Web experience

Users today expect a fast and flawless web experience every time they engage with your brand. Whether it’s a consumer website, business app, mobile site or mobile app, users want a high-quality web experience regardless of their device, location, browser or network. Failure to deliver fast and engaging web application or website performance can have significant negative impact on revenues, engagement and costs.

But even as user expectations continue to rise, the difficulty of delivering an exceptional web experience is growing as well. Applications are more complex than ever, file sizes (especially for online video) are consuming more bandwidth and device proliferation shows no sign of slowing.
