F12 – 603: Application Performance Test Planning Best Practices

Track: Performance Testing

Many companies experience performance issues in production even after they have tested it to endure load. Why? This session will demonstrate the value of performance testing for real-world scenarios and how to properly plan for your application’s “perfect storm”. How to create and react to chaos before it happens in production will be explored. Attendees will learn tried and true guidelines that can used to plan for realistic peak loads and understand what worst case looks like before customers do. In addition, we will discuss how cloud architecture and Software-As-A-Service introduces new problems. Attendees will walk away with a repeatable test execution methodology to use on any performance testing project in the future.
