Gomez: Compuware Publishes New White Paper “Application Performance Testing: From Conception to Gravestone”

DETROIT January 11, 2011 – Paper Authored by Performance Testing Expert Scott Barber Examines Performance and Load Testing as Integral Parts of the Application Lifecycle

Compuware Corporation (NASDAQ:CPWR), the technology performance company, has published a new white paper that focuses on performance and load testing as integral parts of the application lifecycle. Authored by performance testing expert Scott Barber, this paper draws parallels between performance testing of software systems and a person�s growth, development, and eventual decline from conception to the gravestone.

Performance testing and load testing are primarily regarded as episodic activities � done once in the lifecycle for a given application. This white paper focuses on how application performance testing throughout the application lifecycle adds value and mitigates risk. It discusses how to integrate performance testing into all phases of the application lifecycle and the additional benefits that can be achieved by Web load testing early and often in the application lifecycle.

Barber is Chief Technologist of PerfTestPlus, Executive Director for the Association for Software Testing, Co-Founder of the Workshop on Performance and Reliability, and co-author of both “Performance Testing Guidance for Web Applications” and “Beautiful Testing”. He recently participated in a webinar with Imad Mouline, Compuware CTO, APM Solutions, titled “Application Performance Testing: From Concept to Gravestone”.
