Sven will be speaking about how to not become another bad web story. We’ve all heard the stories of sites crashing and performing poorly; it’s only a matter of time before another one hits the headlines.

Sven will demonstrate how to work with selenium scripting, utilizing the latest tools and expertise that result in “Rapid Actionable Insight” into performance issues without breaking the budget or schedules. Through this live demonstration, Sven will show you how to leverage the latest load testing techniques to improve your overall performance monitoring strategy.

Intended Audience:

  • Those who are new to performance testing and performance monitoring
  • Those responsible for ensuring that web properties meet the performance expectations of end users and scale in the cloud with confidence.

What will you walk away with:

  • The understanding of the interrelationship of Application Performance Monitoring and Performance Testing.
  • How implementing these simple techniques can help prevent a site from becoming the next bad web story.
  • The understanding of how load testing and monitoring technologies ensure performance today and in the future by quickly providing actionable insight into where bottlenecks and limitations occur.
  • The understanding that performance monitoring and performance testing can be accomplished without major budget requirements and results can be achieved quickly without long learning curves.
