Happy 10th Birthday iPhone – We’ve come so far, but have so far to go.

As a tech geek I was an early adopter of the iPhone. I joke around with my friends that I thought of it before anyone else. Way back in 2005, a few years before the release of the iPhone, I picked up an iPod, and said “One day this thing will be all glass and it will be colour, and we will do email, music and we’ll take photos with … read more

Comey Hearings: What digital experience management means to news media

Politics aside, today’s testimony by James Comey provides a fascinating look at how events can impact Digital Experience Management for news media organizations. I’m using the term Digital Experience Management (DEM) because the industry (Including Gartner and Forrester Research) has identified that Digital Experience needs to be considered and managed in a unique way. DEM draws the relationship between performance, availability, and end-user/consumer behavior when they interact with digital properties like … read more

Why “Try another browser” is no longer acceptable

Users can be demanding, and you won’t find a more demanding group than social savvy millennials. These punks have grown up believing they pretty much know everything, are never wrong, and demand immediate, accurate responses when interacting on social. If websites are slow or apps crash, it’s not just lost revenue – but also damage to your brand. Last year we ran a survey and found 51% of millennials would turn to … read more

Correlating JavaScript Errors with Slow CDN Performance

JavaScript Errors can happen for many different reasons: special behavior of certain browsers that weren’t tested; a real coding mistake that slipped through the delivery pipeline; poorly handled timeouts, and I am sure the list goes on. In this blog we discuss yet a different reason which was brought to my attention by Gerald Madlsperger, one of our long term Dynatrace AppMon super users: A CDN server issue resulting in … read more

What’s that? #whatsappdown?

I love the outcry that surrounds a digital service outage. It’s almost as though someone has turned off the oxygen for a few moments. So, it comes as no surprise that everyone went a bit crazy when Whatsapp went down for a few hours on Wednesday night. The usual scenario played out – people turned to social media to vent, and to laugh, and media were on the hunt for … read more

There are Single Page Application frameworks like AngularJS, React, Ember and others supporting this trend. If it works, everything is fine. But with this trend a JavaScript error can become a website killer. What does this mean? Below you can see the same page twice, but depending on the … read more

My SAP Hybris Digital Live Summit Takeaways

You can’t really say that I participated in SAP Hybris’ Digital Live Summit (#SAPHybrisLive) yesterday. It was a global event spread across multiple time zones – so yesterday doesn’t apply here. It was a unprecedented online event of a kind I’ve never before experienced. The event followed the sun, started in Singapore, continued in Munich, and finished in New York. 21 hours of live-streaming content and numerous on-demand content items made available for consumption … read more

Close Encounters with Out of This World Digital Experience

As technologists, we find ourselves in the middle of tumultuous times and radical change: cloud, containers, automation, artificial intelligence, mobility, the Internet of Things, cyberwarfare, digital transformation, and more! When the $&#! hits the fan, military strategists reference a mental framework called the OODA loop, to sort chaos into clarity. At Perform 2017, we were reminded of how customers continue to find clarity amidst today’s complexity by focusing on their … read more
