Mobile Experience Optimization

To assure a high performing mobile web infrastructure, an organization must recognize and avoid key barriers including variable last internet mile conditions, complex rich-media requirements and lack of network-aware intelligence in apps. IBM Edge Delivery Services can circumvent these hurdles by:

  • Leveraging deep deployments in cellular networks to help optimize performance
  • Providing intelligent platform services tailored to accelerating the API and image calls that mobile apps heavily rely on
  • Embedding on-device, network-aware capabilities that enable apps to deliver better user experiences across changing network conditions
  • Making real-user app performance monitoring available that ties performance metrics to business objectives

Tailored Content Delivery

With cloud image management capabilities, the IBM Edge Delivery Services platform will automatically optimize images to deliver the highest quality with the least bytes. The platform can also convert images to the size best suited for each device, application and screen dimension.

Further, the platform applies web and API optimizations adaptively to sites and apps based on continuous analysis of real-time conditions specific to the end-user’s browser, device, network speed, and presence of third-party services.
