When trying to understand what the user’s real experience was on your website, you must look at technical key indicators like errors and performance perceived during the user’s session. Single page applications (SPA) come with new challenges that need to be mastered.

JavaScript errors are having big impacts and performance metrics need to factor in SPA loading and navigation behavior. Besides these technical factors you need to consider the critical entry- and exit actions. You need to easily compare the overall experience of your users using just mobile browsers but also desktop, tablets or mobile applications or multiple channels.

Get meaningful metrics for single page applications

Relying solely on W3C metrics is problematic; especially for single-page applications. Dynatrace Visually complete allows you to assess the real, visual user experience of modern applications. It monitors user experience from application launch to start screen as well as user clicks and screen changes while working with the app.

Get better insights into your single-page applications: Visually complete points out exactly how long your users have to wait until they can start to interact with your app (4.32 s) DOM change is important to understand how the app loads, but it doesn't translate directly into user experience (2.41 s) Don't get fooled by traditional metrics like Action Duration: even though it may indicate a very fast web app (489 ms), this doesn't necessarily mean that the app is loading fast from your user's perspective.

Manage your CDN and Third Party providers

Up to 2/3 of your single-page application content is coming from your Third Party or CDN providers. They have a bigger impact on your applications than your own datacenter. Constantly seeing the errors and performance issues is key to understand the impact of them on your users and business results.

You probably depend on more third party providers than you realize.
