Our client was under pressure to deliver a large amount of change in response to a new wave of digital banks and nimble competition, with licensing restrictions coming down and the fintech landscape booming.
The historic accrual of acquisitions and technologies going back to the mainframes that have underpinned banks for years meant that the landscape was far more complex, under greater change control and coordination than that for start-ups.
The digital teams were evolving to meet new demands and would need to transition away from an older performance testing centre of excellence model into something leaner with the skills and expertise to deliver performance engineering.
Spike95 were engaged to conduct a performance testing review which would also provide a recommendations roadmap to shape the future vision.
A thorough assessment was carried out to understand delivery processes, non-functional requirements, assets and collateral, tooling, environments and infrastructure, test data management, reporting and monitoring.
