Mark Gurry & Associates (MGA): Pioneers in Performance Load Testing and Tuning
The ever-evolving need for enterprises to streamline their workflows to enhance performance ultimately impels them to deploy advanced IT solutions with low response time, fast throughput, and robustness. However, they often fail to attain the desired results even after implementing set technical tests, adversely affecting their top-line growth. Such issues, can often be addressed through expert tuning although, at times, systems may require a re-architecture or major re-design. However, only a small percentage of businesses perform adequate technical testing due to insufficient budget, resources, and skill to perform a comprehensive end-to-end load test. Established to remediate these setbacks, Mark Gurry & Associates (MGA), a boutique IT Consulting Company, delivers advanced load testing and tuning solutions to enable business entities to enhance their systems’ overall performance, often bypassing the need for system rebuild. “We have the strong technical expertise and long-standing experience in performance load testing and tuning with a 100 percent success rate across a wide range of business systems,” says Mark Gurry, CEO of MGA.
As Gurry points out, constraints to performing tests within a tight timeframe and tracking data transfer across numerous systems and transactions are snowballing as setbacks in the technical testing. MGA realizes that the need to extrapolate results due to the unavailability of production-sized hardware, often, hampers testing.
To end this, MGA designs their solutions to deliver comprehensive end-to-end load testing of all transactions. The firm, by leveraging their best-of-the-breed product, EagleEye, ensures that all aspects of infrastructure, application, web servers, application servers, network, and databases provide acceptable performance.
The performance knowledge base within MGA’s robust toolset allows you to quickly identify and repair potential issues in the early stages of the testing life cycle. This knowledge base, which is the key ingredient of their toolset, provides monitoring, alerting, and expert advice on a wide range of infrastructure, databases, and products, thus ensuring that bottlenecks are quickly identified and mitigated.
As a globally known high-quality performance testing and tuning company, MGA has strong knowledge in applications of SAP, Oracle E*Business, JDE, Itron, PeopleSoft, Webmethods, Weblogic, and PeopleSoft, to name a few. The company also enables migration of data either to the cloud or to other databases, including Oracle to SQL Server, Postgres, MySQL, MongoDB to name a few.With such a comprehensive thread of expertise, MGA has successfully tuned systems including that of banks, stock exchanges, utilities, and other complex sites.
Identifying the potential of MGA’s robust tools, several big-name international IT consulting companies across the US, the UK, Malaysia, and Australia partner with them to identify and eliminate low-performance risks and enhance their clients system’s efficiency. Gurry recalls the firm’s engagement with a large utility company who wanted major functional changes to SAP ISU, SAP ERP, Business Objects, Bespoke Consumer Portal, Itron IEE, Web methods, Cognos and Control M batch scheduling to align with new government regulations. A complex requirement indeed! MGA successfully tested the new infrastructure, operating system, and upgraded database versions and tuned the performance issues to give them the best chance to run at its best. All aspects of the application, including online screens, integration transactions, reports, and batch jobs were also comprehensively load tested. This provided assurance to the client that the system will perform well at “Go Live” and remain scalable in the future.
The business confidence attained from several such success stories inspires MGA to plot its growth trajectory in tune to evolving market demands.
