Performance plays a major role in the success of any mobile app. From page load times to crash rates and network calls, there are a multitude of factors that can positively and negatively impact your app's profitability. According to the Akamai Technologies report "Performance Matters: 9 Key Consumer Insights", nearly one in five consumers expect mobile pages to load instantly; 30 percent expect a page to load in one second or less; and 49 percent expect loading to occur in two seconds or less. Akamai research also shows that a 1 second delay in page response can result in a 7% reduction in conversions. But page load times are only part of the story; there are 5 keys to optimization for profitability: App performance monitoring, analytics, design, ASO/SEO, and customer data. The session will cover what product managers should be focusing on to ensure maximum revenue per visitor.
