The Performance Paradigm of a Mashup World

Peter Kirwan's RIA Session at AJAXWorld, March 18-20, in New York City

The enterprise Web ecosystem is becoming increasingly complex, comprised of multiple disparate partner sites, data sources and Web services – all of which make up the new mashup world. And while the method of delivering enterprise applications may be changing, the users expectations for quality, dependability, and uptime have not.

In this presentation, I will define the performance paradigm facing enterprise mashups, while answering the following questions: How does an enterprise validate a positive user experience when they don’t control all the pieces in the service delivery chain? If there are problems somewhere in the chain, how are performance issues isolated and diagnosed? What are the important data points that should be monitored and how can that data be shared and best utilized across a web ecosystem?

Speaker Bio: Peter Kirwan serves as chief strategy officer at Webmetrics, a leading provider of web performance management solutions for web ecosystems, where he’s responsible for the execution of Webmetrics’ overall corporate strategy and technology agenda. Peter has more than 20 years leadership experience, which spans both that as an executive and entrepreneur. In the late 1990's, Peter co-founded and sold Servercast Communications to NaviSite. Servercast was one of the industry’s first companies to offer managed application hosting, a model later adopted by NaviSite. Peter served as chief technology officer for NaviSite through a successful IPO, and moved on to serve as Vice President of Strategy, where he was responsible for driving NaviSite’s technical strategy, as well as mergers and acquisitions.
