Performance Benchmarks

Kirk Pepperdine has some things to say about performance benchmarks. He notes that:
  • performance is a key part of usability
  • developers and testers often neglect performance requirements or treat them as an afterthought
  • functionally complete demos create a bad impression if they perform slowly
In a future entry, I'll argue that performance requirements are really subsumed by usability requirements.
