Web application performance

Whether you’re developing a web service for customers or deploying software online for internal use, neglecting web application performance can be a costly mistake. Great web application performance leads to increased customer engagement and loyalty—or employee productivity in the enterprise—and helps foster a positive brand image. Poor web application performance, on the other hand, results in failed transactions, user frustration, and ultimately, user abandonment of the service. This is why more companies today are taking advantage of web app monitoring solutions that enable them to continually evaluate and optimize the performance and user experience of the applications in which they’ve invested.
