Integrating Performance Engineering and Testing into Agile

Performance engineering and testing are a set of activities by which we design, test, and implement the most optimal system that meets the expected performance goals, based on planning and estimation coupled with tests to verify the system’s capabilities. Although the conventional approach to performance testing works well for traditional delivery models, it is ineffective in agile as it involves testing and tuning near the end of development. Arun Shanmugam describes ways to customize the approach to include performance engineering and testing throughout agile sprints by including specific user stories related to application performance as part of the product backlog. Learn why the performance engineer must have a voice in guiding the prioritization of stories to help weed out potential issues before they become bottlenecks. Arun describes how the performance and test engineers can work in parallel with the development team so that there are few or no bad surprises when the release hits the streets.

With real-time experience in the field of Application Performance Management (APM)—Arun Shanmugam analyzes and unearths issues that affect system performance. With strong foundational skills, certified expertise in HP/IBM performance testing tools, and proficiency in other open source testing and monitoring solutions, Arun ensures that the clients always remain satisfied with their application performance and are well informed to deal with anomalies or deviations from expected behavior.
