Innovative technical performance engineer solutions delivered by specialists

Background

A major public sector department requested support from Expleo with testing of a critical mapping solution. The system is used extensively to facilitate annual grant applications. The application process is under EU regulation and delays in grant applications could result in considerable fines, meaning application performance is critical.

Expleo were engaged as Software Quality Assurance Partners to support the organisation on its digital transformation programme. Performance Engineering was provided to the client using our On-Demand specialist shared service.
