The SmartBear team is thrilled to announce our new application quality and performance management platform: AlertSite UXM. This SaaS platform was designed with our customers' best interests in mind in order to allow them to deliver superior end user experiences quickly and easily.
Software teams are under ever-increasing pressure to deliver applications that provide an extraordinary user experiences while simultaneously shortening the time between development and deployment. There are several factors that make this a difficult proposition.
Gartner has stated, “By 2014, 75% of the Fortune 1000 will offer public Web APIs.” These APIs provide another point of potential user experience problems. When the inevitable user experience issues do occur, determining why critical applications fail to perform as required can be an expensive and time consuming proposition.
AlertSite UXM is the first rapid time-to-value, easy-to-deploy, easy-to-use platform that brings together load testing, synthetic and real transaction monitoring delivered as either a SaaS or on-premise offering. AlertSite UXM provides complete monitoring and transaction tracing capabilities, not just for applications, but also APIs to assist in rapid root cause analysis. Pre-deployment load testing can also be performed to ensure application performance.
AlertSite UXM unifies the most critical application and API management capabilities with best-of-breed code-level diagnostics. As a result, development, testing, operations and business teams can all work from the same data to efficiently share their insights and closely collaborate to reduce the time to find and resolve issues while also moving the organization closer to a continuous delivery software model.
AlertSite UXM is comprised of three new modules:
- AlertSite UXM Synthetic: Measures simulated users and includes easy-to-use and deploy transaction tracing based on innovative technology acquired from APM vendor Lucierna
- AlertSite UXM Real: Measures actual user transactions down to code level root cause analysis
- AlertSite UXM Load: Highly scalable load test service to validate application performance from the user’s point of view
Available today is AlertSite UXM Synthetic with transaction tracing (see below). You can expect the other modules in the AlertSite UXM Platform to be rolled out throughout this summer.
