Achieving optimal system performance has become even more challenging with increased adoption of global sourcing and distributed development practices.
Traditional approaches are found lacking because
- They do not address the complexities of today's n-tier applications
- They increase development costs and delay projects due to problem identification, analysis and resolution activities. These gaps are aggravated by distance, redundancies and cultural differences.
Engineer your IT systems to improve your business performance is a web seminar that offers a holistic approach to system performance. It blends leading research in performance engineering with real world experience.
This web seminar provides proactive workload and performance modeling, benchmarking, tuning and optimization to deliver secure, reliable, high-performance systems. Our approach ensures collaboration among globally distributed stakeholders, architects, development and testing teams.
