Shunra Offers Free Mobile Performance Kit Download
The Latest in a Series of Free Advisory Offerings to Improve Application Performance
Shunra, the industry-recognized authority in Application Performance Engineering solutions, today announced the availability of a new addition to its Free Trials and Tools library, the Shunra Mobile Performance Kit.
Because users expect the same application and website performance on their mobile device as on their PCs, and because research shows abandonment rates escalate when response times surpass three seconds, ensuring performance is fundamental to the success of mobile applications. The Shunra Mobile Performance Kit enables reliable performance testing of mobile applications and sites under real world network conditions from any Windows-based PC or laptop. The downloadable kit, now available at http://www.shunra.com/shunra-mobile-performance-kit, is the latest in a series of free offerings provided by Shunra to help empower teams responsible for application performance.
Powered by Shunra’s recently announced vCat 7.0 technology, Shunra’s Mobile Performance Kit provides IT teams with the ability to connect a mobile device via Wi-Fi to a PC and then impair that connection to emulate real-world network conditions. As a result, performance engineers, developers and IT personnel can proactively test and analyze mobile application performance before deployment, thereby avoiding costly production problems.
“Simply put, the way that most organizations develop, test, launch and monitor applications for performance is broken,” said Shunra COO Bill Varga. “With the free Mobile Performance Kit, we are allowing individuals responsible for ensuring application performance and deployment success the ability to very quickly get a reading on how their site or application will perform across the varying conditions inherent to mobile and web networks.”
According to industry research, fixing a problem after an application is deployed can cost up to 100-times more than doing so early in the development lifecycle. Shunra’s Mobile Performance Test kit enables mobile application developers to start thinking differently about how and when they test in order to deliver better user experiences. At the same time, organizations benefit from more reliable testing data, reduced remediation costs and the ability to deploy technical resources more efficiently.
“Research reveals that users will begin to abandon a mobile site or application if it takes more than three seconds to load,” Varga added. “In order to ensure improved user experiences and confidence in application performance, businesses need to start treating performance testing as equal in importance to functional and security testing.”
