Company: Windsor Life, Insurance
Windsor Life has an in-house application that currently supports 250 users, that uses a Visual Basic front-end to access information stored on an underlying Oracle 8 database. Windsor Life anticipated that the application user population would rise from 250 to 800 in the near future, and a database upgrade to Oracle 10g was in the pipeline.
Windsor Life enlisted AC to validate that their application was robust at 800 users, and to help ensure that the migration to a new infrastructure and database led to no performance degradation.
Windsor Life selected AC because of AC's valuable experience in performance testing. AC carried out the performance testing on the Windsor Life application and managed the Oracle upgrade, to time and to budget.
