Black Friday is coming: are your systems ready?

High-volume activations like Black Friday and the holiday shopping season can be a welcome boost for your organisation’s bottom line. But if your systems aren’t stable, scalable and secure enough to handle a massive spike in traffic or transactions, you will lose out to your competitors.

iOCO, in partnership with ITWeb, invites you to this webinar to discover best practice in performance engineering and testing – whether you’re in e-commerce, retail, or any industry that should support occasional high-volume activities.

You’ll discover the new approach to developing a holistic performance engineering framework for your organisation, and how to integrate user experience, security and stability from the planning stage to the post-implementation monitoring and analysis stage.

Learn why you should be shifting both left and right in the product or app development process and how performance engineering that’s built into the entire software development life cycle does a lot of the heavy lifting when it comes to risk mitigation within the QA process.

You will also learn how iOCO tools and services can help assure application performance and security in the build-up to the demands of big events such as Black Friday.
