Performance Testing: Balancing Agility and Quality
From Gigaom Research, Underwritten by Apica
Today, application performance is more important than ever.
Numerous studies have shown that even small degradations in application performance can have severe impacts on revenue and customer experience.
As organizations continue adopting agile methods for delivery, verifying application performance must not get bypassed in the pursuit of faster time to market. Yet it also must not stand in the way of getting enhancements to customers quickly, before the competition does.
Key findings include:
- Ensuring consistent app performance for every release of every app requires an integrated approach to performance testing and monitoring.
- By automating the gathering, analysis, and dissemination of key performance data to the right decision makers, organizations free their teams to spend more time on value-added practices related to proactive management.
- Next-generation app performance testing and monitoring tools form essential building blocks for high-quality rapid releases.
