JackBe: Radically Improving Web Application Performance By Optimizing The Client
The Web has continued to deliver value to companies as an efficient and effective means of communicating information and interacting with their customers, employees, partners, suppliers, media, investors, and other third-parties. Part of the reason for the success of the Web in being so core to a company’s operations is that it allows for organizations to deliver distributed applications on a global scale for significantly less cost than it would be using other, more traditional forms of communication or computing interaction.
However, the major downside to the web is its performance. Simply put, enterprises have not mastered the art of making web-based applications, and especially highly transactional ones, responsive to end users. While enterprises have focused on speeding up servers and networks, users continue to experience poorly performing applications. Due to the inherent design of standard web applications, an upgrade of enterprise applications with a focus on the client is often proving to provide dramatic improvements in application performance. JackBe, a pioneering startup company, is at the forefront in enabling enterprises to deliver high performing web applications with their innovative rich client-based solution that they claim is in use by more then 2 million end users.
