How to ensure your e-commerce website is up to your expectation.
For any e-commerce website ensuring fast and reliable performance is must with the superior user experience for the client's mobile and website. E-commerce websites have to face huge competition when it is about attracting customers to your own website. Seconds of delay on your website can have a significant impact on your website.
With technology developing at such a rapid pace, businesses must ensure that they aren't left behind by not meeting user expectations and consumer trends with fast and reliable performance across mobile and web. Legacy infrastructure is failing to keep up with the increasingly fast developments in technology that are taking place within e-commerce. Businesses need to deliver a seamless experience across all channels with a consistent message throughout multiple touch points. To convert customers into loyal followers – in busy periods and beyond – e-commerce firms must consider not just the desirability, but the accessibility and speed of access to their online products.
Scalability is just as important, particularly during busy sales periods. For some e-commerce retailers, predicting spikes and dips in traffic is a relatively easy task, particularly around times like Christmas and New Year. However, e-commerce traffic isn't always that predictable, so businesses must be prepared for traffic spikes on a weekly – or even daily – basis. With performance needing to be maintained through any spikes in traffic, e-commerce companies require technology and architecture that allow for faster data access and application performance. But nothing hurts an e-commerce business more than site failure, so highly available hosting solutions should be at the top of any priority list. Any site that remains available while others experience outages will reap the rewards of new business. By leveraging a globally distributed cloud platform, which reduces the need to move data, e-commerce companies can be assured of high availability while minimizing transmission costs and improving the client experiences. Such an approach also removes bottlenecks, key for periods of high consumption, and allows for virtualization and, therefore, scalability. And should any issues arise, businesses should have a fail-over option that enables dynamic content delivery even when the origin site is unavailable.
