Software Performance Testing

In a digital world where consumers call the shots, it's essential that your website or mobile app delivers fast and efficient services. Performance testing is essential to prevent any bottlenecks and to increase customer satisfaction and retention by reducing wait time.

Ironically, performance is usually top of mind, but performance testing isn’t. Software and mobile app performance testing must be done as early as possible in the development cycle, especially if performance metrics are going to affect the overall architecture of the solution you’re building.

Performance output and ease of customer satisfaction while interacting with your software is a key focus point for our performance teams while servicing your business performances needs.

Performance testing benefits

Often included as an afterthought, performance testing is usually done at the end of a project or just-in-time before a major product release, or when something goes wrong in production. Fortunately, companies are starting to pay closer attention to performance testing earlier in the software development testing lifecycle. Some companies are also adding performance testing into continuous integration. There is also a range of new performance testing tools available on the market, which makes performance testing so much faster – and therefore more effective.

Why performance testing is important

Apart from ensuring that your website or app does not keep the customer waiting, proactive software performance testing is essential during mass events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. By analysing KPIs from previous critical mass events, steps can be taken to ensure critical systems are ready for the massive spike in traffic volume. Some of the critical performance factors we test for include:

Response time

What our experts say
Frequently asked questions
  • What is performance testing?

    Open or Close

    Performance testing is a type of software testing which ensures a system performs well under pressure. The goal is not to find defects but to eliminate performance bottlenecks, measuring the quality attributes (ie. speed, scalability and stability) of your system or application.

  • What is performance testing in Agile?

    Open or Close

    An integral part of Agile processes is to develop higher quality software in less time while reducing development costs (ROI). The goal of performance testing is to test performance early and often in the SDLC and to test performance and functionality in the same sprint.

  • Why do we need performance testing?

    Open or Close

    Performance testing provides crucial information about an application or system and points out what needs to be improved before a product goes to market. Software might suffer if issues around speed, scalability and stability requirements aren't identified. Our performance testing services and QA expertise will give you peace of mind to achieve maximum results.

  • What are the different types of performance testing?

    Open or Close

    Performance testing types include: load testing, endurance testing, stress testing, volume testing, spike testing and scalability testing.

  • What do performance testing metrics include?

    Open or Close

    Performance metrics commonly include: throughput, memory, response time, bandwidth and CPU interrupts per second.

  • What are the best performance testing tools?

    Open or Close

    Here are just some of the tools used for performance testing; NeoLoad, LoadRunner, LoadNinja, Apache JMeter, LoadUI Pro, LoadView, Silk Performer, WebLoad, AppLoader and Smartmeter.io
