“Amazon – ranked No. 1 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide – continues to grow market share at a record pace. If other online retailers are going to compete effectively with the web leader, they need to do everything they can to give customers the best online shopping experience possible. That includes making sure their websites perform properly,” said Stefany Zaroban, Director of Research at Internet Retailer. “Our analysis of performance data provided by Dynatrace reveals that Top 500 merchants’ websites load on average in 4.48 seconds. Some experts say the optimal load time is 3.00 seconds, so this suggests Top 500 merchants have some work to do.”

“We are honored that so many of the world’s top retailers rely on Dynatrace to deliver top-notch digital experiences to their customers who have increasingly high expectations for speed and availability,” said John Van Siclen, CEO at Dynatrace. “Brand loyalty is fragile and must be earned – and amazing digital experiences on both web and mobile are core to that success. With the cloud and mobile, e-commerce is getting increasingly more complex so we are proud to be the digital performance platform of choice for so many household brands.”
