HP LoadRunner and Performance Centerhp_loadrunner_components_overview_300x188.jpg

Not taking performance testing seriously means you may not know how well (or how poor) your application performs under load. Poor performance in production applications can result in disgruntled end users and in some cases user abandonment. In mobile situations, users have very little patience for poor performance, bad experiences, and unfriendly GUI interfaces. They react immediately and publicly, which can affect the reputation of your businesses.

Are you taking the time to properly tune your application before rolling it out to production, or are you just accepting the risk as well as the impact of the risk? We understand that it’s not always easy to engineer performance into the software development lifecycle, and that only underscores the importance of Performance testing. In today’s IT reality, there are many new challenges:

  1. Cloud and composite applications are increasingly complex
  2. Customers demand exceptional performance from mobile applications
  3. The continues to increase
  4. Packaged applications update more frequently due to patches and hotfixes
  5. Projects and delivery teams are both agile and global

With HP’s LoadRunner and Performance Center products, project teams are able to effectively conduct load and performance testing of their solutions before impacting production users. With LoadRunner’s wide range of supported protocols (over 50), project teams are able effectively test nearly any application. Adding HP Diagnostics, difficult and deep code-related issues can be uncovered and corrected before end users discover the problems.

Effective testing needs to be accompanied by strong process that can work with waterfall, agile, and continuous development and deployment. Performance testing cannot be just another checklist item. Without good processes, performance testing will always be reactive instead of proactive, and executed too late in the development and testing cycles to be truly effective.
