For the past few weeks, I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with and learning from the new Performance Center Product Manager – Gurmeen Aneja. Her extensive experience in the field, working with Performance Center customers, gives her a deep understanding about the PC customer’s unique challenges and needs. She’ll be actively blogging here soon, but for now, I want to welcome her to the community and encourage you to reach out to her if you have any questions.
One of the things that she and I were talking about recently was how to make more people aware of the My PC user interface. As you know, with PC version 11.00, PC and ALM share a common platform, enabling users to harness the power of ALM when planning and managing all their testing activities. However, we realize that not all performance testing teams were ready to fully leverage ALM, and needed a streamlined interface into the core PC capabilities. We call this streamlined interface – “My PC”.
- Monitor the status of PC through different “Perspectives” (think dashboards) that are configurable to meet your specific needs. There are a handful of prebuilt “Perspectives” that are ready to go when you start up My PC, but you can always configure and create your own.
- Create, Edit and Execute Performance Tests. Of course you need to monitor the PC environment, but you really are there to run load tests. With My PC, you can get your testing done, with a direct and simple user interface.
- Review Testing results and reports.
- Stay connected with what is happening in the PC environment with notifications

Here’s a link to a short presentation that shows you more about what My PC looks like and how you can start to take advantage of it now!
