Performance Testing of a Sportsbook
Performance testing has become an integral part of the software development lifecycle. Right through the planning to post deployment maintenance of your Sportsbook, application performance drives the development of better solution, product release & maintenance. End user satisfaction is the primary goal of your Sportsbook solution which is only met by high performing and error free product.
Performance testing is very crucial specially when users access to live streamed content and push messages featuring new odds and offers. Enabling customer to access more than 40,000 pre-match, in-play and specialty markets
The key scenarios that should be Performance tested are:
Mission to support a performance driven development
Software Performance Testing should never be an afterthought. A performance bottleneck identified during live or production by end user can damage not only the transaction but also reputation in the market. Application owners, stakeholders, developers, and testers should consider performance as a key aspect at every stage of product development life cycle and work accordingly to identify key performance bottlenecks earlier than later.
The mission is to test application performance early and often in the development effort, and both functional and performance validation should happen in same cycle / sprint / development stage. This approach of early and continuous performance testing can help organization develop higher quality software in lesser time while reducing the development costs. Performance of the application is directly proportional to the design and integrity of the product; hence should be considered to start at the early phases of the development lifecycle.
Performance testing of Sportsbook hosted on Cloud
Similar to web application hosted on private cloud, performance testing of application hosted in cloud are to be thoroughly tested. Performance of application hosted in cloud may come with additional complexities like license dependencies, security protocols, firewalls and many other legal and technical challenges. The major challenge of performance testing a cloud based application is geo-graphical operation of site and operating the performance testing solution over firewall or within the cloud.
