Part 4 – Assessment of your Performance Engineering Maturity Level

Every business depends on reliable and responsive applications and with the rise of digitalisation user experience will become more important than ever before. Treating performance as an afterthought will directly have an impact on your financial revenue. Therefore, I highly recommend closing blind spots in your performance engineering approach.

Obviously, it’s not possible to reach a mature performance engineering level overnight, but you should be aware that there are eventually gaps which hold you back from achieving excellent user experience. I’ll give you now three simple steps which help you to identify the maturity level of your performance engineering activities.

Part 3 – Performance Engineering Maturity Model at Work

There is no business which should treat performance as an afterthought because slow loading or not responding applications can quickly have an impact on financial revenue. Unsatisfied users will most likely not return and will continue with other more reliable services. Therefore, I highly recommend integrating performance aspects into your development chain.

In this blog post, I will outline activities which help you to improve the performance of your business applications. The chart below outlines nine practices of the performance engineering maturity model and each practice is split up in three activities across the maturity levels. Low maturity level activities are less effective and easier to implement.

Risk based Performance Engineering

erformance test effort estimation can be tricky. Especially, in integration projects, when a high number of applications need to be tested and the time line is very limited, a better approach is required.
