Too Slow to Fail: How Users Really React to the Speed of Your Site

At Akamai Web Performance we collect huge amounts of data for our customers.

Akamai mPulse and Data Science allow us to apply data science to performance and user behavior data; from this we can extract valuable insight about how users really react to the quality of their web experiences.

Simon has been working on a series of new web performance analyses and visualizations, in this talk he will describe the goals of this analysis and show some of the exciting results discovered so far. For example: how does the performance of your advertising partner impact conversion rate? Do mobile users prefer rich imagery or a faster experience? We are starting to use this insight to automatically apply optimizations, you can use it now to improve user experience.

You will leave this talk with a new-found passion for web performance and an insight into the latest trends in data visualizations.
