Stress testing (load/performance) to the online enroll system with Laureate
Given the isolation we are experiencing and the change towards a distance education model, online platforms are becoming increasingly important as part of the key systems of companies. Because of this, for Laureate, the processes of enrollment and payment must be able to cope with peaks in use without presenting problems for students and administrative/operational/system staff.
The enrollment process involves a large number of variables and factors such as availability of schedules, groups and academic status of students that are updated in real time as the process is fed. Even when all the conditions are met for a student to enroll in a subject, it is possible that at the time of applying to the server the conditions have changed, so it is not possible to always send the same requests in the performance test, it must be dynamic
In addition, the login process is managed by a third party and windows of opportunity for testing in production environments are very limited.
For Laureate, it will be possible to validate the performance of the re-enrollment process for each school year, which will also be done with less effort thanks to NeoLoad’s versatility in updating scripts in a very short time. This guarantees a good user experience for students and reduces the operational tasks of performing these processes manually or in person.
