Optimize Performance Testing Using Cloud and DevOps

Add to calendar

Traditional performance testing practices don't scale when you begin delivering software using cloud computing and DevOps. Troy Marshall shares how Ellucian transformed their performance testing program using the same principles DevOps uses to deliver software. It isn't enough just to automate the execution of performance tests. You must continually optimize every step—from building the performance test tool infrastructure, configuring test scripts and scenarios, collecting metrics, and reporting results. In addition, by using cloud computing to implement performance testing, you create significant business value by reducing the cost, increasing velocity, and bringing more visibility to your application’s performance. Join Troy to learn how to enable your development teams to consume performance testing as just another service in the CI/CD pipeline, freeing them to focus attention on developing their products.
