What is Synthetic Testing?

Synthetic testing, also referred to as continuous monitoring or synthetic monitoring, is a technique for identifying performance problems with critical user journeys and application endpoints before they impair the user experience. Businesses may use synthetic testing to assess the uptime of their services, application response times, and the efficiency of consumer transactions on a proactive basis.


Introducing Atatus Synthetic Monitoring

A high-performance customer experience might spell the difference between business success and failure in today's always-on, competitive digital economy. However, in today's complex application environment, ensuring optimal performance across digital services and applications has become increasingly difficult. As a result, application performance management (APM) must adapt to provide real-time visibility into the application landscape and to reveal precisely what is affecting user experiences.


Optimize your end user experience with a synthetic monitoring strategy

The digitalization of the end user experience is leading to increasingly rapid changes for both customers and business owners alike. Customers demand and depend on fast, reliable web services whether for informational purposes or to conduct e-commerce transactions. That’s why regardless of the device that is used, slow digital experiences aren’t easily forgiven. If they happen often enough, they will reflect poorly on your brand and will eventually impact your bottom line.


What is Synthetic Monitoring and Why is it Important for Your Business

As a business, whichever industry you are in, there is a fair chance that you depend upon online assets such as mobile applications or API’s for conducting operations. Assuming that one wants to ensure their availability, correct functioning and quick response at all times, it is important to use synthetic monitoring for better customer experience.

Synthetic Transactions and Monitoring in Testing

Monitoring is a must-have for any serious application. You can’t hope to run a highly available system if you don’t have real-time information about its state. In this day and age, it’s almost negligent to forsake this cross-functional requirement. Monitoring has many facets that can be covered by using slightly different tools. Some of these tools focus specifically on technical aspects. One example is the state of the infrastructure or the errors observed in a microservice.
