With every passing day, organizations are becoming more and more mindful about the performance of their Software Products. However, most of them still on look-out for the basics of Performance Engineering.

According to a recent study by Gartner, fixing performance defects near the end of the development cycle costs 50 to 100 times more than the cost required for fixing it during the early phase of development. Hence, if a product suffers from serious performance issues it can be completely scrapped.

Performance Engineering ensures that your application is performing as per expectations and the software is tested and tuned to meet specified or even the unstated performance requirements.

We present you with a webcast on Performance Engineering Basics that would walk you through the elements and process of performance engineering, and also offers a methodical process for the same.

It also offers details on a load testing tool, and describes how best to utilize it.
