Last month we held our quarterly roundtable event concentrating on website preparation for peak traffic. SciVisum’s roundtable events are popular with clients and partners, interested in learning from each other’s experiences.

The issue of peak preparation is a huge challenge for all organisations with a web presence so informed discussions as to how others manage this is hugely beneficial.

February’s breakfast meeting at St Paul’s Cathedral was attended by SciVisum clients and partners across multiple sectors. Watch our short video for an overview of February’s event and to hear what our clients had to say.

Gary Reynolds opened the meeting, sharing his extensive experience of Black Friday preparation as Head of ecommerce/applications at Dixons Carphone. You can learn more by watching Gary’s presentation below.

The challenges around the topic of optimising performance and particularly managing realistic load testing for peak traffic periods formed the basis for the morning’s discussions; from the best ways to create a realistic traffic profile, the difficulties in managing cross departmental collaboration on performance, the issues of testing in a live environment and the challenges in achieving load testing buy-in and budget before any significant performance issues or failures have taken place.
