‘Distributed users’ a bigger challenge than cloud for application performance management

In a recent Sogeti survey conducted at TestExpo, 37 percent of respondents said that their budgets and resources were not being allocated correctly to address the significant and increasing risk of end user communities becoming more widely distributed geographically, despite nearly 83 percent highlighting ‘distributed users’ as a major new risk to application performance management.

The survey asked TestExpo attendees to reveal the issues they must tackle on a daily basis while implementing testing methods, areas they felt were challenges and their adoption and attitudes towards testing methodologies.

Other significant findings:

• Identifying and optimizing root causes: More than 45 percent of respondents said they were able to quickly pinpoint and identify the root-cause of performance issues with remediation steps to optimize the system, with 20 percent saying they could pinpoint but not resolve, and the rest admitting this wasn’t possible at their organizations. 29 percent said that they could not pinpoint and resolve, but admitted “it would be great if we could”;

• Predicting how applications meet SLAs: Over 26 percent of professionals surveyed revealed their testing processes either couldn’t or didn’t attempt to meet end user response times of SLAs prior to production deployment. 60 percent said their performance testing process could “usually” predict how well applications meet end user response time targets and SLAs prior to production deployment; while 14 percent claimed this was always the case.
