Web Performance

Web performance is a critical priority for enterprises today, as users expect instant, secure and reliable access to online content, from any device and any location. Poor web performance such as slow page loads or content that is not optimized for mobile devices can have a lasting adverse impact on revenues, brand, and employee productivity. And the inability to get applications deployed quickly anywhere in the world can severely limit an enterprise's opportunities.
