Speed up slow applications

Have you ever thought about the entire life cycle of our applications? We develop them within a few months but we use them often decades. Do we pay enough attention to how easy we can monitor and maintain a new app?

How to close performance-engineering gaps in 2019

There’s more to performance engineering than just load injection and response-time validation. Simulating production volumes on our changed applications—and we have plenty of tools for doing this— makes a good […]

The frustration of slow applications

Performance is not just a part of development—it’s also a component of design. That’s because the user experience and the usability of features both depend so much on response times. […]

Performance Test VS Monitoring

With the rise of mobile devices user experience has become more critical than ever before. We have the internet in our pocket, browse through our favorite sites multiple times a […]

Reshaping Business with Speed – Part I

User experience is an all-dominating factor in our digital world. Whether you sell products through web-based platforms or you, use convenient facilities for banking activities, or you get in touch […]

Why do we need Load and Performance Tests

Our expectations for reliable and responsive IT services are increasing, and users are more and more in the driver seat. If applications react slowly to user’s input or are not […]

The Science of Speed

Not so many years ago organizations tried to fix bad user experience with investments in infrastructure. Hardware provider promised that brand-new CPUs, more RAM, and fast storage would fix the annoying performance hotspots. Obviously, this was just in rare cases a good advice. In this post, I will write about top performance hotspots and how speed is unlocking opportunities across all layers.

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.

Why Companies Invest in Load and Performance Tests

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.

Spotlight on the Top 3 Performance Test Types

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.
