Half-Day Tutorial: Performance Testing: Engineering for Success

Tuesday, April 16, 2013: 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM | Room:

Applications are built with a variety of infrastructure hardware and software components. Each component can be an impact to the overall infrastructure. Performance testing is the unique method in the software quality portfolio that enables us to identify the effect of each component. Discover what is required to successfully integrate performance testing into your organization. Successful performance testing of your critical applications will help you to identify and correct system bottlenecks before going to production. It will also lead to less production downtime and the opportunity to identify defects otherwise impossible to detect with functional testing alone. Join Mike to discuss the use of technology to support performance testing. You will explore proven implementation approaches for performance testing processes and test automation tools for a variety of technology platforms including web, data warehouse, and others.

  • Learn the concepts and use of technology to support performance testing
  • Understand how to analyze and derive performance requirements
  • Investigate proven implementation approaches for performance testing
