    EPM Load Testing: Why and when do I need it?

    April 8th, 2019

    Load testing allows you to test your EPM system to determine how it performs while being used by several users doing various activities in the system simultaneously. It can also be used to determine how much load the system can handle before it starts slowing down and eventually failing.

    A load test works by parameterising and automating the activity of multiple concurrent users doing concurrent activities from various points of view, thus simulating a month-end close or a budgeting cycle.

    Using load testing, iterative tests and tuning can be carried out in a controlled way so that a certain performance level can be assured and the system’s behaviour is predictable when the time comes to run the system in full production mode with real users.
