Learn how to scale performance testing teams in large organizations. Maintaining a standard across the board for performance engineering teams is crucial for ensuring consistent output and understanding within big companies (the enterprise). Identifying and resolving defects in e-commerce sites can save millions of dollars and justify the value of the performance testing team, while improving performance can lead to increased conversions and revenue, making it a powerful and valuable metric for enterprise performance testing teams.
Before DevOps, the model for scaling performance engineering for large companies was the Performance Center of Excellence (PCoE). This model does not easily work for modern IT. How have companies had to change their approach to meet the challenges of scaling in the age of Agile and continuous delivery. How do they maintain standards across the Enterprise with highly autonomous teams? Find out in this episode.

🔍 Understanding the expertise of each team member is crucial for a successful performance testing team. Maximize strengths and train on weaknesses.
📈 Maintaining a standard across the board for performance engineering teams is crucial for ensuring consistent output and understanding within a large organization.
🔨 Building performance engineering skills onto a foundation of diverse backgrounds can lead to a strong and effective team.
💡 The desired outcome of performance testing is to have predictive performance results to allow stakeholders to understand how the application will behave under varying load conditions.
🛡️ You must constantly advocate to make sure that there was somebody championing performance along the way, as “non-functional” (operational) pieces often fall to the bottom of the priority list during software development.
🧠 The performance engineer can be the hero that saves the day when high-performing software is delivered, but also the one to blame when something snags in production.
📈 The value of a performance team can be justified by the business cases, such as avoiding a single incident that can pay for the team for the entire year.
