As the application lifecycle evolves, components that drive efficiency and quality become more crucial.  Organizations building centers of excellence (CoE) around performance testing find that the CoE centralizes resources and utilizes the full capabilities of today’s robust automation products. One of the main benefits is that organizations are able to consistently produce better performing applications. 

In a survey focused on rationales for building a performance CoE, the associated ROI, and success factors, we tested the hypothesis that more mature organizations have built more effective CoEs, are contributing to overall customer satisfaction, and are meeting or exceeding the goals of organizational service level agreements (SLAs).

Since I am in Los Angeles this week, I am in a Dragnet kind of a mood, and as Sgt. Joe Friday would say – “All we know are the facts, ma'am"

The facts are:
• The HP acquisition of Mercury is completed
• The cost to HP $4.5 billion in cash
• The acquisition was announced on July 25, 2006
• The acquisition was closed on November 7, 2006

All we know are the facts – all we know for certain...

 
The final (assuming the HP acquisition of Mercury closes) Mercury World was held in Las Vegas, Nevada the week of October 9, 2006. Captain Mercury had one last hurrah - I am sure many of you remember Captain Mercury, the superhero of load testing! ...

Application performance management requires you to pay attention to each step of the performance lifecycle - from designing the architecture, to the build, to testing, monitoring, maintenance and management. Performance experts dissect each phase of the lifecycle to reveal solutions for the most common performance problems, the right tools for the job, and tips for finding, diagnosing and fixing performance bugs.

This free, one-day virtual seminar focuses on:

  • Techniques for applying application management across the lifecycle
  • How to elicit performance goals for client, server and mobile applications
  • Applying a tools-based approach to any application performance management process
  • How to identify performance issues in cloud environments

If you’re interested in optimizing IT resources by transforming your application lifecyclein particular efficiency and qualitythen Join Theresa Lanowitz, founder of analyst firm voke, as she presents the findings of a recent market snapshot on performance centers of excellence (CoEs). Topics covered will include building a performance COI, achieving qualitative and quantitative ROI, gaining organizational maturity, and realizing strategic value and tangible results. You’ll come away with a new strategic approach to delivering customer satisfaction, high quality, and resource savings.

Performance experts discuss ways to document performance and scalability requirements, track those requirements through development and test, and measure performance across every stage of the development lifecycle. The panel concludes with a debate on how to best determine if those requirements are met prior to moving to production. This discussion gives you insight into how to:

  • Define measurable performance requirements before a line of code is written
  • Drive development and test strategies through effective performance requirements
  • Determine if performance requirements are met before application deployment


To achieve business optimization through the application lifecycle, organizations are building centers of excellence (COE). A COE focused on performance is a strategic way to deliver customer satisfaction, high quality and resource savings.

Join Theresa Lanowitz, founder of voke Inc., as she presents the findings of a recent Market Snapshot on Performance Centers of Excellence. In this presentation, we will discuss:

  • Building a performance COE
  • Achieving performance COE ROI – qualitative and quantitative
  • Gaining organizational maturity through a performance COE
  • Realizing the benefits, results, and strategic value of a performance COE

Today's enterprise apps are both complex and ever-changing, which makes delivering high performance difficult. By Virtualizing the behavior of application services and data in a VSE, teams can answer this challenge with Load & Performance validation best practices, and test tools like LoadRunner, to ensure solid performance throughout the development and integration lifecycle.

Organizations can no longer dictate where, when, or how software is used. Workers are mobile, customers are global, and every individual has a preference as to how they want to consume software. As a result, the testing market of the future will not have one dominant vendor; rather the market will be defined by software from testing vendors that is open and integrated with a wide variety of tooling options. Testers must be able to plan for and execute as many combinations and permutations of software and hardware as possible to predict the outcome of software usage. Testing professionals are now in the strategic role of customer advocate and help deliver higher quality software throughout the enterprise by placing a laser focus on assessing the risk associated with every piece of software.

The 2012 Market Mover Array recognizes the following testing platforms vendors:

  • Coverity
  • Electric Cloud
  • Experitest
