Press Release

Keynote Transaction Perspective 9.0 Now Available

Support for Monitoring Interactive Flash and Silverlight Web Applications

Keynote Systems, a provider of on-demand mobile and Internet test & measurement solutions for continuously improving the online experience, today announced that Keynote Transaction Perspective® 9.0 is now generally available to all Keynote customers.

Transaction Perspective 9.0 is a much enhanced version of the company’s market-leading on demand Web site monitoring service specifically designed for the ‘Next Web’ applications of today and tomorrow. The industry leading features include groundbreaking support for interactive Flash and Silverlight, composite Web transactions and 3rd party online ad tracking. Transaction Perspective 9.0 distinguishes itself as the industry’s only Web monitoring solution built on an actual Internet Explorer browser combined with the world’s largest global test and measurement network.

“The Next Web is being built with Rich Internet Applications that increasingly use large Interactive Flash and Silverlight components as prominent parts of Web sites. But until now they have remained very much a black box in terms of end user performance - we’ve changed that with the delivery of this version. We’re very proud of this release and thrilled that Keynote customers can now take full advantage of all the powerful new features 9.0 offers,” said Vik Chaudhary, vice president of product management and corporate development at Keynote.

Solving ‘Next Web’ Performance Challenges with Screen Sensing Technology

Transaction Perspective 9.0, with groundbreaking Keynote Screen Sensing Technology™, delivers precise and accurate measurement, from the end user perspective, into the performance of Web applications that use Interactive Flash and Silverlight technologies.

Keynote Screen Sensing Technology tracks the full variety of Interactive Flash and Silverlight features such as hover-over effects, action buttons, drop-down menus and text entry – a first for Web performance monitoring solutions.

Interactive Flash and Silverlight-based applications are just two potential components of a Web site transaction in the ‘Next Web’ environment. When a user makes a hotel reservation, orders an item of clothing or watches a sports highlight, there are many interaction steps with different Web 2.0 components such as Ajax and JavaScript. These composite Web transactions seamlessly integrate content from multiple sources into one single combined transaction and are extremely complex to test for end user performance. With Transaction Perspective 9.0 Web operations groups will be able to easily dissemble complex composite Web transactions to understand the real performance impact on end users of the newest Web 2.0 technologies.

Effortlessly Monitor 3rd Party Content and Components with Keynote Virtual Pages

Sourcing Web site content from a 3rd party has become increasingly prevalent with examples such as online ad networks, Content Distribution Networks (CDNs), partner hosted content and content hosted by other internal groups. The new ‘virtual pages’ feature of Transaction Perspective 9.0 supports easy grouping and isolating of Web components by any criteria, allowing Web operations personnel to hold other content owners accountable with tailored monitoring statistics, SLAs and alarms. All of the same power and functionality of the reporting portal for standard Transaction Perspective measurements can also be applied to third-party component monitoring.
