The IT world is ever-changing and performance testing needs to provide quality assurance under demanding workloads that could change from one year to the next. The performance testing life cycle is all about ensuring that your software’s performance is able to operate at a high level even under less than ideal circumstances.

You have even tested to see if it works and, like clockwork, it’s running smoothly. The only problem is, in all the conceptualizing, development, and testing, you have only been considering your app’s performance in perfect conditions. But what happens when conditions are suboptimal? One question still remains... Can it perform?
