Measuring to be more proactive
The impact of new IT developments on the existing infrastructure remains the Achilles’ heel of many IT projects and is frequently a major risk to application performance: ‘loss of performance’ is how our two developers express it.
To avoid such complications, one of the fundamental development trends of Microsoft technologies, from Azure to .Net, is to instigate more controls during the development phase. “The aim is to detect problems in performance and speed throughout the development phase in order to resolve these issues before writing code. This includes, for example, performing user load tests, identifying the critical points and measuring progress using key performance indicators (KPI)”, explains Benjamin. “When the KPIs are positive we don’t have to worry about starting production. In the .Net development world to measure is to know,” continues Nathan.
Above all, Benjamin and Nathan are happy to have had the opportunity to put their theory into practice. Customers who are innovating in Wallonia have indeed been able to benefit from their performance optimization techniques, thus creating a vicious circle.
