Customer Success Story - Business Services
Many companies today find it more cost-effective to purchase application packages than to develop them in-house. One leading Business Service provider has developed a package that handles all processing for car dealerships, from sales management to lead tracking, inventory control, parts management and financing. This package had been developed with Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS) software, and since it had been acquired from another company, came without source code.
Only AppMetrics® for Transactions, by Xtremesoft could test for problems and bottlenecks and thereby maximize performance.
Testing applications: searching for a needle in a haystack
State-of-the-art applications demand maximized performance from the underlying transaction software. The MTS-developed application had some performance issues and the company had no way to identify the problem. AppMetrics for Transactions enabled the company to pinpoint the problem modules, without access to the source code and to remedy the issues quickly.
Working closely with Microsoft, Xtremesoft developed its AppMetrics for Transactions to monitor the health of MTS and COM+ based applications. The product is designed to be used during either the development or the production phase. This Company resolved the application issues during testing in the development phase.
