According to Anil, customers face challenges around high-cost per test, limited storage, server capacity, hardware administration, and production environment problems. They have to depend on third-party back-end or production systems to reduce the total cost of ownership for quality and performance testing. Cavisson’s understand their customers’ viewpoints by ensuring the system that handles expected user load and response time experienced by real user within service level agreements. It also ensures availability by stress testing the system to understand capacity limits, overload the behaviour, optimize critical components and remove bottlenecks by conducting performance analysis. The company is focused on its technological advancements and innovations around customer experience, as well as business parameters that directly impact revenue and operating costs.

Cavisson offers end-end Performance Engineering, Monitoring and Diagnostics as one comprehensive solution on both on- premise and SaaS platforms. This one end-end comprehensive solution offers horizontal drill down, detect anomalies and provide unified dashboard. Cavisson’s proprietary True Internet and Key- Data capabilities enables true-production like simulation to solve complex business problems. They have created an end-to-end, full stack offering in the performance engineering space, which no other company offers today. Their current offering is segmented in two domains – Testing, & Monitoring & Diagnostics. The company ensures maximum availability & reliability of mission critical systems & applications alongside improved business performance – high revenue and low operating costs.

Cavisson was always ahead of its time and had a clear understanding of how the user/customer experience is the primary driver for revenue growth and operational efficiencies.

Cavisson pioneered this concept & named it InternetTrueTM technology. Cavisson also provides a fast, single click root-cause analysis whenever there’s an issue in production. This is achieved by the combination of a proprietary big data engine that captures data from all parts of the enterprise services & several high-performance computing algorithms that perform complex computations on the data in real-time. Anil states, “This is in turn combined with optimized machine learning algorithms for analyzing trends to do anomaly detection. We call this our Key DataTM technology.”

Cavisson’s product suite assist organizations in the creation of this performance tests that represent real-life situations. It provides a real-life measure of customer experience via extremely realistic emulations of the load model and numerous significant parameters that impact including traffic behaviour, exact production transactions, network and bandwidth constraints, & user behavioural patterns such as click-away’s & reloads when reaction times are slow, among others. Cavisson is the only solution provider in the world today that offers end-to-end monitoring and diagnostics solutions. Its products, NetDiagnostics, NetVision & NetForest, are designed to seamlessly integrate with each other to offer a 360-degree view of an enterprise as well as customer & user monitoring.
