Compuware Corporation today announced the findings of a cloud performance survey conducted by Vanson Bourne. The survey of 677 businesses in North America and Europe examined the impact application performance has on cloud application strategy and deployments.
The survey reveals that the majority of organizations in both regions are greatly aware that poor performance of cloud applications has a direct impact on revenue. The survey shows that businesses in North America are losing on average almost $1 million per year because of the poor performance of their cloud-based applications. In Europe, the figure is more than $0.75 million. The survey also reveals that organizations are delaying their cloud deployments because of performance concerns and believe that service level agreements (SLAs) for cloud applications should be based on actual end-user experience and not just on service provider availability metrics.
