Suresh Kannan Duraisamy, Bryce Bass and Sai Mukkavilli, Georgia Southwestern State University, USA


In the last couple of decades, the software development process has evolved drastically, starting from Big Bang to Waterfall to Agile. The primary driver for the evolution of the software was the “Speed of Delivery” of the Software Product which has significantly accelerated from months to less than weeks and days. For IT (Information Technology) Organizations to be successful, they inevitably need a strong technology presence to roll out new software and features as quickly as possible to their customer base. The current user generation tends to use technology to maximum potential and is always striving to keep up with the new trends. The main subject is for the organizations to be ready with their Speed of Delivery strategy adapting to all technology modernization initiatives like CICD (Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment), Agile, DevOps, and Cloud so that there are negligible customer friction and no risks to their Market shares,. The aim of this paper is to compare the performance testing in every stage of the agile model to the traditional end testing. The results of the corresponding testing phases are presented in this paper.
