Talisma Fundraising Application Testing

The load testing application that you select to set up and execute load tests on your Talisma Fundraising set up will ultimately determine whether or not it is your load testing efforts are successful. Selecting the wrong load tester potentially makes load testing painfully expensive and time-consuming operation with limited benefits. On the other hand, selecting the right load testing application can give you critical information that avoids disastrous results for your fundraising efforts.


So what should you look for when investing in a Talisma Fundraising load testing application? Here are some of the most important features that you should look for, along with a description as to why they are important.

1. Protocol Independent

Contrary to what your instincts may be, you do not want to purchase a load testing application with specific protocols. Those protocol dependent load testing applications often times come with extra strings and costs that protocol independent load testing applications do not. They limit what setups you can test your Talisma Fundraising on. They do so without giving you any noticeable benefits and the quality of the testing.

With a protocol independent load testing application, you save on costs and gain in versatility.

2. Ease of Use

One reason why load testing is seen as being so expensive is because many load testing applications are difficult to set up and execute. This means that organizations for a lot of money into consulting fees and paying their team members to run their load tests.

A load testing application that is easy to use means that you get to minimize labor costs, launch your new or updated version of Talisma Fundraising on time, and set up and execute multiple load tests to gauge its ability to perform under multiple levels of stress. This allows you to launch Talisma Fundraising with more confidence in its ability to perform.

3. Tests from the End-User’s Point of View

A load testing application that tests from the end users point of view will give you the most useful results because it shows you what it is like when somebody is actually accessing the application. The data that you get when you test and the end users point of view allows you to make the necessary adjustments to your set up in order to give your users a better experience.

4. Customized Variables of End Users

One of the strengths of Talisma Fundraising is that it allows users to access it virtually from a multitude of browsers and devices. Your load testing should take account of this, and the simulations you create should stress the application with multiple variables.

Look for load testing application that not only allows you to test in the end users point of view but allows you to customize the types of end users in your simulations so that you can account for the different types of users that will actually be using it when it goes live.

5. Easy to Interpret Data

After you execute your load test, you want to be able to take that data and use it either to fix problems in your set up or confirm that it is ready to go live. This is much easier if the load testing application that you select presents its results to you in an easy to interpret format.

There are multiple load testing applications on the market that are compatible with Talisma Fundraising, but one that meets all five of these standards is AppLoader. It is protocol independent, easy-to-use, tests from the end users point of view, gives you all sorts of customization options, and presents results you in easy to interpret charts and graphs.

Because it meets all five these standards, it makes getting the most out of your load testing a whole lot easier. With its help, you can get information that will allow you to better serve your constituents without investing a fortune in labor and capital costs.
