Solution & Approach

  • Identify performance objectives and risks
  • Conduct a tool analysis and POC
  • Selected LoginVSI for Windows application testing
  • Performance testing that mimicked production usage and growth
  • Determine system breaking points under stress and tuning needs

ROI

  • Zero production performance capacity issues on go live
  • Under budget through time and resource management
  • Established a model for baseline CI/CD/CQ with continuous performance engineering

Challenge & Test Requirements

  • TEAM Software was challenged by a software modification that needed to meet high growth objectives
  • QA Consultants identified risk areas, established clear requirements for the areas under test, and selected tools to meet project objectives
  • QA Consultants was challenged with developing a load test solution that included a thick client Windows application delivered via a Parallels, Web based portals, and API infrastructure
  • The solution required an integrated performance and capacity test across 3 platforms to the same database

Results

  • Identified and optimized slow database queries
  • Future-proofed testing in a Continuous Integration Pipeline
  • Seamless knowledge transfer for internal staff
  • Determined web front end break point capacity
  • Improved infrastructure based on test results
  • Implemented API performance related improvements
