Back Office: Optimizing Your Web Apps
Customer demand for high-performance and feature-rich Web applications will increase as high-speed networks for wired and wireless access improves and expands. Consumers are less likely to be patient and settle for a sub-optimal Web site.
In a new study by the Aberdeen Group, "Optimizing the Performance of Web Applications," 60 percent of best-in-class enterprises said the top pressure driving Web optimization initiatives is focused on customers. Best-in-class enterprises, though, are not as focused on improving the overall end-user experience compared to other enterprises, mainly because they already have that area under control. Profitability is also a top pressure driving optimization initiatives.
