Silk testing tools help Dutch firm improve IT performance by 50%

2:35 | Mark van Dorst, Quality Control Specialist, YMOR

A Dutch IT operations analytics company does automated testing with Silk Performer and Silk Mobile, thus ensuring high performance and availability for its clients.


Ymor helps large companies secure and optimize their IT performance, preventing and correcting slowdowns and stoppages. In choosing testing software, Ymor compared four different options and selected Silk tools, citing the software's:

  • Licensing structure
  • User experience
  • Range of enabled protocols

One of Ymor's biggest clients, a Dutch telecom, integrated 17 unique apps into one. Ymor successfully tested the entire environment with Silk Performer, setting up scripts using three different scenarios and parallel testing.

In addition to Silk Performer, Ymor uses Silk Mobile to monitor mobile availability. An open stream automatically tests every 15 minutes to ensure that all systems are performing correctly.

Quality control specialist Mark van Dorst says, "What I like about working with Micro Focus is that they are a pioneer and an enabler in an ever-evolving environment."
