The best laid plans can go awry
In business, as in life, even the best laid plans can go
awry. You may have the best software architects and
developers working on your project, but nothing can
prepare you for the reality of running your business
with real customers, and the problems that may arise.
Over a systems lifetime it will be stretched to its
limits: server, network and client bottlenecks;
traffic throughput and volume overload; hardware
limits and software weak spots: you name it,
they're all issues that can put your business at risk.

The implications can be huge
The implications of software failing to perform to specification can be huge – loss of reputation
and loss of customer loyalty leading to lost revenues.Your business will stand or fall based on
whether you are ready to meet head-on the challenges of running your operations in real-time.
StarBase is your first defence against software performance problems. We offer a full
performance test of your software utilising a dedicated team of consultants to identify potential
problems and ultimately help you to be launch-ready. We utilise our understanding of client
objectives, skilled project management and close analysis to deliver outcomes that you
can rely on.
The solution is easy enough: deal with nasty surprises by performance testing before going live.
Often known as stress testing, volume testing or load testing, performance testing simulates the
rigours of post-launch operation at the pre-launch stage. Our tests are truly representative of the
complex demands of real users - delivering consistent, repeatable and measurable results.
