IBM Watson Commerce Site Readiness for Holiday Season

Although opportunities for retailers to augment their sales in holiday season are plentiful, many retailers underperform because of a failure to adequately plan and organize their holiday campaigns.

Performance factors such as load time play a crucial role during high-pressure festive seasons. The load time can have a huge impact on conversions and customer satisfaction. For example, Amazon and Walmart increased revenue 1% for every 100ms of improvement.

On mobile, for example, shoppers will quickly abandon a site for poor performance. Infact, the optimum load time for a mobile site is about four seconds – that’s not easy to maintain during peak shopping times.
