Keynote’s transaction methodology provides the most accurate view of end user experience by taking its measurements using the market leading browser coupled with the most comprehensive geographically distributed infrastructure of measurement computers and backbone representation.
Performance data of the sites measured by The Keynote Consumer E-Commerce Transaction Index is taken using Keynote’s Transaction Perspective® service from US10 agents. Each transaction is measured hourly. The index data is available in the customer’s MyKeynote interface and can be used as a comparison in the daily performance report provided to subscribers of Keynote’s Web site monitoring and measuring services.
Availability and Pricing
The Keynote Consumer E-Commerce Transaction Index is available immediately and is priced at $3,495.00 per month.
The new transaction indices tap into Keynote’s long history and experience developing Internet performance benchmarking indices. Keynote launched the world’s first Web performance indices that assess page download performance (as opposed to transaction performance). Known as The Keynote Business 40 Internet Performance Index (measurements over T1 and T3 connections) and The Keynote Consumer 40 Internet Performance Index (measurements over dial-up and broadband connections), Keynote also launched the world’s first transaction performance index, The Keynote Broker Transaction Index, and the world’s first streaming media benchmark. All today are considered the ‘gold standard’ for Web performance benchmarking.
Now customers can use Keynote’s growing line of industry-specific Web transaction indices to assess Web transaction performance against internal benchmarks and against competitors. Customers can then leverage Keynote’s additional monitoring, performance management, load, content and user experience testing services to improve the overall performance of their e-business applications and infrastructure.
To build and maintain its growing line of Web performance indices, Keynote uses its unparalleled global infrastructure of over 1,500 strategically and statistically located measurement, testing and diagnostic computers representing Internet performance from 50 metropolitan areas worldwide.
