Left arrow painted on a wall 5 Ways to Shift Performance Testing Left

Performance testing is often a barrier to accelerating software delivery. Because you need a production-like environment, performance testing often waits until the entire application is complete. But you shouldn't wait until then to get started. You can begin testing earlier to reduce rework and address issues sooner.

Gauge showing low performance Detect Performance Issues in Production with Continuous Delivery

Maybe the most important source of feedback is what happens in production. It’s amazing the information you can get if you properly monitor and analyze the data. Continuous delivery gives more precise feedback from different sources, thanks to observing the impact of every realized change while improving traceability.

There are a lot of hidden assumptions behind monitoring for modern software development methods such as DevOps. Some think software testing is avoidable and discovering problems in production and fixing them later is okay. But monitoring isn't meant to replace skilled testing. For the best quality, use both together.

Removing the Performance Testing Bottleneck

When you start down the road to continuous testing, even if you increase speed, performance tests can still hold up production deployments. By using application monitoring, service virtualization, and open source performance testing tools, performance testing is accounted for in every cycle of development.

Go-Live Lessons: The Path from Software Development to Production

On systems integration projects where a vendor is building or configuring a system for a client, you sometimes cross the canyon from development to production and maintenance in several smaller bounds rather than one big leap. A warranty period after go-live can help stakeholders confidently monitor quality.

What's More Important: Mobile App Performance or User Experience?

More and more, users are expecting increasingly responsive apps on day one, and if certain actions take just a single second longer than what they feel is justifiable, the app could be uninstalled before it’s ever really given a chance. But more complex apps might just be slower. Which is the priority?
