Let’s face it, users are impatient. They demand a blazingly fast experience and accept no substitutes. While the effects of poor performance are obvious, it makes one wonder about the relationship between client latency and the “perception of speed”. After all, the user can trigger many state change events (page load, submit a form, interact with a visualization, etc.) and all these events have an associated latency to the client. However, are certain types of latency more noticeable to the user then others?

Getting your applications to work properly over a Wide Area Network (WAN) is a complex task, and it is not likely to get easier any time soon. Trends such as data center consolidation, the advent of Web 2.0 applications, and the move to web-based application delivery have only served to increase complexity and slow user response times. Often, the result is sluggish application response and at worst, abandoned applications and shopping carts due to slow or failed web page loads. The good news is that you can do something to improve application performance over slow or congested WAN networks. An Application Delivery Network can accelerate your applications and help make sure they’re secure, fast, and available.
The demand for (and benefits of) web-based interfaces combined with an increasingly mobile and distributed workforce has exposed inefficiencies inherent in the browser, the network and its protocols, and the data center. These inefficiencies create performance problems for applications that continue to be magnified by emerging technologies like Web 2.0 and SOA. This White Paper details how F5's approach to Application Delivery Networking eliminates the bottlenecks inherent in browsers, in the network, and in the data.

For internal and external applications, Web API’s provide flexibility and unlock the value of your data and software. However, ongoing API development, deployment and delivery require extensive domain knowledge in operating an enterprise-class infrastructure. Without this expertise, scalability, reliability, and security are compromised.
Enterprises have long been battling the inherent performance limitations of Wide Area Networks (WANs) when delivering applications to remote offices. Caching emerged in the 1990’s as a potential way of addressing this problem, accelerating the performance of specific applications, such as web services, while reducing overall WAN traffic. While caching achieved reasonable success for a few short years, the market for these point products ultimately subsided as a result of several operational and functional limitations. Enterprises require an application acceleration solution that spans all types of traffic, one that is easy to manage, and 100% data coherency when supporting business-critical applications. This white paper will address these issues and offer a solution that addresses these enterprise requirements. The result is a complete solution for improved application delivery across a distributed enterprise environment.
By 2014, smartphones and tablets will put power in the pockets of a billion global consumers, including your employees and partners and customers. However, mobile is not simply another device for IT to support with a shrunken website or a screen-scraped application. Rather, mobile is the visible manifestation of a much broader shift to systems of engagement that marry physical context and digital intelligence to deliver service directly into a person's hands. This shift will add value and take cost out of every business service, workflow process, and business application. But mobile engagement will also require wholesale changes to your app design, service delivery, IT skills, technology assets, and even your business model. This report lays out a vision for mobile engagement and introduces the strategic elements developed further in The CIO's Mobile Engagement playbook.
