Philadelphia (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
Shunra Software, the industry-recognized authority in network virtualization for software testing, is pleased to announce that a column written by Vice President of Product Strategy Dave Berg, made APMDigest’s list of “Top Articles and Blogs – 2013.” The article, entitled "Don’t Let Perishable Apps Go Bad," was the site’s 11th most read article and the 5th most read contributed column.
In the article, Mr. Berg shared application testing best practices for developing applications that are designed to last only a few days or hours. Given recent high-profile app failures, such as the Mitt Romney campaign’s voter turnout app “Orca,” this topic was top of mind in the application performance management (APM) community.
“While the purpose of your perishable app might not be for something as important as winning a presidential election, the blowback to your business could be proportional if it fails,” said Mr. Berg. “What you can do is to think about performance as a critical requirement from the beginning. There is no reason why performance for perishable apps should be an afterthought. If you are developing an app, it is for a specific reason and your users will expect it to meet their performance needs. Anything less reflects negatively on your company's reputation and, perhaps, bottom line. Through proper planning, testing, and by having additional resources at the ready, you can ensure your perishable app provides users with a satisfying, rather than rotten, experience.”
“We are extremely proud of all our experts for their continued thought leadership and industry expertise on these important APM topics,” said Bill Varga, Shunra COO. “The fact that this article was one of the most read in such a significant industry publication demonstrates the interest in creating better performing applications. Enterprises want to transform their testing and virtualization capabilities. Our experts are on the forefront of this transformation providing the knowledge and tools to do so.”
