NeoLoad: the gatekeeper for your releases



Performance testing is complex and takes time because it still requires human action. So how can reliable and thorough performance tests be executed in these fast-paced environments and how can performance testing tools integrate with a DevOps tool chain?

In order to secure the deployment of releases in production, the developers typically apply an early performance testing approach for the main components.

Most of them are more comfortable building performance tests directly from their IDE, while performance engineers use another way. As a consequence, it is not possible to re-use the work done by the developers.

We can overcome this challenge by building a strong “quality as code” pipeline mixing pure code scenarios for component testing, and hybrid design for your staging pipeline.

In this session, you will learn more about the best practices to include performance testing into your DevOps development process:

  • What is the impact of DevOps on performance testing practice?
  • How to integrate your performance testing solution into a DevOps tool chain?
  • Which parts of performance testing can be automated in a DevOps environment?
  • How can NeoLoad expose a score on the quality of your release?
  • How can I handle automatically the change on my E2E scenarios with the help of Ranorex or Selenium?
