Load Testing Tool

Facilita, the UK’s leading developer of performance testing products, has announced the appointment of Gareth Heaton as UK Sales Manager. This role encompasses responsibility for Facilita’s UK sales operation and expansion into Europe.

Facilita’s MD spoke very highly of Gareth Heaton’s skills and experience; “We are delighted to welcome Gareth into his new role. One of Gareth's main strengths is the understanding he has of the global software market and customer needs. Prior to joining Facilita, Gareth held a very successful career at HP Software after the company acquired Mercury Interactive, considered to be the leader of the global business technology optimization market. During his career within that enterprise-level global software company, Gareth successfully demonstrated major over-achievement in several commercial roles over the past 8 years,” Gordon enthused.

Facilita develops enterprise-level IT performance and load testing tools alongside bespoke software testing solutions for a wide variety of major corporations and government institutions.

One of Facilita’s performance testing applications is Forecast, a powerful and flexible load and stress testing toolset. Facilita’s application testing tool, Forecast, easily and accurately tests performance and scalability by simulating hundreds to thousands of concurrent users, enabling the end-to-end performance of an application or system to be evaluated by applying consistent, measurable and repeatable loads.

Automated testing tools

If you are interested in software testing tools then there is a new report out which provides an annual teview of the automated test tool market and can be purchased here.

After several years of stagnation and distraction, the major testing tool vendors made substantial progress in 2007 and early 2008 in adding capabilities to their products that really matter to testers. Finally, there is renewed focus on giving testers better tools to use at all stages of the lifecycle. The vendors have come down from the lofty heights of selling a grand design for automating IT management across the board to concentrate on more pressing needs, such as service-oriented architecture (SOA) testing, application security testing and a less all-encompassing IT management vision – quality management. After years of confining test automation to late lifecycle QA team testing, new requirements in the marketplace have encouraged the vendors to broaden the reach of test automation. The signs are that even better things will appear in the rest of 2008 and 2009.
