Your customers are more demanding, uncompromising, and unrelenting than ever before. They expect your applications and systems to deliver an exceptional experience every time, wherever they are on whatever device they chose. However, when your system fails to perform because of complex infrastructure, mobile network connections or any other reason, your customers get frustrated and quickly become former customers. In the world moving at Cloud and DevOps speed, how can you stay ahead and deliver the exceptional experience your customers expect? Don't let performance be an afterthought that you attempt to address in final testing. Rather, consider how to engineer for performance from the very beginning.
