1 more thing to be excited about HP TruClient – a beta opportunity!

I sure hope that you’ve heard about the great innovation in HP TruClient, which is one of the G8480103022008_SmallJPG.jpgprotocols supported in HPLoadRunner 11 and  HP Performance Center 11.  We realized the challenges that many of you face when creating load testing scripts for modern web applications, where there are significant client side scripts.  The feedback and response to TruClient has been remarkable, and we’ve continued to innovate and extend the TruClient technology.  Now, we’re at a point, that we are ready to start beta testing the next release of TruClient, which will support IE 9.  Many of you have asked us about MS Internet Explorer support, and we’re very close to done


If you don’t know what TruClient is, then you can watch this short movie : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cR8-3DRE2zo . Up until now, it only supported the Firefox browser. 

Two new voices joining the discussion

As new members of this community, we want to take a few minutes to introduce ourselves and let you know about what we’re working on.  We hope to bring two new voices and perspectives to the community and to best serve your needs.   Let me have Silvia Siqueira introduce herself:

”First of all it is a pleasure to be part of the PC/LR Blog community. It is very exciting for me to share my experience and most important learn from you, your IT challenges and solutions. 

About me, I am originally from Brazil, Sao Paulo. The largest business city in South America and my first language is Portuguese – As I would say, “Prazer em conhece-los” – which means “Nice to meet you”  

Before joining the Performance Center /LoadRunner team I was part of the HP Governance, Strategy and Planning solutions team working a Product Marketing Manager. The last 20 years I worked in many IT areas: Strategy, Applications and Operations which gave me a flavor in how IT must perform to be successful. My specialty is IT Service Management (ITIL) and Application Lifecycle Management. I am sure we have a lot to chat!

Looking forward for joining your journey for success!” Silvia Siqueira


John Jeremiah – I have over 15 years of 20 years of IT experience ranging from application developer to project manager and senior IT leadership roles.   At HP, I most recently worked on PPM product marketing, and will be focusing on Performance Center and how performance testing is an enterprise endeavor.  john.jeremiah@hp.com


We recently asked for your input about what you want out of this space and are planning to try to make some adjustments (more on that later).   For now, our main focus is to try to crate interesting and useful content that will help you with your performance and load testing challenges.  Specifically, we’re planning to:


-       Have more posts that address “How To” questions and best practices

-       Encourage interaction and discussion

-       Some product announcements

-       More success stories and insight about keys to success.


We’re both excited to be here and are always open to feedback and discussion, so feel free to add comments to blog posts or contact us via email.  whichever works for you.
