Working with customers from around the world has been a great learning opportunity both personally and professionally. I’ve had the great pleasure of working with different types of individuals and deal with various challenges across the SDLC. However there is so much  more to learn and with the proliferation of new application platforms, SaaS platforms, concepts like DevOPS, Mobile Performance, Cloud Performance there is always an opportunity to keep learning and keep growing.

Personal experiences over the years have fortunately led me to a good understanding of the challenges faced by Performance Architects, Technical Architects, Performance Engineers and Performance Testers responsible for managing Systems Performance across the SDLC. Some of the most common challenges include:

  • Lack of affordable tools for –
    • Non Functional Requirements Modelling
    • Workload Modelling
    • Performance Modelling & Forecasting
    • Performance Testing
    • Capacity Planning & Capacity Management
  • Lack of documented processes for –
    • Performance Requirements Gathering
    • Performance Modelling
    • Performance Testing
    • Capacity Planning & Capacity Management

If you are passionate about Systems Performance / Proactive Performance Management and are keen to address any of the issues mentioned above please reach out to me over email. You will have significant experience in one of the above domains and also potentially have some development experience.

The tools we are building will be proprietary but the processes/standards we evolve will be Open and made available to everyone through PEBoK (See our initiatives section). The areas I would like to specifically focus on include:

  • Building Performance Modelling and Forecasting tools
  • Building Capacity Planning & Capacity Management tools
  • Building Non Functional Requirements Modelling & Workload Modelling tools
  • Creating a Body Of Knowledge (BoK) that addresses the lack of a framework for Systems Performance Management across the SDLC

If you are passionate about what you do, humble in your outlook and keen to make a difference feel free to reach out to me for a chat. You can reach me at trevor at practical performance analyst dot com.
