Is Continuous Performance Testing reducing time spent on analysis?

This has been a passionate topic for me especially since the last couple of months where I have spent a good amount of time trying to justify that continuous performance testing cannot replace the amount of time we need to spend on analysis. And at times we have ended up learning the hard way.

Late last year I started working for a team that was responsible of transforming an on-premise monolith middle-layer into cloud based microservices with the biggest motivation being reduction in cost and delivering a resilient, highly available and reliable architecture. Who doesn’t love the sound of that until you understand the mammoth task it really is. A 21-gun salute to the architect(s)/designers who took up this task. I stand by you.
