Web performance and end-user experience monitoring company Rigor announced today that it has selected SOASTA, the leader in performance analytics, as its exclusive Real User Monitoring (RUM) technology partner. Rigor will integrate and resell SOASTA’s RUM solution with their existing digital performance monitoring offerings, further advancing front-end monitoring intelligence for their customers.
"By partnering with SOASTA, we are able to create a one-of-a-kind platform that couples and correlates revenue performance with application performance ” said Rigor CEO Craig Hyde. "Adding SOASTA's RUM deepens our ability to turn performance data into actionable intelligence by providing greater context to traditional monitoring data. Through our acquisition of Zoompf in 2015, we provided our customers with the ability to turn our global performance data into prioritized and actionable plans for performance remediation. With SOASTA's RUM, our customers will have the ability to correlate performance data with business metrics, further contextualizing the impact of performance for digital organizations and significantly differentiating Rigor from the old guard of monitoring systems."
Added SOASTA CEO Tom Lounibos, “We are thrilled with the partnership, a true game-changer, and we look forward to working with Rigor to jointly advance digital performance management capabilities in the market. Customers are eager to integrate the advanced performance and business analytics offered by our RUM solution with the global active monitoring and industry-leading diagnostics provided by Rigor’s digital performance monitoring platform.
"At CNET.com, performance optimization is ingrained in our culture. Nothing goes live without knowing the impact to our performance budget’s bottom line. While developing this culture we have found no better resources than SOASTA for RUM and Rigor for synthetic performance monitoring. With Rigor aligning with SOASTA, the best-in-breed for both RUM and synthetic monitoring can be found in a unified solution!”, said Jason Trester, Sr. Director of Site Engineering, CNET.com, ZDNet.com, TechRepublic.com at CBS Interactive
"The combination of Rigor and SOASTA helped to fill a significant blind spot for Spreadshirt. These solutions provide us greater insights into how well our different applications run for our customers. They also enable us to measure how services we depend on, like our DNS provider, CDN and third-party libraries perform over time. This information allows us to make data-driven decisions to solve apparent problems for our digital audience, consequently increasing revenue. Seeing both tools further integrate towards a unified solution is exciting news and will make them even more valuable to us.”, said Guido Laures, CTO at Spreadshirt
