As they had strategically focused on large enterprises as a starting point, they always ran into existing solutions.
We had to very clearly demonstrate our unique value proposition with compelling capabilities to replace those solutions.
The company has seen the growth through word of mouth so far. In most of the situation, companies had challenges, and existing solutions could not address their pain points.
Now, there is significant marketing and sales strategy/ planning, also collaborating with world’s top tier SIs to scale in a big way.
The Products and Services –
We’ve created an end-to-end, full stack offering in the performance engineering space, which no other company offers today.
Their current offering is segmented in two domains – Testing, & Monitoring & Diagnostics. The company ensures maximum availability & reliability of mission critical systems & applications alongside improved business performance – high revenue and low operating costs.
Cavisson was always ahead of its time and had a clear understanding of how the user/customer experience is the primary driver for revenue growth and operational efficiencies. Hence, it is important that the company focuses its technology advancements & innovations around customer experience, as well as business parameters that directly impact revenue & operating costs. This immediately resonates with customers. The team ensures that quality and performance is in the DNA of any system or application right from the dev or pre-pod environment.
Utilizing Cavisson’s advanced cross-discipline simulation techniques, consumers are able to performance test their applications with real production-like situations & repeatable results to guarantee maximum performance once the application goes live. Cavisson pioneered this concept & named it InternetTrueTM technology. Cavisson also provides a fast, single click root-cause analysis whenever there’s an issue in production. This is achieved by the combination of a proprietary big data engine that captures data from all parts of the enterprise services & several high performance computing algorithms that perform complex computations on the data in real-time.
This is in turn combined with optimized machine learning algorithms for analyzing trends to do anomaly detection. We call this our Key DataTM technology.
Cavisson’s product suite assists organizations in the creation of this performance tests that represent real-life situations. It provides a real-life measure of customer experience via extremely realistic emulations of the load model and numerous significant parameters that impact including traffic behavior, exact production transactions, network and bandwidth constraints, & user behavioral patterns such as click-aways& reloads when reaction times are slow, among others. Cavisson is the only solution provider in the world today that offers end-to-end monitoring and diagnostics solutions. Its products, NetDiagnostics, NetVision&NetForest, are designed to seamlessly integrate with each other to offer a 360 degreeview of an enterprise as well as customer & user monitoring.
Cavisson has built unmatched, highly innovative solutions currently used by several Fortune 100 customers worldwide. Its solutions have streamlined these customers’ organizational processes through technological superiority & efficacy.
“We believe that InternetTrueTM& Key DataTM technologies are the future of end-to-end monitoring & diagnostics across application lifecycles & application stacks. Its efficacy is evident from the fact that our solutions have helped solve issues that were not identified by legacy solutions, prompting several Fortune 100 customers to switch to Cavisson,” says Anil.
