I have been updating my deck around performance of various solutions with regards to technical and business processes.
I collected over thirty (30) processes that range from rapid to those that require updates of an architecture.
I have refined the top high-value processes that can be deployed rapidly and with a listing of impacts.
I have put together an updated deck that lists these performance enhancements; along with some useful debugging processes; and a feasible method to document your complex business processes within the IM solution.
The only bottleneck in your solution stack should be database I/O or endpoint responses. Don't let any other tier/component prevent the solution from being under utilzed.
If these processes don't give you the performance you are looking for, it will be necessary to dive a bit deeper or perhaps review the solution architecture.
Edit 09/10/2015 - Added updated IM performance deck with strategic steps as well.
