Top Factors That Impact Application Performance 2016 – Part 4




“Application architecture – which is part science and part art. There are definitely MANY factors we see impact performance, everything from infrastructure to poor coding to a badly designed database. But fixing these implementation aspects of a poorly architected application can be like chasing your tail, and bad design decisions can haunt you for the life of the application. Applications are complex, often comprised of shared services and deployed on shared infrastructure. The science is in understanding the relationships and interactions between the various components, and the art is in doing so without sacrificing user experience.” – Dave Murphy | SVP Delivery, SOASTA
