US Ambassador to SL eager to engage with local business community – The Island

Sysco LABS Sri Lanka, the captive innovation center of Sysco Corporation, the global leader in restoration, recently hosted the second edition of its “PerfUp” series, focusing on the role of artificial intelligence in driving the performance engineering.

The second PerfUp session shed light on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to improve the speed, accuracy and efficiency of many business processes and its application to improving software engineering practices. The session also elaborated on the potential of AI in improving engineering performance.

Asanka Vithanage, Associate Architect, Quality Engineering, Sysco LABS and Malith Jayasinghe, Vice President, Research and AI, WSO2 were the industry experts for this session.

Speakers explored topics such as how AI can help make better decisions about capacity, planning and scaling applications and the test environment, as well as analyzing performance results.

Sharing his expertise at the event, Asanga Vithanage said, “AI and ML capabilities can be used to optimize and improve performance testing platforms and practices. ML can be particularly useful in areas such as capacity planning, auto-scaling load generators, analyzing performance statistics, and predicting outcomes. Teams can start building performance execution platforms with current DevOps and observability capabilities and the data collected through these platforms can be used to build ML models. Subsequently, these models can help build smarter load generators. »

The PerfUp roundtables launched last year by Sysco LABS Sri Lanka aim to bring together Perf enthusiasts to develop best practices and share awareness on the performance engineering space and beyond.

Future PerfUp events aim to explore topics such as advanced performance engineering concepts, processes and tools, profiling, mobile performance engineering, in addition to success stories from leading engineering experts from industry performance.
