So who is watching? Who's keeping score ? Gomez is!
I'll eventually do a complete Gomez breakdown, but for now you should know that Gomez Benchmarking is keeping score. The old saying goes "You can't improve what you can't measure". You might not be measuring, but somebody else surely is.
According to a report by the Aberdeen Group entitled “The Performance of Web Applications — Customers Are Won or Lost in One Second” one second delays in response time significantly impact top business goals.
One second delays can reduce:
- page views by 11%
- conversions by 7%
- customer satisfaction by 16%
Who knows, maybe nobody will care that last quarter on-line sales were down by 2%, and that you ended up being the worst performer on this list. Still think you don't need a Performance Management Strategy ?
