Pathways Update : Speedy Gonzalez

We are 8 weeks into our speedy gonzalez project – the aim of which was to make all screens and operations in Pathways complete in under 1500 milliseconds. This means that after click the page will load a second later no matter what you are doing or what data is being presented. So far more than 90% of the screens are actually under 500ms (half a second!) and extra lag is typically a result of the user’s broadband connection (or Youtube addiction)

Using some cutting edge monitoring software we can xray into each page and function and see where things are slowing us down. For example we recently adding our custom lists functionality which allow the dynamic creation of filtered student, host and placement lists for work experience and work placement customers. Having dynamic queries on huge databases can take some time. But using these tools we break down every function and use the information to deliver one thing – FAST web pages. Net outcome? HAPPY customers.
