Performance and Scalability Consulting
As businesses evolve, achieving and maintaining the desired performance becomes a challenge. The growing client base and data size degrade the application’s performance. Massive scaling needs and high performance under extreme load are becoming the most important common denominators.
In today’s business for large-scale companies, even a few milliseconds (ms) of degradation in performance adversely affects the revenue.
Studies have shown that 40 percent of shoppers will wait no more than three seconds before abandoning a retail or travel site. A report by a leading e-commerce website states that every 100-ms increase in the page load time decreased sales by 1 percent, while a leading search engine website stated that a 500-ms increase in the search results display time reduced revenue by 20 percent. Hence, to meet the clients’ expectations and to stay ahead of the competition, software performance and scalability have become the prime requirements of every business.
The conventional or historically known good architecture and technology stacks fail to meet the performance and scalability expectations of today’s businesses. The process of addressing performance and scalability issues becomes very challenging due to the rapid pace of technology evolution, increasingly diverse technology stacks, and complex deployment environments. Providing solutions to these needs under the constraints of existing technology choices, architecture, and investment calls for specialized performance and scalability engineering expertise, along with a deep knowledge of various use case-specific technology stacks, middleware platforms, and compute alternatives.
