Palm Springs, CA |
Akamai Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:AKAM), the global leader in content delivery network (CDN) services, today unveiled several major advances that are intended to help solve key mobile performance challenges. The latest version of Akamai Ion, the company’s flagship Web Performance Solution, is designed to make it easier than ever to deliver compelling online experiences by leveraging the company’s new learning engine-based optimizations. Akamai will also enable developers to deliver near instant mobile app experiences by using its new software development kit (SDK).
The ability to deliver great mobile experiences is paramount to the success of online businesses. Consumers today expect fresh, fast, secure and engaging mobile experiences, regardless of their browser, app, location, device, or network. At the same time, due to unpredictable network conditions and the variety of devices used by customers, meeting these business requirements has never been more difficult or costly. In fact, according to a report released by Google, 53 percent of sessions are abandoned if content doesn’t load within three seconds.
Built on the Akamai Intelligent Platform, Akamai Ion is designed to help companies effectively reach and engage customers, prospects, employees, partners and suppliers, wherever and however they connect. The pressure to deliver great online experiences is higher than ever, across sites and apps. While most businesses have a basic understanding of what is required to optimize desktop experiences, they still struggle with the challenges mobile and cellular use cases present.
To help optimize web and mobile app experiences, the latest version of Akamai Ion now features the following new capabilities and benefits:
“ZALORA is a mobile-first company with the majority of our customer base engaging with us through our native fashion apps across South East Asia,” said Karthik Subramanian, CTO, ZALORA. “With Ion, and especially the new Mobile App Performance SDK, we are able to provide a much richer and more engaging mobile app experience for our customers. The performance reporting has also given us insight into the real experience that our app users have, enabling us to improve our application to suit our customers' needs better.”
“We believe this release of Ion marks the beginning of a new kind of powerful performance optimization – one that is powered by applying machine learning to real user data. Ion customers will be able to quickly and easily take advantage of these capabilities to address the demands of mobile users,” said Ash Kulkarni, senior vice president and general manager, Web Performance Business Unit, Akamai Technologies. “With more and more businesses adopting mobile apps to achieve greater audience engagement, Akamai’s new Mobile App Performance SDK is designed to help developers and app owners provide instant mobile app experiences that adapt in real-time to network conditions.”
The latest release of Akamai Ion is now available. Qualified Ion customers can begin taking advantage of these new capabilities now.
