Every engineering organization will encounter struggles in trying to get reliable and repeatable insights into their processes.  The world now relies heavily on interconnected software systems to do things as simple as sending an email to something as complex as finding cures for rare diseases.  

When software doesn’t work as expected, teams need to know what the root cause of the particular failure was.  More importantly, they need to understand what they can do going forward to detect a similar risk before it is able to cause harm.  This problem only continues to grow in complexity as companies scale and need to manage various release trains, development processes, and tool sets.

Some of you may have attended our “Getting Started with Performance Testing” webinar a couple of weeks ago. The event was such a success, we’re doing it again! For those of you who missed it, make sure to sign up for the next session here. In the meantime, I’ll give you a taste:

In this webinar, we will run through the basics of performance testing. For a lot of folks just introducing test automation into their company (or even those who are already doing functional test automation), performance and load testing can be daunting.

To help alleviate the stress and clarify some first steps, we decided to run this webinar to help break down the basics for getting started. Steps for getting started include planning and preparation, test architecture, constraints, test creation/ recording, execution, and results.
