The culture of impatience is growing as consumers are expecting instant gratification. Your enterprise can’t just meet expectations anymore, it’s now the norm to exceed expectations. What are you doing to keep up?
NetApp’s recent announcement of Memory Accelerated FlexPod presents a pioneering opportunity for businesses in which application response time is crucial. Consumers too, have a reason to be excited about the proliferation of this technology. Improved responsiveness of enterprise applications can be easily translated into better user experiences and savings on the customer-end.
As an avid consumer of fashion and dubbed the official shopper of my household, Memory Accelerated FlexPod would have an immense effect on my purchasing experience. We buy things on the daily basis, whether it’s groceries, clothes, or household items. Nowadays an increasingly larger proportion of our purchases are online. Some of my friends go so far as to never step out of the house. When I ask why, they respond, “why bother if you can order everything online?” Fair argument.
With brick-and-mortar stores dying out due to the rise of online shopping, businesses need a continuous online presence without exception. Think about a time when you abandoned your cart because of website problems. You clicked on the 50% off storewide banner, arrived at the company website, spent a whole hour filling out your cart, clicked continue to checkout, and the website fails or lags due to the volume of data. For a customer, this is a huge turn off. For the company, this could cause significant revenue loss.
