In today’s digital landscape, ensuring the optimal performance of your applications is paramount for delivering seamless user experiences. However, identifying potential bottlenecks is not easy. This analysis is one of the single most important activities in performance testing, but it’s often the most difficult one, and a misstep can cause significant setbacks.

For true end-to-end performance analysis, teams that use application monitoring tools (APMs) like DataDog for insight must be able to analyze the front-end user experience all the way to the back-end infrastructure components. However, viewing performance data separately from monitoring tools can be cumbersome and hinder the timely identification of issues.

End-to-end visibility in performance analysis

For these reasons, performance testing solutions should be seamlessly integrated with APM tools. Enter Tricentis NeoLoad. With NeoLoad, teams can push performance testing results from NeoLoad directly into DataDog’s analytics platform to facilitate deep-dive analysis. Now teams can view end-to-end performance data and trend it historically, without ever leaving the software platforms they are familiar with.

This allows monitoring teams to evaluate and understand the performance characteristics that they’ll be asked to run in the production environment. These teams can then correlate performance metrics with other relevant data sources, such as logs and traces, to quickly pinpoint the root cause of performance issues.

What’s more, with DataDog’s automation capabilities, teams can set up automated remediation actions based on predefined performance thresholds or anomalies detected during testing. This ensures that performance issues are addressed promptly, minimizing downtime and the impact on end users.

Only by adopting modern and comprehensive performance testing solutions like NeoLoad can you accurately simulate traffic in real-world scenarios while still providing meaningful performance feedback to application development teams. In an increasingly competitive digital landscape, NeoLoad’s close integration with DataDog delivers a powerful solution that accelerates performance analysis and helps you identify bottlenecks faster. This integration is indispensable for staying ahead of the curve in prioritizing performance and ultimately delivering superior user experiences.

Furthermore, NeoLoad leverages low-code/no-code technology, reducing the need for testers with specialized skills. It offers browser-based and protocol-based testing for significantly faster and comprehensive test creation. NeoLoad also delivers quick script maintenance, ensuring that you stay in alignment with a highly Agile rapid delivery cadence as part of your DevOps toolchain.
