What Is Performance Testing?

Performance testing involves examining the responsiveness, speed and stability of an application, and ensures that a computer, device, network, or software application performs as expected while under specific workload conditions. A strong performance testing strategy includes tests that evaluate the reliability, processing speed, data transfer rate, throughput and network bandwidth.

Check Out a Recent Performance Testing Case Study


One of our clients offers enterprise legal matter management solutions and was experiencing business requirements shifting regularly according to their customers’ demands, requiring our client to adopt an agile workflow and an entirely new way of thinking about testing and collaboration across development and QA.


Our team of testing experts took a three pronged approach to make sure that our client’s application performs as expected. The approach included strategy planning so we could adapt to their agile process and create a comprehensive performance testing plan. We then identified and prioritized all of the business-critical workflows to ensure thorough testing took place and developed scripts for testing their prioritized scenarios. These scripts were then integrated with our CI tool for automatic test execution and report generation.


In the end, our client experienced significant cost savings across several areas, including hardware and testing tool expenses, human resources and change management by identifying performance defects and architectural issues early on by offering greater visibility into overall and specific scenario performance.
