Partnering very smart testing tools with very smart Consultants:

Through its automated integration testing – below the GUI – and virtualisation capabilities, IBM’s Rational Green Hat technology accelerates testing and moves error detection to earlier in the software development life cycle: together this enhances coverage and confidence. Virtualisation enables earlier and continuous functional and performance testing, de-risking delivery and lowering cost.

Those best placed to take advantage of the benefits of this solution will be clients with a complex heterogeneous technology landscape – lots of different systems talking to one another via integration technologies such as WebSphere MQ, SAP PI, Tibco, JMS, wM, web services – to provide the functionality required by users and a strong business need to better manage complex testing environments.

StarBase, the UK’s leading specialist performance testing consultancy recently engaged with a Global Investment Bank to support delivery of an application processing 4,000 transactions per second, with the ability to track and report on any one of 14 million individual Futures & Options trades per hour across a global network in real time.

Take a look at our short presentation about the tool we used, IBM Rational Green Hat and our case study evidencing real world success.
