No matter your role in your software team, one common goal is to ensure that your end user is having the best possible experience in your web applications. A large part of a great software experience is performance – how fast your pages are loading for example. Being able to drill down into exactly how end users are experiencing your application is one of the best ways of measuring application performance.

But what does success look like to you in your role in a software team? How can you help improve UX and get the whole team on the same page about end-user expectations? Performance monitoring may look very different across job roles.  Between these roles, the clear picture may get lost in translation between front-end developers, product managers, and technical leads. High-level charts on page load speed don’t necessarily help developers, while code snippets don’t help product managers.

Real User Monitoring Insights can help alleviate that confusion by offering one tool that any team member can quickly access tailored, up to date information on website performance issues.

We asked our different members of our team exactly how they use Insights to get the peace of mind they need around performance in the following job roles:

  • Front-end developer 
  • Product manager
  • Technical lead 

Let’s start with the front end developer:

Benefits for a front-end developer

As a front-end developer, you spend most of your time in the thick of the codebase implementing performance tweaks and fixes. You care deeply about your end users. Real User Monitoring Insights gives you an easy way to see individual resources causing issues, fix issues across multiple pages and improve performance and prioritize fixes. Here’s how:

Benefits for a product manager

As a product manager, you are responsible for ensuring the product is meeting the goals set out on your roadmap. Communication with the design and development team is essential, and discovering performance issues may involve building a picture from other managers, developers, and customers.

Insights helps you to build an accurate picture of your website performance without consulting third parties – you can check at the click of a button. Identify high-value pages, rank issues by difficulty and monitor trends over time:

Benefits for a technical lead

After juggling meetings between various members of the development team, assigning tasks and a wide range of other jobs, as a team leader you need to have information on how your application is performing readily accessible in an easy to decipher format. You’ll need to be able to dig deeper into the issue and get up-to-date information on how your web application is performing – all without having to disturb your development team. Insights gives technical leads this information quickly and in a digestible format, plus the option to dig deeper into the issue if needed:
