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 […]
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. […]
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 […]
Speed is no longer nice to have. Nowadays, businesses live and die because of how customers using their services online. This post is the second part of my series about […]
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 […]
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 […]
Companies are often not happy with their performance testing suite because it is too expensive, usability is pure, and maintenance efforts are high, and re-use of automated testing scripts is […]
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.
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.
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.
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.
There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.
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.
Nowadays, information technology is at the heart of every business. Outages or slow downs of critical software components often impacts the whole organization.
Have you ever been affected by a slow loading or not responding application? According to recent studies a typical user is willing to wait up to 4 seconds and will […]
