Organisations rely on their websites more and more and applications to be fast, reliable and secure. Users will leave if pages don’t load as fast as they expect them to. They will abandon their shopping carts and may become frustrated. Frustrated users aren’t likely to make purchases or become customers. Ultimately this may negatively affect the bottom line. High performing websites are critical to an optimized business experience.
What do we mean by “high performance?” On a truly high performance website, everything loads fast. That includes images, pages and other page elements.How do you achieve high performance in your applications then? There are several strategies that can be executed. You can learn about the detailed strategies here.
Measuring website and application performance is core to success as well. It’s important to establish a baseline when assessing website and application performance, and equally important to track and observe data over time. That’s where the more sophisticated monitoring, instrumentation, and graphing of data come in to ensure that a reliable baseline is found and that daily, weekly, or monthly fluctuations in performance are detected. These fluctuations can be correlated with events, such as server activity — traffic levels, file back-ups, or other activities in the server environment.
