Web Application Accelerator Product Brief - Application delivery for global web-enabled business processes

  1. 1. AKAMAI WEB PERFORMANCE SOLUTIONS: PRODUCT BRIEF Enterprises invest heavily in developing web-based applications that move processes like supply chain management, customer support, sales orders, and extranets online. And everyone connected to the web-enabled enterprise – workers, partners and customers – expects instant, secure, reliable access to those web applications, increasingly through mobile devices. But centrally located applications don’t always perform consistently, and when they’re slow or unreliable users become frustrated or avoid using them altogether. Infrastructure build-outs require additional capital expenditure and rarely solve the problem, pushing ROI even further out of reach. To realize the increased productivity, lower costs and revenue boost that web applications promise, enterprises must conquer the performance issues that threaten the online experience. Web Application Accelerator (WAA) Web Application Accelerator (WAA) is a cloud-based service that enables enterprises to deliver web-based applications that are fast, reliable, and secure, in a cost-effective manner.
