Free Online Cloud Service Enables Businesses to Compare Speed of Website
Performance Against Leading Competitor Sites
DETROIT, June 26, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation
(Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today 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 cloud service enables organizations to compare the
speed of their website's performance against leading competitor sites.
SpeedoftheWeb is available here.
As modern application delivery continues to add complexity at the edge
of the Internet, speed is one of the most important factors for
improving end-user experience on the web. Studies have shown that
improving website performance can lead to increased revenues and
reduced operating costs.
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. Compuware dynaTrace's dynamic
cloud-based architecture and patented PurePath Technology(R) provide
the deep Web 2.0 details behind the metrics.
"With end-user expectations higher than ever, the cost of poor website
performance is huge, both in terms of lost revenues and brand loyalty.
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," said Alois Reitbauer,
Compuware APM's Web 2.0 and Mobile Performance Expert and author of
Java Enterprise Performance. "To compete in today's complex web
environment, organizations need to ensure performance along every spot
in the web application delivery chain. Using SpeedoftheWeb, businesses
can see exactly how their website performs across the web application
delivery chain. This helps make an organization's website perform more
competitively, drive greater interactivity, increase user satisfaction,
adoption and loyalty."
To use the SpeedoftheWeb, the user simply submits the website URLs they
want tested. The service then produces a simple to read, speed
optimization report that provides actionable insight into performance
-- a high-level report with easy to read charts for business owners and IT
that compares site's performance to best-in-class;
-- results of the top three sites, plus the organizations own results for
each of the 15 metrics; and
-- an in-depth "session" file that can be shared with an organization's
development team that provides a deep code-level analysis of how their
site actually works and the ability to drill down to root-cause in
Compuware will demonstrate SpeedoftheWeb at the Velocity 2012
Conference, June 25-27 at booth #408.
