In response to increasing market demand for well-performing applications, many organizations implement performance testing programs, often at great expense. These solutions alone are often insufficient to keep pace with emerging expectations and competitive pressures. In a half day tutorial, Scott Barber shares the fundamentals of implementing T4APM™, a simple and universal approach that is valuable independently or as an extension of existing performance testing programs. The approach hinges on applying a simple and unobtrusive “Target, Test, Trend, Tune” cycle to tasks in your application lifecycle – from a single unit test through entire system production monitoring.
 
In the session, “How Metrics Programs Can Destroy Your Soul,” Scott shares what stakeholders are looking for when they request specific metrics, how the metrics they request frequently fail and how to help your organization create metrics that do provide real insight. Discover the tools needed to explain what can be measured, what those measurements mean and how to combine measurements into metrics that tell insightful stories about your testing.
