Oro is very excited to announce its gold-level partnership with Blackfire (the company behind Blackfire.io), a performance management solution. As a company that develops and implements enterprise level business applications, Oro views Blackfire as a key strategic partner as we continue building a close relationship with the Blackfire team.
Our own development team uses Blackfire as the go-to tool to improve performance for our open source business applications: OroCRM, OroPlatform and OroCommerce. Blackfire’s profiler is priceless for our development efforts with its ease of use, ability to pinpoint bottlenecks, and critical reporting capabilities indicating how much memory was used or the time it took for each class method to execute. One of the most useful and important improvements provided by Blackfire is the ability for developers to compare pages before and after code optimizations are implemented. These capabilities have enabled our developers to stay on track and improve the performance of our implementation projects by 30%-40%.
“Performance profiling and optimization was always challenging for teams that are working on complex web applications, but not anymore. With Blackfire.io, our company has all the right tools to profile any part of the application, integrate performance testing in the CI process, and compare results over time. Many thanks to the Blackfire team for providing a great product that was easy to use and setup,” said Dima Soroka, CTO at Oro Inc.
Our work in optimizing our application has become so much easier and the positive results are directly translating into customer benefits. We are looking forward to strengthening our partnership with Blackfire and using their great tools to ensure high performance of our applications.
