Come and visit the Microfocus Summit in Düsseldorf on 20.-21.June 2017. I will talk about fast and reliable software on 21.June 11:00 am. Registration, agenda and more details under this link. […]
Over the past decade companies, large and small have started with the integration of load and performance testing into their development process. There are many good reasons for this evolution. In this post will outline why testing of performance requirements has become so popular.
The best way to avoid bad user experience is to integrate load and performance testing in your development process. In this post, I will shine a light on the necessary steps involved which you can use right away in your next performance test project.
In recent years, static websites completely disappeared and with the rise of technology, companies provide their services more and more online. The former latent web pages were replaced with content-rich and dynamic websites. Frequent changes in content and website layout can have a high impact on end to end response times.
In this post, I will give you a simple approach how to implement an automated web page design analysis based on open source tools PhantomJS and Yslow.
Small things matter most, and this is not only true for day to day activities. Minor changes in application configuration can have a significant impact on end to end user experience. In this post, I will give you insights into the nature of such changes and some simple steps towards proactive detection of speed degradations.
Performance testing is meanwhile a fundamental step in many software development projects. Test early and repeat often is also true for load and performance testing. It’s not a one-time shot and there are some pitfalls involved. In this post, I will outline the three most frequently used performance test varieties.
Testing and Monitoring platforms provide a broad range of user simulation methods such as protocol, headless, and real browser-based. In this post, I will outline the main aspects of those followed by a comparison matrix […]
Digital services are eating the world. Billions of websites provide almost everything you can image, and the competition is on the rise. End users are more and more in the driving seat because they decide what service they will use. Digital customers often ban services which provide a bad user experience. Therefore, excellent application performance becomes a top priority for many organizations. After outlining both, performance metrics and the term actionable insights, I will illustrate how you can transform the former to the latter.
In many fields such as finance, engineering or politics there are groundbreaking changes ongoing. However, our human skill to adapt to new situations will help us to deal with this disruptions.
In this post, I will shine a light on challenges in software engineering, more specifically, on load and performance testing in an energetic environment.
