To streamline Agile methods, collaboration and automation, Enterprise DevOps environments are now crucial in accelerating your software delivery, shifting to continuous quality improvement, and increasing your organization’s productivity.
When starting a new cycle of performance testing, there should always be a goal at the end of the cycle, otherwise how do you know if the testing was successful or not? Sometimes there are there ambiguous targets, like that the system should support X number of users at peak load, but it won’t go deeper than that. By setting up quantitative goals and using service level agreements (SLAs), the result of the performance test is answered with a definitive pass or fail.
Agile software development is not the end of traditional development, and it’s certainly not the end of your in-house methodologies. A recent paper written by IT Central Station led to four best practice recommendations for improving application delivery, based on insights from real users.
