Over the space of two years I have created a series of posts that explore the analytical and statistical concepts that compose the foundation of a solid Web performance strategy.
These mark my attempt to move from a purely technical analysis of providing a solution to the problem at hand. These posts move my approach to one that examines the issues from a higher perspective, one where I can place the singular issues that face people in the areas of Technical Operations and Business Operations into a cross-industry, global Web performance context.
These posts highlight some of the core concepts which need to be re-examined, especially within the reality that faced by all online businesses right now: tightening budgets, static or contracting staffing, and the need to not lose the performance edge.
I hope that these nine posts help you reconsider how you examine Web performance data when you are trying to maintain and grow your business in these troubled times.
