How can a test team simplify the transition from performance testing two-tier client/server applications to testing complex, multi-tier web applications combined with an exponential growth in testing needs? In this presentation, Nancy Landau presents case studies that address changes made in performance testing methods to handle compressed delivery schedules, new architectures and technologies, and changing customer expectations. The experiences focus on performance testing, but the strategies apply to all test efforts.
