Testing 2x faster: The impact of modern, agile performance testing with NeoLoad
To align with digital transformation initiatives, Raiffeisen wanted to evolve its performance testing practices. NeoLoad has helped Raiffeisen jump into the new age with faster, more agile, and more efficient load/performance testing. This enables greater testing coverage while using fewer staff—resulting in more reliable apps. Louis Stark, Software Engineer in the Test & QA department at Raiffeisen, shared, “NeoLoad’s technology is superior because it enables faster tests and more accurate validation. This provides increased flexibility, allowing us to adapt the platform to all our load requirements (e.g., augmenting our license to 7,000 VUs for a limited period to execute tests at a high load).”
Test tuning is also much more efficient. With NeoLoad, Raiffeisen can automatically check all the user paths, requiring far less time to fine-tune a script. What took two days to update with their previous solution takes one day with NeoLoad. Stark noted, “Saving 50% of our time is a huge gain.” When it comes to testing maintenance, the gain is even higher. Test maintenance is 80% faster with NeoLoad. Beyond efficiency gains for greater agility, NeoLoad provides better test accuracy. It covers test cases that were not possible before (e.g., WebSockets technology). Raiffeisen has reduced some test design-related issues up to 20%.
“We test 2x faster than we were able to before. The same test that would take us five days to write is now completed in half the time with NeoLoad.”
