System and method for predicting performance of a software application over a target system is disclosed. The method comprises generating a benchmark suite such that benchmark indicates a combination of workloads applied over a set of standard software applications running on a source system. The method further comprises identifying a benchmark of the benchmark suite, wherein the benchmark has performance characteristics same as that of the software application. The method further enables remotely executing the set of standard software applications associated with the benchmark on the target system with the combination of workload as specified by the benchmark. The method further enables recording a performance of the set of standard software applications on the target system. Based on the performance of the standard software applications on the target system the performance of the software application is predicted.
