Web application performance

In a world where consumers expect a fast and flawless web experience, web application performance has a significant impact on competitiveness. When you deliver a great website performance, you can engage users more successfully, increase conversions, improve the value of user relationships and build greater customer loyalty. When web application performance suffers, however, your customers and users will quickly migrate to other sites or find what they need from your competitors.

But ensuring superior web application performance is getting more difficult by the day. The complexity of delivering dynamically generated content makes it harder to load pages quickly enough to retain users’ attention. The proliferation of connected devices makes it more difficult to deliver content optimized for the user’s situation. And with users connecting to your site from a wide variety of networks with varying connection speeds, it’s tough to ensure the kind of speed that users demand on every interaction.

Akamai can help. Our integrated suite of website and web application performance solutions makes it easy to deliver instant, reliable and secure access to sites and applications – on any device, from any location.
