Performance Testing


We ensure stability at all times

Performance testing is a technical investigation done to determine or validate the speed, scalability and/or stability characteristics of the application under test. Performance testing and engineering should be incorporated throughout a system’s development, roll-out, and ongoing maintenance. This way you avoid overlooked errors, unsatisfied customers, reputation damage, and the high cost of poor quality.

It is common for organizations to build applications with little or no focus on a defined performance engineering or testing capability. Even though the application has been ‘tested’, significant challenges can still be faced:

  • Poor performing applications cost money in lost productivity
  • Applications breakdown as demand grows or there are unexpected issues due to intensive loads
  • Lack of insight into which applications or business transactions are potential risks and bottlenecks
  • Performance issues when integrating multiple applications in an E2E program (web, mobile, mainframe)
  • Unsatisfied end users and clients
  • Environment/Data locks due to excessive loading and unplanned transactions
  • Lagging behind the competition
  • Unplanned system outages & downtime
  • Expensive SWAT teams reacting to production outages

QA Consultant’s performance testing group provides expert and economical testing services ‘on demand’ for any industry or project size. Our comprehensive range of services is designed to maximize client application and system performance and scalability under a variety of conditions. Performance testing can be delivered through our Toronto-based Test Factory™ centre of excellence, at the client site or through a
