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.

Performance vs Performance Testing

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 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.

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
Resource utilization
Maximum user loud
Behaviour under stress

Case Study

The Nedbank Robo advisor project was started in late 2016 to provide their customers with an online investment application platform. DVT did not just test the project from a functional perspective, but also through performance testing. DVT was able to start with the performance testing journey very early on and formed part of the deployment process, which meant any issues picked up could be fed back to the development team very quickly.

Watch this video to gain a deeper understanding into how the team added value though performance testing to a project that also won the Banker Tech Projects Award 2018.
