Performance for an application determines how quickly your software can complete the intended task.
It answers questions about the application, such as:
- Response time under peak load
- Ease of use, supported functionality, and use cases compared to an alternative
- Operational costs (CPU usage, memory needs, data throughput, bandwidth, etc.)
The value of this performance analysis extends beyond the estimation of the compute resources needed to serve the load or the number of application instances needed to meet the peak demand. Performance is clearly tied to the fundamentals of a successful business. It informs the overall user experience, including identifying what slows down customer-expected response times, improving customer stickiness by designing content delivery optimized to their bandwidth, choosing the best device, and ultimately helping enterprises grow their business.
