Topeka, Kansas, 10 June 2015 – Cambridge Technology Enterprises (CTE), an IT services leader focused on the convergence of big data and cloud, today announced its partnership with Apica Systems, a leading provider of monitoring and load testing software. The distribution partnership agreement includes the resale of Apica Solutions and the wide collaboration in marketing, distribution and implementation related matters.
Apica provides the most effective technology for optimizing the performance of cloud and mobile applications. Apica Systems is an Amazon Web Services (AWS) technology partner and is renowned within the AWS ecosystem.
“When moving to the cloud, IT staff often find that applications cannot always utilize a cloud environment as they should, and cloud infrastructure scalability doesn’t automatically eliminate application performance problems,” says Peter Tollgård, COO of Apica. “Adequate testing is necessary to ensure an application will function as it should. We look forward to helping CTE customers better manage and optimize their cloud transitions.”
CTE has gained substantial expertise in migrating applications to a cloud infrastructure like AWS. For the migration of non-mission critical applications to the set-up of high performance production systems, performance monitoring and load testing is frequently required to ensure that slow load times, bottlenecks, and full-blown website failures are avoided. If not adequately tested, the issues can occur frequently and unexpectedly, resulting in high bounce rates, low revenue and damaged reputations.
“The partnership with Apica is important to us, as it will enhance CTE’s Application Testing capabilities”, says Aashish Kalra, Chairman of CTE. “For many of our customers, a cost-effective load testing capability is critical, particularly when launching cloud based SaaS solutions with spiking traffic. Partnering with Apica will help our customers simulate real-time mobile and web browser workload experiences”.
