I started my career as a Telecom Engineer for Rational Software in the load testing space back in the late 90s and, when I look back on the last decade, there were enormous advances in the broader IT world. Development methodologies, processing speeds, network speeds, mobile devices (it’s hard to believe the first iPhone was only released 6 years ago) have all evolved. But the question is, has the world of load and performance testing really changed all that much? Are the missions the same? Are the challenges different? And how can we be prepared for the future of load and performance testing?
