Reasons for Performance Testing:
Websites: For a modern business reliant on the Internet for sales and growth, it is important to find problems with your website before your customers do. Too much load can cause a website to run slowly or fail, potentially resulting in lost revenue and damaged customer confidence. Perfomance testing guards against this by finding bottlenecks and gathering the data needed to optimize a website's performance.
Applications: Internal business-critical applications can be compromised as a result of poor application performance with severe business consequences. Slow responses times can seriously hamper the day-to-day operations and productivity of an organization.

Types of Performance Testing
Automation Consultants offers all common types of performance testing including load testing, stress testing and soak testing (or stability testing). Custom performance tests are offered for systems which need a special approach.
Automation Consultants delivers performance testing services in various different ways ranging from individual consultants who fit into a customer's team to a fully outsourced managed service. For more details, see our engagement models.
What we bring to the table
- Independence: Automation Consultants provides a service independent of those implementing the system, thus providing an objective view of performance and fresh insights into the causes of any problems.
- Expertise: Performance testing often requires a deep understanding of the way systems perform under load and performance test tools, and wide general understanding of IT systems. Automation Consultants' staff have this expertise and can also draw on the accumulated experience of the company.
- Cost effectiveness: Using Automation Consultants is often less expensive than the contract market, and the level of expertise in the company normally allows the job to be done faster.
- Flexibility: Automation Consultants can provide flexible resources for short term and intermittent assignments.
