Performance Engineering- The Heart Of Digital Acceleration: 5 Reasons How It Tackles Digital Transformation Challenges

Global businesses in this digital age are in demand to be extremely streamlined and flexible to quickly handle the speed of business in a mission-critical production landscape. But siloed computing, networking, and system performance management slow down the process and make this level of agility a difficult-to-achieve goal. But trying to impose complex workloads in an unprepared environment can expose performance deficiencies as it is not optimized to handle digital transformation and workload requirements.

In order to achieve superior system performance in a way that improves cost-effectiveness and reduces time-to-market, applications should be deployed in an optimized, integrable environment with industry-standard testing tools.  A comprehensive performance engineering is highly vital to ensure predictable delivery excellence, enhance performance-critical systems, and optimize infrastructure.

Performance Engineering takes a groundbreaking strategy of taking QA, optimizing it with some of the be best-in-class tools and injecting it into the core processes of SDLC. This seamless process assures early performance validation, provides feedback to developers, and thus reduces test cycles.

This fully integrated networking, optimized and designed to emulate complex, mission-critical workloads, translates to potential cost savings, and key system qualities like flexibility, maintainability, reliability, and usability.

By clinging to the traditional way of doing application performance management, testers could only automate part of the load testing process. They were unable to achieve automation other than the process of applying load to test infrastructure. It causes serious testing problems as it is immensely difficult to get to the root cause of the performance issues in complicated real-world testing scenarios. So, how performance engineering and testing can transform the core of an application and build an optimal ecosystem where digital transformation can thrive?

Performance Engineering Across The Entire Testing Value Chain

The widespread adoption of digital technologies has become a trend as consumer demands continue to evolve. The rapid pace of change in global businesses is one reason why digital transformation has become inevitable. A digital infrastructure’s ability to help organizations navigate the business change and the ability to meet sudden increased demand has made it a driving force. But the exponential growth can only be sustained and monetized by retooling modern technologies to focus on digital competencies. Performance engineering which comes from a quality engineering perspective helps deliver the speed, accuracy, and quality that are needed for applications in a digital setup.  Here are some benefits it can bring to digital organizations.

  • Performance engineering comes packed with key solutions to ensure the scalability and performance of modern applications. It provides a holistic and quantitative approach to performance, with key integrated tools to measure system performance in a complex and multi-tier application environment.
  • Performance engineering is purpose-built to unify production, test, and development teams. It enables aggregation of siloed performance and embeds it into operations to increase efficiency. Its real opportunities for faster growth and greater productivity are based on its ability to capture a workload on different databases that need to co-exists concurrently. The result? Companies can have a coordinated digital and human interactions that are useful in creating an immersive digital environment.
  • In addition to this, performance engineering offers fully optimized testing to determine an application’s behavior under peak load conditions. It puts user demand on an application with real production workloads and measures the response and finds out the factors that hinder better performance in a digital landscape.
  • Capacity planning methodology in a performance engineering program is an important aspect of performance engineering to plan scale-up, and scheduling of multiple workloads to reshape the competitive landscape, giving an edge to digital-native enterprises.
  • Respond to threats before they strike. Unlike the traditional approach of fixing the IT systems after a business interruption, introducing continuous testing throughout the software delivery process helps the company stay resilient and prevent any major system outage. It entails an always-on test environment that enables you to be aware of system vulnerabilities and build protective mechanisms way ahead.
