There is a digital transformation underway powered, in part, by the adoption of mobile. In this shifting landscape of increasingly fickle and distracted consumers, maintaining competitive advantage is more important than ever.

Competitive positioning is a relative art, defined differently for every business. But what's absolute is the science of digital customer experience and human behavior.

  • A 500 millisecond delay results in significant user frustration
  • A 250 millisecond difference in user experience between competitors is all it takes to create advantage (or loss)

The reality is that faster pages drive higher engagement, but getting there takes comparative vigilance and constant feedback to development and digital teams.

So what signals should you watch to stay ahead? How can you create meaningful comparisons to other web and mobile experiences? Tune in for ideas you can use to out-maneuver your digital competitors with front-end performance intelligence, like:

  • Comparative page construction analysis
  • Objectively evaluating feature performance
  • How to benchmark third-party component performance
  • A/B testing dev and prod
  • Understanding geographic differences
