Why: 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 optimisation, video and many more. Third-party components enrich website functionality to drive more traffic to sites, offer interactive experiences, increase conversion and add new functionality when it becomes available.
The problem: An organization’s 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.
What: During this free webcast, attendees will learn:
• 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; and
• Best practices to mitigate the risks of using third-party components.
