No website is an island. To provide rich customer experiences, websites increasingly depend on third-party components such as shopping carts, ads, customer reviews, web analytics, social networking, search engine optimization, video, and many more. Third-party components enrich your website’s functionality to drive more traffic to your site, offer interactive experiences, increase conversion, and add new functionality when it becomes available.
The problem: Your entire website can be vulnerable to degraded performance or a complete shutdown if any one of these components fails. The solution is to follow best practices in website design and monitoring to happily use third-party components while mitigating the risk of dependency.

• How third-party components can make your website better and why this trend will only increase.
• Why service level agreements give you a false sense of security.
• Best practices to mitigate the risks of using third-party components.
