The unprecedented circumstances of the past several weeks have pushed organizations to accelerate their digital transformation at lightning speed. Many are looking to leverage complex new technologies like IoT and blockchain.
As with any new technology, questions remain unanswered: how would applications be used in IoT and blockchain, and what would performance testing them look like?
With billions of IoT devices interacting with big data architecture and communicating with traditional end-user applications (browsers or mobile devices), how will the central IoT platforms perform? Certain IoT implementations must be performance tested because humans’ lives are literally at stake (healthcare, self-driving cars). Testing IoT platforms introduces new protocols, extreme load tests in addition to traditional web/mobile testing.
Blockchain is better known as the technology that enables the existence of cryptocurrency, but it usually helps to secure data (insurance, media, logistics, etc.). That is why blockchain is going to be part of our modern architecture from here on, and companies will have to take it into consideration as part of their digital transformation. Migrating current applications into a blockchain network will require testing that might be unfamiliar to traditional performance engineers.
During this webinar, you learned how to:
- Blockchain basics and the different possible testing approaches — and constraints
- How to test earlier and be more efficient to validate an IoT platform
- Which KPIs you should focus on when it comes to IoT and blockchain
