About Us

Our Story

With its Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, Finnish startup Devaten (erstwhile mySuperMon) takes a novel and unique approach to improving database application performance early during software development. The solution was cooked up when this business idea was brought to Turku Business Region’s Business Up startup accelerator programme in 2018. The aim was to commercialize a set of tools and technologies that had been developed since Devaten set out to advise software application developers a few years prior.

Unlike most testing tools, rather than benchmarking overall database performance during set periods of time, Devaten looks at specific use cases. It analyzes and stores performance metrics from all executed test use cases and shows them on a dashboard for each case.

If there is a difference compared to the baseline execution, an alarm is raised. Devaten also shows a performance history of different test use cases and provides data to assist in analysis and performance improvements for the application under development.

Mikko Larkela

Founder & CEO

Before becoming an entrepreneur, Larkela used to work at a leading Finnish digital services and software firm, testing large database applications for clients in the financial services and healthcare sectors. He would test new software versions for performance just before delivery to those clients. One of the things that surprised him was how often new releases had to be returned after testing – or even after roll-out – causing delays in project deliveries as well as reclamations. He figured that, ideally, performance monitoring should happen earlier in the development process, and that it should be done differently.
