Session Summary for Attendees:  The move of the EPM suite to the cloud has brought speedy performance and speedier deployments, but not without giving up visibility to the back end of the system. While cloud instances perform great, there are times when developers need to validate that the system can handle what they're about to throw at it—at scale. What's performance like when 100 concurrent users execute retrieves? Do you have enough OCPU to add another app? Or do you need more? This session will seek to answer those questions and more by covering multiple techniques to simulate concurrency, the pros and cons of each, and pitfalls to avoid when implementing them.
