Not so many years ago organizations tried to fix bad user experience with investments in infrastructure. Hardware provider promised that brand-new CPUs, more RAM, and fast storage would fix the annoying performance hotspots. Obviously, this was just in rare cases a good advice. In this post, I will write about top performance hotspots and how speed is unlocking opportunities across all layers.
New technology is popping up almost overnight, and the complexity of our applications is increasing. Virtualization, artificial intelligence, microservices, and machine learning are just the beginning, and there is much more to come. Some people argue that performance is the most important feature.
The best business application struggles from time to time, responds slow to user queries or is temporarily not available. Organizations learned that monitoring of critical components is the way to go. In this post, I will explain benefits and drawbacks involved in this development.
Users speed expectations are on the rise and companies started investing in the optimization of their services and business processes. Outstanding players such as Amazon understood that the competition is high and bad user experience leads quickly to growing abandon rates. When those frustrated users start to spend their money on other, more reliable websites, it’s already too late.
