Neotys develops software test and monitoring tools to improve the quality and performance of information systems; its flagship solution, NeoLoad, tests the performance of web applications using customizable scenarios for load and stress. Neotys is a privately owned company.


Neotys was founded in 2005 by a group of software developers and IT project managers who recognized demand for a new software solution to test the performance of web applications prior to launch. Since then Neotys has delivered software solutions to more than 800 clients in 60 countries, with exports accounting for more than 75% of the company's annual turnover. Early in 2007,[1] Neotys received the "Young Innovating Enterprise" award, issued by the Ministry of Research and supported by OSEO Anvar, the French national organization promoting research. Neotys supports its continued development by expanding its business around the world.

In November 2009, the first prize Créa13 given by the General Council of Bouches-du-Rhône, in partnership with Eurocopter, was awarded to Neotys.[2]

Neotys won the "Tool Challenge" award at the Vienna Software Quality Days 2010 ("Best Quality Tool Award 2010" for NeoLoad application).[3]

Neotys is included in the report entitled "The Testing Tools Landscape: 2010" from Forrester Research, Inc and is described by Gartner among the vendors representing the cloud testing tool market broadly.[4]

Product and solutions[edit]

NeoLoad is a load and stress testing tool designed to measure the performance of web and RIA applications. It works by simulating traffic up to thousands of users in order to determine how the application performs under load. It provides various analyses, i.e., response times, number of simultaneous users, server activity, etc., to provide insight into where bottlenecks may exist.

The objective is to identify problems early in order to optimize the performance and quality of the application before it goes into production.
