DETROIT, April 12, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Gomez, the Web performance division of Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), today introduced the industry’s first solution for testing how entire Web sites perform and render on the Apple iPad. The service is part of Gomez’s “One Web” performance testing and monitoring capabilities that help developers and IT operations teams find, diagnose and fix application performance issues whether they are mobile-specific, Web-specific or both.
With iPad use expected to grow rapidly, many businesses are developing mobile Web sites and applications to ensure that their brands and services are available to increasing numbers of device owners. Organizations need to know if their Web sites perform and render properly on the iPad in order to meet users’ increasing expectations for speed and performance. Failure to meet these performance expectations can result in lost customers and damaged brand equity.
Completely automated, self-service and on-demand, Gomez’s cross-browser and device testing solution now supports the iPad. This allows organizations to test how the pages of their Web sites render on the iPad, whether the sites are live or in development. Automating the process means developers can more swiftly find and correct performance and rendering issues like missing or misplaced graphics, buttons and text. Gomez’s real-user performance monitoring, which also now supports the iPad, provides businesses with detailed Web performance analytics so they can track iPad performance metrics and address any issues that may impact their business.
“Devices like the iPad can affect the way content appears and functions, which impacts the end-user’s Web experience,” said Imad Mouline, CTO of Gomez. “Any organization that is building a Web presence needs to quickly understand how existing and new applications will look and perform on the iPad in order to deliver quality web experience to all customers, wherever they are located and however they connect to the Internet.”
Support for Apple’s iPad is immediately available in the Gomez platform at no additional charge.
