SilkPerformer is a cost-effective, enterprise-class performance testing solution for optimizing the performance of business apps. SilkPerformer enables performance tests that accurately simulate peak demand loads and isolate performance bottlenecks.
Performance testing has always been about ensuring the scalability of a software application. Until the arrival of the first performance test automation solutions in the late 90’s, performance testing was a manual process that was difficult, if not impossible, to test in a consistent and reliable fashion.
The arrival of these new tool sets suddenly allowed software testers to turn discrete user actions into scripts that could be combined and replayed as test scenarios. Solving the consistency and reliability challenge, software testers could now repeat the same test on demand while reinforcing and imposing some new requirements.
The functional software test automation market is a subsegment of the overall software test tools market (which also includes test planning, performance testing, test data management and other functions). Functional test automation focuses on the automation of tests in a way that simulates the way a real user would interact with an application — by driving the user interface (UI). They can also look at other functional aspects of an application such as testing APIs. In this Magic Quadrant, we focus on the UI automation facilities of tools, because according to our client interactions this appears to be the area of greatest need.
