Welcome to the second webinar in the Value Proposition series.
In software development, integration is the process of combining individual software components into a single application. Continuous Integration (CI) is the practice of integrating new or changed code on a regular basis. Its purpose is to detect issuesearly in the development cycle. Instead of integrating code as part of a large, separate process toward the end of the implementation phase in the SDLC, CI aligns with Agile development by enforcing integration to occur frequently – at least once a day – thus enhancing agility and improving quality.
The Application Performance Management (APM) space has never been more important to organizations as it is today with so much of business profitability depending on fast, reliable web and mobile applications. At the same time, IT departments have never felt so much pressure to deliver on these applications with environment complexities not seen before, increased business demand, and all the while operating with shrinking budgets on manpower and infrastructure resources.
From the title, you may think this blog article is going to list a bunch of technical server metrics for performance testing, what they mean and their allowable ranges. I will leave that discussion for a future post. For now, we need to start at the beginning. We need to consider the ‘who’, the ‘why’ and the ‘what’ behind the collection of metrics for performance testing.
