In this webinar, Gopal Brugalette of Nordstrom, and Tammy Everts of SOASTA explain how the different segments of an organization—business, product management and technology, come together to prepare a site for peak traffic.

They will discuss the inherent challenges and each group's contributions in addressing them. Strategies for load projections, testing, capacity planning and monitoring will be covered. They will also cover major misses in the past few years, so you can learn from them, and how Nordstrom turned to SOASTA to implement a solution that let them understand customer-perceived performance to obtain actionable data and meet expectations. You'll come away from this session with best practices for your own event readiness.
