Description

A commonly-held notion among many business leaders is that their IT and DevOps departments are little more than a cost center – a necessary evil that only adds to the cost of running the company.

But if managed properly and provided with the right tools to succeed, a DevOps team can turn a company’s web performance into a differentiator that elevates them above the competition. Research has shown that internet users have little patience for slow or unresponsive websites, and when they encounter such problems, are likely to shop/search/browse elsewhere. And if they encounter it more than once, they’re unlikely to return.

Therefore, by providing users with a more efficient and enjoyable online experience than others within their industry, a company can gain valuable market share over their competitor.

Mehdi Daoudi, CEO and co-founder of Catchpoint Systems, will show how a business can use their DevOps initiatives to increase their user base and grow their revenue streams. On top of that, he’ll show how to optimize your costs by saving time and money through improved efficiency.
