Website performance

In today’s interconnected world, website performance directly impacts business performance. Consumers and business users expect their web experience to be flawless every time. Fast responses, online video and personalized content are the gold standard in website performance, and users expect sites to respond instantly on any device no matter where they are. Employees are using their own mobile devices and expect the access to data and web application performance to be as fast as the consumer sites they visit.

To satisfy these expectations, enterprises need sophisticated optimization solutions for improving website performance. That’s where Akamai can help.
