    Optimize Performance

    Any business that generates revenues online is a global business and needs to consider the tools available to make the internet a competitive advantage. Knowing the real-time state of your public internet performance is critical in the highly competitive global business environment. Where are the internet latency issues? What is global availability and reachability like? How is the real-world performance of end users? Understanding your connections – through insights and having controls to improve performance — is the only way to optimize performance and mitigate risks in your network.

    Slow is the new downtime. In fact, in 2015 Amazon calculated that a page load slowdown of just one second could cost $1.6 billion in sales each year. Most businesses are investing in performance tools within their enterprises, but they should also look outside their firewalls to understand how the internet affects each and every customer connection. Where does Amazon's symbolic one-second delay come from? More often than not, it comes from internet performance.

A massive migration to the cloud has been underway for the better part of the past decade, but the number of enterprises with hybrid configurations may be reaching a tipping point. IDC research suggests that by the end of 2016, more than 65 percent of IT enterprises will have adopted a hybrid cloud configuration and spending on infrastructure for cloud environments will reach $38.2 billion. And it's clear from Dyn's proprietary research that every company in the Fortune 100 has a cloud asset. Hybrid cloud environments reduce costs, increase flexibility and scalability and greatly improve network performance. But IT executives need the right tools to monitor and control their cloud infrastructure to maximize these positive impacts and mitigate security threats.

In this slideshow, Gary Sloper, vice president of global solutions engineering at Dyn, has identified eight reasons for the enterprise to improve visibility and control into their global internet and cloud assets.
