Evaluate your solution to verify performance under heavy loads and during resource bottlenecks. The ultimate preparation for scalability.

DON’T FALL VICTIM TO YOUR OWN SUCCESS

If your solution commands a large number of concurrent users, improper planning can bring your successful product crashing down. Our Performance Testing process analyzes your solution’s behavior under both normal and anticipated peak load conditions and identifies limits where degradation begins.

FOUR QUESTIONS TO ASK ABOUT YOUR SOFTWARE PERFORMANCE

Can You Handle Your Everyday Load?

Do you have a firm grasp on the amount of users accessing your solution on a daily basis?  Will your new development be able to handle the typical traffic you receive?

Where are System Bottlenecks?

What areas of your solution are causing the biggest delays?  Are there specific sections of your database that are being access more frequently than others?

Can Your System Handle Extreme Traffic?

If your solution performs well and attracts new users, are you capable of scaling?  How will your solution respond to a sudden spike in user traffic?

What are Your Resource Limits?

Are your resources being deployed effectively?  Do you have a firm grasp on the limits of your resources and a plan in place to scale if necessary?

COMPONENTS OF PERFORMANCE TESTING

LOAD

How is your solution responding to normal traffic loads?

STRESS

What are the limits of your solution? Will heavy traffic break your software?

SPIKE

How does your software perform under increasing amounts of stored data?

ENDURANCE

How will your software perform under load for an extended duration of time?

CONFIGURATION

Will configuration changes impact the performance of your software?

SCALABILITY

Will increased processing power or architecture changes impact performance?

COULD PERFORMANCE ISSUES DAMAGE YOUR REPUTATION?

The Performance Testing Process

Acquire

We gather information that will allow us to help you define business objectives and key features of the software.

Strategize

We define baseline values and the metrics we will use to test performance. Once complete, we will determine the process and tools for testing.

Execute

We execute test scenarios and validate the results. All outcomes will be tracked and recorded.

Report

Test results and analyzed and we place the test data and our expert conclusions into a detailed report for your organization.

Improve

Our reports will include recommendations on how to address performance failures, and configuration changes that might lead to improvements.

NOT SURE WHERE TO START?

Before you can effectively build the solution of tomorrow, you must first understand where you are today. We can help.
