One of the most often asked questions to a Performance Engineering team over many years is "What value do you bring to the Business?"


This webinar will delve into this topic from three different viewpoints:


    1. The Performance Engineer
    2. The Performance Engineering Group Manager

    3. The Business Development Leader


We will be exploring the different roles and perspectives each of these have on what the real value Performance Engineering is bringing to their organizations and business units.  We will also be discussing how these values have changed over the years and what the current situation is for the near term.  


Polling will be utilized as well to get a feel for how you and other participating companies feel about actual value, perceived value, and competitive advantage that Performance Engineering brings to Business outcomes.
