Ask yourself

Can my current system, at both the software and hardware levels, support the required business growth rates?

How will the system respond if our business experiences two, three, or tenfold growth this year?
What can we anticipate regarding changes in system load after a rollout?

Get the answers

The most effective approach to have these questions answered is through capacity planning and development of a capacity plan.

Create capacity plan

Developing a comprehensive capacity plan is the first step in ensuring that your business can effectively scale to meet its demands.

This plan will serve as a roadmap for aligning your resources with your growth objectives, helping you avoid potential performance bottlenecks and disruptions.

Implement the process

It is essential to establish a dedicated team within your organization tasked with overseeing the implementation of this capacity plan.
This team will be responsible for ensuring that your business maintains the necessary productivity levels to support its growth trajectory.

Additionally, they will continuously evaluate the relevance and effectiveness of the capacity plan, making adjustments as needed to keep pace with your evolving business needs.

Load Testing vs Stress Testing
Oct 10, 2019

Load testing and stress testing are both means of performance testing, so it’s not easy to draw a line of distinction between the two. However, while load testing assesses the software performance under some expected load (regular or peak), stress testing pushes the bar beyond peak conditions to determine the system’s load capacity as well […]
