.NET Application Performance Consultation Services

ICG Performance Graphic

Performance and stability are the two most important elements to achieving a great user experience (UX). If a site or application is internal, it directly impacts productivity and employee satisfaction. If it is public-facing, then the performance of your application has to compete as much as the product or service you sell.

In addition to helping customer build successful applications from day one, we have helped hundreds of organizations improve performance and maintain satisfaction as the number of users and size of the database grow over time. Using a variety of third-party and home-grown utilities and tools we can pinpoint areas of low application performance from resource utilization to query optimization and beyond.

But our success comes from more than just the right technology tools. It comes from decades of experience helping our customers strike just the right balance to make sure that they technology project continues to be a success.

Memory Profiling

One of the most problematic and common performance bottlenecks involves memory utilization. Core system memory utilization is one of the four basic components of a computing system. Nothing moves without it. How and when applications store, process, retrieve, and manage this memory is vital, and even small dis-optimizations can cause “leaks” that impact performance … sometimes slowly at first, sometimes dramatically.

No one is better at trouble-shooting, identifying, and documenting memory issues than we are. And it is common for an under-performing application to achieve performance increase upwards of 50% while streamlining the application footprint when we are through.

CPU / Performance Profiling

Even a well-built application can slow over time. Databases grow, complexity increases, and development best-practices are updated. Using the latest, professional .NET tools available we can deep-dive into your application processes and behaviors … drilling down into individual lines of code. Using this process we can quickly pinpoint performance bottlenecks and areas that are prime for optimization.

Code Quality Review

Sometimes a fresh set of eyes makes all the difference. Bring us in during a current project review or to help analyze an existing application against Microsoft and industry best practices for development. We can perform one-time or regularly-scheduled reviews and, more importantly, communicate what we find to your team. We believe that sharing our knowledge and experience is an important part of the service we provide. Not only will your application get better, but the whole team will benefit as quality and processes improve.
