They say that good things come in threes. We’d be hard pressed to disagree, since today New Relic was recognized for the third time this year for our innovative approach to web application management. Today ThinkStrategies, a leading strategic consulting company focused on the business implications of the on-demand services market, announced today that New Relic has been named a winner of the Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Awards program, which is aimed at promoting the measurable business benefits being delivered by today’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.
The BoSS Awards is an ongoing program which recognizes SaaS companies that are producing tangible business benefits for specific user organizations. These benefits can include increased sales, lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, faster operations and greater profitability.
An example of the business benefits of New Relic’s RPM capabilities is SheetMusicPlus, the largest online retailer of printed sheet music. SheetMusicPlus has a Ruby web application that uses Solr for search queries, a hybrid Java and Ruby environment. They use New Relic RPM to monitor production application performance, to proactively identify code-level issues when they arise, and to make ongoing long-term improvements to the web app. Within one month of using New Relic on SheetMusicPlus.com, the company was able to reduce the average site response time by 66%, meaning its application was able to run three (3) times faster. As a result, visitor traffic (as defined by Google Analytics) increased 53%. And, after ten (10) months of using New Relic SheetMusicPlus’s application is running five (5) times faster than it was before it started using New Relic’s RPM. In the same period, their conversion rate (visitors who purchased) increased 18%!
Jeffrey M. Kaplan, the founder of the SaaS Showplace and Managing Director of THINKstrategies, the strategic consulting firm which conceived and administers the Showplace, said today “Optimizing the performance of web-based applications is essential as we enter an era in which people rely on the Web for their day-to-day needs. New Relic RPM enables businesses to improve the performance and reduce the costs of their web-based applications.”
