The relevancy of performance engineering increases as organizations and users expect more reliability and availability from complex computer systems. This expectation puts pressure on the performance engineer to measure and demonstrate the impact of their work. In this course, learn how performance engineering compares to and extends the classic concept of performance testing. Study the main operational goals of a performance engineer and how these goals are measured using KPIs. Examine the technical questions a performance engineer must ask when evaluating a system's performance and the technical KPIs they can deploy to meet performance criteria. Finally, investigate the conducive business impact of performance engineering. Upon completion, you'll know how to meet key business objectives using performance engineering evaluation techniques.
