We hope you find this section interesting and helpful in your quest to learn more about SPE (Systems Performance Engineering) across the SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle). At this point Authors Corner includes sections on the following authors:
- Bob Wescott’s (LinkedIn), is semi-retired after a 30 year career in high tech that was mostly focused on computer performance work. Bob has done professional services work in the field of computer performance analysis, including: capacity planning, load testing, simulation modeling, and web performance. He has even written a book on the subject: The Every Computer Performance Book. Bob’s fundamental skill is explaining complex things clearly. He has developed and joyfully taught customer courses at four computer companies and I’ve been a featured speaker at large conferences. Bob’s goal is to be of service, explain things clearly, teach with joy, and lead an honorable life. His goal, at this stage of the game, is to pass on what we’ve learned to the next generation.
- Dr. Jayanta Choudhury (LinkedIn), is a technology researcher at TeamQuest Corporation, focusing on capacity planning and performance modeling for IT resource optimization. He finished graduate school with a PhD degree from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, in 2008. He has been working in the area of capacity planning and performance modeling of computing systems since 2007. His research interests include performance modeling, capacity planning, operations research, high performance computing, algorithm development, data analysis, numerical analysis, and numerical solution of PDEs, ODEs and their applications. He focuses to understand the fundamental principles behind the algorithms and methodologies used in the area of capacity planning and performance modeling.
- Dr. Rajesh Mansharamani (LinkedIn) currently runs his own consulting outfit and is currently based out of Mumbai, India. Rajesh is an IIT (1988) graduate with a double degree from the the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Rajesh started his career at the TCS (www.tcs.com) Research Center in Pune and then moving onto head the TCS Performance Engineering Research Center as it’s Vice President. His professional career spans two decades working with clients around the globe
architecting and building high performance solutions. Rajesh specializes in Performance Requirements Analysis, Architecture & Design for Performance, Performance Benchmarking and Testing Strategies, Capacity Planning, and Applied Performance Modelling. You can reach Rajesh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Dr. Tom Wilson (LinkedIn) is a scientist who specializes in system performance for highly critical realtime systems. Dr. Wilson aims to better understand all of the performance domains without getting too involved in specific technologies. Dr Tom Wilson by profession is a Performance Scientist, Mission Analyst at Lockheed Martin and is based out of Orlando, Florida. Dr.Wilson provides analysis for performance (workload analysis, capacity planning) at the user-level which are called mission analysis. He also works on mission activities which require derivation to the system level.
