The “Mother's Me Week” Study discovered that 40 percent of US moms have been disappointed on Mother’s Day, and half of American moms would buy themselves a gift if they were disappointed on Mother’s Day, with nearly 1 in 5 doing so on Mother’s Day (16%), 14 percent the Monday after, and 14 percent the week after. SOASTA commissioned the online research, conducted by Harris Poll, to alert retailers about the need for continuous testing and performance analytics for their online stores to ensure a quality user experience – whether it’s for key shopping events like Mother’s Day or new emerging shopping trends like Mother’s Me Week ...

The world we monitor has changed. This change all starts with shifts in software development, the Internet, and the expectations of end users — each evolving rapidly and because of each other. Software development has moved from one development team building end-to-end applications for a mostly homogenous set of users to many teams assembling software components into an application for a more diverse set of users. Now, they have high expectations for software performance, led by the prevalence of consumer applications such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, where everything is fast and mostly seamless. It is the confluence of these shifts that puts API performance front and center ...

Speedier network pipes that carry more information faster than ever before can be a windfall for enterprises looking to derive more business value from their underlying infrastructure. But there's a nefarious lining in there – when things speed up, they can get harder to manage. Packets carrying crucial application information and content whizzing by in a blur can pose real visibility challenges IT pros haven't encountered before. Network and application performance management is undergoing sweeping changes thanks to not only faster networks but also migration to the cloud. And the implication for application and performance management are huge. For the Network Instruments State of the Network Global Study 2015, we recently surveyed more than 300 CIOs, IT directors and network engineers, to get their take on how the migration to higher capacity and faster networks has affected their day-to-day duties monitoring application performance. What we found is ...

Business networks today seemingly have more intense loads placed on them every day. And nowhere is this more evident this time of year than the annual March Madness NCAA basketball tournament. What was once a small-screen, low-resolution video is now available in full HD, potentially taxing network resources. With employees from all over the organization wanting to stream the games online, organizations run the risk of their business-critical applications suffering in performance. To determine corporate attitudes toward the situation, Riverbed surveyed employees about who in their organization will be streaming games and what their policies are toward the situation. The survey uncovered that employees of different age and seniority level had varied attitudes about this use of company resources ...

Mobile and desktop applications have become the new battleground for brand loyalty, according to a global study commissioned by CA Technologies. In today’s software-driven world, where consumers are more discerning about what they expect from applications, the reality is that businesses that fail to deliver a positive application experience risk losing as much as a quarter of their customer base. The study – Software: the New Battleground for Brand Loyalty – surveyed 6,770 consumers and 809 business decision makers to uncover how each group thought various characteristics of applications impacted user experience, and how well different industries delivered on those characteristics. Consumers identified three that have the biggest impact on the consumer experience ...
