“Performance” is a loaded word that means different things to different people. To the Velocity tribe, it means web and mobile applications that are fast and durable. But to a marketing executive, it means conversion rates, ad impressions, and user retention. And to a product manager, CRO, or CEO, performance means something completely different.

But in order for for organizations to perform, all of these people have to collaborate. Collaboration begins with creating a shared language around “performance”. In this talk, Buddy will discuss ways the Velocity community can bring different sets of data together to lead these vastly different groups through a shared conversation about performance.

This keynote is sponsored by Soasta
