DETROIT — Compuware Corp., Tuesday launched SpeedoftheWeb.org, a new free online cloud service that helps web application and site owners increase the speed of their most important web properties. This enables organizations to compare the speed of their website’s performance against leading competitor sites.
SpeedoftheWeb provides a series of industry-relevant indexes with categorized collections of 1,000 of the world’s most trafficked websites — as ranked by Alexa(R) and Compuware Gomez(R) benchmarks. Some of the industry indexes include: finance, healthcare, travel, retail, media, sports and more. Web owners can easily compare themselves against these rankings, and provide their web application and website development teams with detailed performance data and recommendations on how to speed up website performance.
SpeedoftheWeb offers 15 key performance indicators (web performance optimization KPIs), in-line expert recommendations and immediate action paths to easily improve web performance.
“With end-user expectations higher than ever, the cost of poor website performance is huge, both in terms of lost revenues and brand loyalty,” said Alois Reitbauer, Compuware APM’s Web 2.0 and Mobile Performance Expert and author of Java Enterprise Performance. “End-users are showing less patience for slow-performing websites and expect their applications to perform at lightning speed. Even a slight reduction in application performance can determine if a customer will return to a website to do business again.”
