Compuware Publishes New Whitepaper: "The Hot Business of eCommerce" Paper Details How Poor Application Performance Can Impact Revenues and Customer Loyalty and Why a New Generation APM Approach is the Answer DETROIT, Nov. 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced that it has published a new whitepaper titled: "The Hot Business of eCommerce."The paper explores the correlation of poor application performance on eCommerce revenues, customer loyalty and brand image and how a new generation of application performance management (APM) will help eCommerce businesses deliver peak performance and the bottom line business benefits associated with it. With the extreme competitiveness of today's online retailer market, customers have very little patience for slow performing websites. Customer loyalty can be won or lost in a matter of a single second, causing a customer to switch to a competitor site, impacting revenue and brand image. Studies have shown that a one second delay in response time reduces conversions by seven percent. For an eCommerce site that sells $100,000 of merchandise per day, a one second delay means $2.5 million in lost revenues annually. Online retail customers expect fast and efficient eCommerce applications. It's vital in today's online world that online retailers create best-in-class experiences to stay competitive and in business. This whitepaper outlines: othe cost of poor application performance and its impact on revenues, customer loyalty and satisfaction and brand image; othe complexity of the eCommerce application delivery chain and its impact on performance; and ohow a new generation of APM can help eCommerce business maintain peak performance, drive a high-quality customer experience, and deliver better business results.
