Yesterday’s Performance Engineering approach can’t stop today’s Bottlenecks

New technology is popping up almost overnight, and the complexity of our applications is increasing. Virtualization, artificial intelligence, microservices, and machine learning are just the beginning, and there is much more to come. Some people argue that performance is the most important feature.

Does Fragmented Monitoring Keep you from Enterprise Insights

The best business application struggles from time to time, responds slow to user queries or is temporarily not available. Organizations learned that monitoring of critical components is the way to go. In this post, I will explain benefits and drawbacks involved in this development.

Performance Optimization is like painting the Golden Gate Bridge

Users speed expectations are on the rise and companies started investing in the optimization of their services and business processes. Outstanding players such as Amazon understood that the competition is high and bad user experience leads quickly to growing abandon rates. When those frustrated users start to spend their money on other, more reliable websites, it’s already too late.

Performance by Nature

User experience is the most important success criteria, and the expectation of our users is permanently on the rise. According to a recent study from Akamai, in 2006 the average business user expected response times of 4 seconds. Today, 49% expect load times of 2 seconds or below. In this post, I will shine a light on reasons why organizations are failing to meet users speed expectations followed by simple steps towards performance by nature.

Complex Systems Fail in Complex Ways

With the rise of technology, the complexity of our business applications has dramatically increased. Virtualization, microservices and artificial intelligence are about to dominate our IT landscape soon. In this post, I will write about problem spots and proactive solutions.

Web Page Design Analysis is not a one-off Exercise

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 in a Dynamic World

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.

Why Monitoring is essential in DevOps

Time to market is more important than ever before because the competition is on the rise. Successful retailers are deploying every 12 seconds a new release. In this blog post, I will outline reasons for short release sprints and shine a light on the fundamental role of monitoring in a DevOps environment.

The 3 User Experience Antipatterns

The digital transformation is ongoing, and user experience will become more important than ever before. Obviously, there are many benefits of this development, but there are also flipsides. This post will outline typical user experience antipatterns.
