Bringing Value to the Organization With Performance Testing Michael Lawler
About the Topic
What is required to successfully integrate performance testing into your organization? Rigorous performance testing of your critical applications will help to identify and correct system bottlenecks before going to production. This results in a more stable system with less production downtime. The goal of performance testing is to identify and resolve infrastructure issues. As an additional benefit, performance testing can also provide the opportunity to identify defects otherwise impossible to detect with functional testing alone. Performance testing can be very expensive, though, without an effective approach. Case studies from several successful performance testing efforts will be explored in this session. You will learn to recognize the potential pitfalls of performance testing in your organization and you will examine possible options to ensure effective performance tests. Areas discussed will include the performance testing environment, test planning, automated tool application, test execution, and results analysis.
