Validate the Business Impact of CDNs
Web application performance is critical for e-commerce companies to achieve the maximum volume of conversions.
Amazon (AMZN) has shown that every 500 milliseconds of latency cost them 1 percent in sales, and Walmart (WMT) reports conversion rates rise 2 percent for every second of reduced load time. While many e-commerce brands are currently leveraging solutions that aim to optimize the user experience, it's not always easy to understand their effectiveness of these initiatives in relation to them adding actual value to the enterprise.
Cloud-based user-experience optimization platform Yottaa, however, has released an A/B testing methodology to provide some insight in this regard, enabling enterprises to illustrate the business value they receive from content delivery networks and other Web performance optimization investments. Through Yottaa’s ValidateITSM, enterprises can split traffic in real-time and verify the immediate and long-term business benefits of optimizing their Web applications.
“The e-commerce industry often cites how even milliseconds of latency can impact business performance, but enterprise IT departments often find it difficult, if not impossible, to prove the benefit that their efforts have on customer satisfaction and top-line growth,” said Vick Viren Vaishnavi, President and CEO of Yottaa. “By supplementing traditional Application Performance Management tools that only provide a view of application latency spots and performance, ValidateIT provides enterprises with complete visibility into how optimized user engagements can truly drive dramatic business benefits.”
