1.10 Summary

Good performance is crucial to the success of a software system or a system controlled by software. Poor performance can doom a system to failure in the marketplace and, in the case of safety-related systems, endanger life, the environment, or property. Performance engineering practice contributes substantially to ensuring the performance of a product and hence to the mitigation of the business risks associated with software performance, especially when undertaken from the earliest stages of the software lifecycle.
