In today’s world, every milli-second matters.
The faster the page loads, the higher the customer satisfaction levels.
As technology evolves, organizations that don’t update technology platforms in line with the changing customer needs will be left behind. Full Stack technologies continue to remain hot in 2019 along with AI.
Reducing HTTP requests, Minify and combine files, Reducing latency with CDN, use of asynchronous loading for CSS and JS files, Reducing server response times and hosting at high performance cloud environment are all part of the regular practices to achieve better performance. But, the choice of technology and architecture that runs the applications plays a crucial role in defining the future of enterprise applications.
Visitors expect the page to load in under 2 to 3 seconds and they tend to leave the site if it is taking more than 3 seconds. This explains how important it is for companies to focus on performance to remain competitive and attract new business. Google gives preference to sites that load fast in search engines and you can check your website score using Google PageSpeed insights . With the fast changing consumer preferences, it is very critical to load pages near instantaneously as that is the primary deciding factor to make your client facing online business succeed.
With the emergence of full-stack technologies like Angular and React, things have become more predictable. As these technologies are based on component-based architecture, they deliver faster performance with ease of scalability and having high-level design principles and vast community support towards driving better business value.
After years of experience working on Angular and React stack projects, it’s interesting to note that these technologies are evolving faster in line with market trends where user experience is king.
It’s very hard to entice customer to the application unless we present the user with real value-add in terms of what customer gets along with near instantaneous performance. In mission-critical enterprise, e-commerce and B2B applications, every second delay in load time causes significant loss in conversions.
There is a paradigm shift in users’ tendency to wait from seconds to milliseconds.
So, every millisecond matters in the online world especially if you want to create powerful universal applications.
