There is a growing necessity in assessing and streamlining enterprise applications against the desired performance characteristics from the end users' perspective. There are significant numbers of commercial tools and performance measuring algorithms designed for mentioned purpose. However, from the process framework perspective, the contribution is limited in the software industry. This paper discusses an overview to performance testing process framework that employs at Zone24x7 in various business dynamics such as Banking, Mobile and Retail industries. An in-depth analysis was carried out within associated clientele to construct the proposed framework with the aim of identifying value preposition that it derives. In addition, deciding performance objectives, designing appropriate strategies, execution and analyzing test results will be discussed along with the key benefits to the clients who are keen on conducting performance testing to achieve immediate operational excellence hence the sustainability dimension in long run. In conclusion, the paper will further discuss about the potential domains that could adopt this proposed performance testing process framework to gain before mentioned benefits.
