Apica announced a new partnership with Swedish consulting firm C.A.G Senseus in a joint effort to offer web application performance testing to Swedish customers.

“Here at C.A.G Senseus we have in-depth knowledge of test automation and test design, and we are now increasing our scope of practice to include performance testing”, says Tommi Uurtonen, Head of Consulting at C.A.G Senseus. “We can see how more and more people are realizing the importance of performance testing and we have noticed an increased need in that area looking at both our customers as well as external players.”

The partner agreement means that Apica will provide and develop the tools that enable the process of setting up performance tests. C.A.G Senseus will integrate and implement the tests for the customer and help analyze and specify requirements to ensure quality outcome. The performance tests will be integrated in the existing delivery process and become a natural and continuous part of quality assurance.

“It is fairly easy getting started with performance testing, the difficulty usually lays in the execution. You need to have an extensive knowledge of many factors within testing to know what to include and focus on to achieve reliable results” commented Apica’s CEO Sven Hammar.

“Partnering with Apica allows us to work with a great product that is user friendly, and a competent partner we can exchange knowledge with and share customers with“, says Tommi.

Sven Hammar, CEO at Apica, sees the partnership as a great way for both companies to broaden their customer base:

“C.A.G’s strength is their wide network and great customer relationships within testing. With the knowledge they have the bridge over to performance testing is not difficult to cross”, Sven says. “In the long perspective we hope that the collaboration can be extended to other companies within the C.A.G group that are also working with the performance of business critical systems.”

The partnership was initiated end of last year and will initially be focused around competence development. The next step will be to develop the collaboration within a number of different projects.
