Peak District Consultancy Application Performance Assessment

Applications written for use with local file or application servers often perform badly when deployed across a wide area network link. This may even be true of the link capacity is large. At NCA we have the experience in analysing applications and assessing their suitability for deployment in the new environment. . We can also provide advice on how the applications may be altered to work in this new environment. By analysing an application before it is deployed it is possible to avoid potentially costly changes later.
