ECM Load Test Strategies Examined

ECM Load Test Strategies – Say “risk of ECM project failure” in a board room and you quickly discover that the most scary scenario is a performance related failure discovered after a go-live deployment to production, yet it happens all the time. That means that some part of the ECM application slows down under the production scale load to the point of it not being functional. The damage is inflicted on the budget because your team did not catch it before go-live. The impact may be a roll-back and redeploy which may take a month or more, depending on the project. Given that ECM deployments have a project team of typically 10 to 20 resources paid between $65 to $125 /hr that can be over $200,000 in cost plus the impact to the business.
