Were your predictions for Super Bowl correct?

‎02-06-2012 12:11 PM - edited ‎09-24-2015 01:36 PM

I am sure if you live in New England you definitely predicted Patriots would win. On the other hand, if you are from New York, undoubtedly your prediciton was for the Giants. Just a few hours before the game you could still submit your predictions.

How about folks that are from other areas of the US? Did any of you guess correctly?


Well, I am originally from Brazil and it seems to me that the Super Bowl  is for the US what the Soccer World Cup final is for Brazil. We could even compare it to a soccer game between Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The atmosphere is fun and at the same time tense. All because we want OUR team to be the winner!


It is a clear “what if” scenario! Only one team can win!!! I will tell you, my heart beats stronger at those times! I guess yours too. This is an unpredictable situation!


On the other hand when doing performance testing you can predict! The plan is to predict, as much as we can, how the application will perform before moving on to production.


Unfortunately, often times, neither the money nor the time are there to allow us to perform the test the way we would like. Sometimes we run out of resources and infrastructure.  Then we get frustrated with the impossibility to predict, which REALLY makes my heart beat faster!


The results may sometimes be what we had expected, but most of times they are not. The amount  of stress and money we may need in order to fix performance issues are huge compared to the cost of testing performance.


Anyway, HP is about to give you some great news! Hear how HP will help you lower your stress and your load testing costs!

Well, I predicted a come from behind win by the Giants as they had momentum on their side and I'm pleased to see the momentum of this LoadRunner news!!   It's a good time to be a Load Tester -- plenty of work -- as more and more of the world's 7 Billion people get mobile, get social and conduct their daily lives on line, and now there is amazing choice in how to get testing capabillities --own the software, get user days or via the Cloud-- good stuff!
