing and monitoring platform."
