A software scalability analysis tests a software application, measuring its ability to scale up or scale out in terms of its non-functional capability. Through this analysis, software quality analysts also test the application’s performance and reliability:
- Performance testing: how the application performs in terms of responsiveness and stability under a high user environment
- Reliability testing: the application’s ability to function under a high user environment for an extensive amount of time
The software scalability analysis proposes ways for you and your IT provider to scale up the application, allowing the number of users to increase while eliminating the risk of losing productivity.
