Understanding Challenges

Pronto+ sought to revolutionize its software development lifecycle by incorporating performance testing into its CI/CD pipeline. They aimed to enhance agility and adopt a DevOps mindset but lacked the necessary expertise and integration in their existing processes.

Solutions and Activities

Our performance engineering team worked closely with Pronto+'s internal team, leading the strategy for integrating performance testing into their development process. We utilized two open-source tools, JMeter and Taurus, for efficient and scalable adoption and application.

Beyond test automation, we focused on training Pronto+'s team in these tools, equipping them to independently conduct and expand the test suite. A key part of our collaboration involved aligning these performance tests with Pronto+'s CI/CD pipeline, using Azure DevOps Server (formerly Microsoft TFS), to facilitate seamless integration.

Our now Chief Quality Officer, Federico Toledo, played a pivotal role, providing leadership and strategic direction. This was instrumental in steering the initiative towards achieving our shared goals.

The project culminated in a comprehensive retrospective analysis to identify inefficient elements in their processes and encourage a culture of continuous enhancement.
