Performance Testing - Is it Important?

The Need for Good Performance Will Never Go Away.

Either in an on-premise or cloud-based situation, performance testing is always needed. Because of the need for good performance in software, the ISTQB Performance Testing Certification is always a popular choice.

Performance is a major factor in software quality. Let's face it, you can have the best software that is functionally correct, but if it doesn't deliver the needed performance it might as well be a failure.

Performance Testing Certification teaches evaluation of functional suitability, usability, and other quality characteristics under conditions of load. Not only does it include the web-based domain where the end-user is the focus, but it also goes beyond that to different application domains with a variety of system architectures. With such a wide range of applications, ISTQB Performance Testing Certification gives you many career choices and can be a powerful tool for your career.

Future-Proof Your Career with Multiple Testing Skills

ISTQB Foundation Level is only an entry point to software testing. If you stop after Foundation Level, you could quickly be passed by other testers (see the recent Testing Tiers™ points gainers) and not keep up with new advances in software testing.

How do you keep your testing skills sharp after Foundation Level? We highlighted Performance Testing above, but there are many testing skill areas, so it can be difficult to decide!

That's why we created the software testing road map. It makes it easy to visualize your career path and learn about the different testing skill options. See the full version of the software testing road map. Then read the short descriptions and click on a type of testing that interests you. It's easy and is the first step toward future-proofing your career.
