Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way.

In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.
