Spike95 has been working with a leading online global fashion brand since our formation with a team of consultants leading a number of performance initiatives.
The platform’s complexity, the tools and technology in use as well as the high volume of transactions supported means that our delivery experience there is extremely relevant to any organisation needing to deliver change at pace in a large transaction volume scenario.
Our client is transforming the global fashion retail sector by implementing a digital platform that will flexibly enable global growth and provide new and innovative ways to interact and transact with their customers.
Our scope of delivery has been comprehensive, through the support of the creation of the overall strategy we have helped set out the model for delivering performance testing early in the lifecycle across a number of individual components and channels, driving out performance issues well in advance of the integrated state, saving time in root cause diagnosis.
From there we delivered the detailed plan for performance testing for a major re-architecting, moving from the legacy platform to a microservices, Azure based architecture. This involved:
We have also delivered custom courses and coaching to train developers in the art of performance testing and leveraged their skills early in the sprints to drive out issues earlier and embed a performance testing mindset within and across teams.
Doing performance testing early in the lifecycle has facilitated dramatic tuning improvements to individual services’ throughput and API response times.
