SOASTA announced today enhancements to its Digital Performance Management (DPM) Platform to better support digital business IT operations and developers.

The Spring 2016 Release features advancements in front-end web and mobile performance optimization and support for popular open source tools and frameworks, including JMeter.

“With the rising challenge to deliver a positive customer experience, the CIO organization must develop a prioritized to-do list to thrive in this rapidly changing environment,” explained SOASTA CEO Tom Lounibos. “By analyzing performance metrics in the context of the user’s experience and business impact, SOASTA enables IT teams to prioritize and solve problems directly impacting their users, helping organizations save valuable time and resources.”

He added, “Our focus with the spring release is to meet the evolving needs of IT operations and developers, delivering performance data and efficiency. This product release offers capabilities that improve the way IT Ops and DevOps teams develop, manage and monitor critical apps and services. These enhancements address the top performance challenges faced by companies today and illustrate our ongoing commitment to DPM leadership.”

SOASTA mPulse highlights include:

- Comprehensive Single Page Apps (SPA) real-user monitoring (RUM) capability with added support for the React framework, in addition to AngularJS, Ember.js and Backbone.js.

- Support for Google Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), critical to current customers moving to AMP but wanting to continue using mPulse.

- External solution integration with key partners and best-in-breed tools, including Rigor’s synthetic monitoring and optimization platform and Dynatrace’s APM, allowing users to pull Dynatrace APM data into mPulse. With synthetic results and RUM data correlated, a full end-to-end view of performance is provided.

SOASTA’s CloudTest platform, a proven provider of real-time analytics for in-production testing, now supports:

- Testing using JMeter scripts at scale, with real-time analytics, unmatched geographic distribution of test servers, and real-time control that no open source or commercial competitor solution can match.

- Most complete network emulation feature for accurate performance tests which take into account network characteristics such as latency, jitter and lost packets. In addition, SOASTA’s network emulation feature allows testers to more accurately simulate real-world network conditions. The result is total insight into how networks affect performance, with the industry’s deepest real-time analytics to provide guidance on “what do we need to do next?”

- Both CloudTest and TouchTest now support version control with integration to Git and Git-compatible version control systems. With the new release, users can secure and track all changes to testing assets so that teams can make changes and stay in sync with the latest versions and even reverse a change if needed.

The SOASTA Spring 2016 Release is now available to all SOASTA customers.
