by | June 14, 2011

VELOCITY 2011, Santa Clara, Calif. – June 14, 2011 – Apica, a leading European load testing and performance-monitoring provider for cloud and mobile applications, today announced a new opportunity for prospects worldwide to evaluate the recently launched Apica Watch service via a new 30 day free trial offer.

Apica Watch is a cloud service with full support for Selenium that gives subscribers the ability to monitor their websites from a true-end user perspective and get immediate results. Apica’s technology is being demonstrated at booth #314 at Velocity 2011.

Selenium is the popular open source software testing framework for web applications that lets customers generate, create and run scripts representing complex user scenarios, such as logging in, searching, making travel reservations and completing purchases online. Users can create test scripts using Selenium, and upload and seamlessly reuse them in Apica Watch to monitor applications globally. Uniquely, the Apica Watch service visually “documents” the executed script, taking screen shots along the way, leaving web operations staff with a full graphical account of how the application performed.

This announcement comes on the heels of Apica’s U.S. market debut on June 1, when Apica Watch was launched. The free trial can be accessed at:


Apica’s CEO Sven Hammar will conduct a live presentation and performance monitoring technology demonstration at 1pm PT on Wednesday, June 15, in Room 203. Attendees will learn how to leverage the latest load testing techniques to improve overall performance monitoring strategy. Hammar will demonstrate how to work with Selenium scripting, utilizing the latest tools and expertise that result in “rapid, actionable insight” to minimize performance issues and allow users to save time and money. Attendees will learn how to implement simple techniques that can help prevent a site from becoming the next bad Web story, as well gaining knowledge about the interrelationship of application performance monitoring and performance testing.
