Reinventing Performance Testing: New Technologies

Alex Podelko

New Technologies (this post). Some HTTP-based protocols are extremely difficult to correlate if there is no built-in support, so it is recommended that you look for that kind of specific support if such technologies are used. The most prominent special case is mobile technologies.

Philosophy of Technology

Professor Beekums

One thing I find myself considering more and more is the philosophy of the people who are building the technology I am evaluating. A lot of factors are considered in a build vs buy decision. What are the technical capabilities of existing systems?

However, the hype surrounding blockchain doesn’t mean we’ve even scratched the surface of the technology’s enterprise potential. However, the Bitcoin-iteration of this technology also shows why blockchain isn’t a direct replacement for your enterprise databases.

Technology Problems Are People Problems First

Professor Beekums

I’m a software developer. When I see a technical problem, my first thoughts are always for technical solutions. It is the obvious thing to do. However, solving a problem well often requires understanding what caused the problem in the first place.

Looking for disruption? Don't look to technology

The Agile Manager

The chattering classes would have us believe that technology disrupts. By way of example, the technology to enable the sharing economy existed for years, but monetizing everything from spare time to the spare bedroom only became appealing when mortgages went underwater, wages stagnated, and the labor participation rate dropped. That computer technology was at the center of this disruption should be no surprise given the rise of the Information Age several decades ago.

Strategic IT Does More than Assume Technology Risk, it Mitigates Business Risk

The Agile Manager

Being asked to do nothing more than assume risk for something such as availability or performance of technology is appealing from an IT perspective because it’s a space we know, or at least we think we know. play with shiny new toys) without taking us out of our comfort zone (the technology space versus the business space). Worrying with the technology is familiar territory; worrying about the underlying business need driving the technology is not.

Alex Podelko

Finally, in addition to the standard disclaimer that all these above are my personal thoughts only, I should admit that I have rather a bad record of business predictions – usually simplistic and limited technologies succeeded on the market over more deep technologies that appeared to be much more promising to me… Anyway, looking forward to see what the future holds to performance testing.
