The UK’s leading debt-management organization was unable to identify and resolve a memory leak problem that was degrading performance within its cloud-hosted Pega application. They had an immediate need to address these mission-critical issues, since Pega is their “backbone” platform. But longer term, the organization was looking for a better performance testing framework to ensure that the Pega application scales to meet the expected surge in traffic.
As the organization migrated to the cloud-based Pega platform, its existing open-source performance testing tool became a hurdle when validating the complex 200+ transaction business flow within the faster build pipeline. Running performance tests was time-consuming and not scalable; the tool was reporting inaccurate response times, required a lot of manual script maintenance, and was limited in its ability to integrate into automated CI/CD pipelines.
A leading UK debt-management organization was able to reduce complex script design and maintenance for Pega apps by 60% — from 17 days to about a week — with Tricentis NeoLoad.
- Pinpointed mission-critical performance issue that previous tool could not identify
- Reduced complex script design/update time by 60% — from 3.5 to 1.5 days
- Saved $3,000 per monthly release
- Reduced manual correlation of 200-transaction scripts
