Web Performance Management Tool

Using visual analysis to help web developers

Concept

In conjunction with the performance formula that I generated for improving performance in an IBM product, there was a need for each web application team to assess their current performance and predict how much improvement they could get from compressing and consolidating static files.

This was a task for a tool that would let them play with values and visually analyze the how those changes would effect their application.

Implementation

To produce this visual analysis tool I build a spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel which allowed each team to modify the number of static files they planned on using, and see how much that would contribute to performance improvement.

For some teams this showed them that simple changes would suffice, for other teams it highlighted the fact that their application was doing far too much computation on the client side, and that they needed to make greater changes in their application to meet the target.
