Performance Testing and Engineering in Pipeline

As more and more organizations embark on modernizing their enterprise, and join the agile and DevOps bandwagon, it becomes but natural for the IT and Business teams to relook at their age-old legacy IT processes and align them with the modern delivery techniques. One of the first things that generally gets discussed in such a case from a testing standpoint is to implement a culture of shift left and testing in parallel with development. Harshad and Depen will take us through the essence of what that means from a performance testing and engineering standpoint and deep dive on the approach to implement a continuous performance test practice in every stage of the pipeline. He will also discuss variations in the approach and overall strategy when it comes to testing a cloud hosted SaaS product in this discussion. Attendees will walk away from this session equipped with knowledge to implement a continuous performance test and engineering practice in your pipeline.
