The unique nature of modern, hybrid applications demands a different approach to performance testing.


As IT staff move applications to the cloud and mobile, many discover that capacity testing is not the same as it would be testing applications in traditional environments. Applications cannot always scale up, even when running on scalable cloud infrastructures. 


Hybrid application performance testing must look seamlessly at end-to-end application performance as it travels across diverse environments, and performance must be optimized for each environment along the application delivery chain. This requires advanced, proactive planning and QA testing throughout the development lifecycle.


This webinar will examine some of the most important considerations for modern application performance testing and planning, such as: 

  • Why modern, hybrid applications demand a different approach to performance testing.
  • The most important application performance metrics you should be testing and how to properly correlate those metrics with strategic business goals.
  • The application testing process including basic steps, important considerations, and expert tips.
  • An introduction to Apica's high capacity Load Testing platform.
