Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to establish what techniques Swedbank can employ to improve the performance of their external website. Several optimisation techniques for improving front-end performance are presented from user experience and server load perspectives. The website is then evaluated based on the principles identified to determine if and how it can be improved, whereupon testing is employed to determine the benefits of implementing these techniques. The evaluation shows that the Swedbank website can be improved in several ways; the most important being to employ text file compression, caching headers and to combine images together. The report concludes that Swedbank should implement at least these three techniques as they are the most cost-effective from both a user experience and server load perspective.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna rapport är att fastställa vilka tekniker Swedbank kan använda sig av för att förbättra prestandan på sin externa webbsida. Flera optimeringsåtgärder för förbättring av front-end-prestanda ur användarupplevelse- samt serverbelastningsperspektiv presenteras. Webbsidan utvärderas sedan utefter de presenterade principerna. För att vidare fastställa eventuella fördelar med implementering av teknikerna så utförs ett flertal tester. Utvärderingen visar att Swedbanks webbsida kan förbättras på flera sätt, varav de viktigaste är komprimering av textfiler, kombinering av bilder samt ”caching headers”. Rapporten drar slutsatsen att Swedbank bör implementera åtminstone de tre nämnda åtgärderna, då de är de mest kostnadseffektiva i förhållande till det mervärde som uppnås både från ett användarupplevelse- och serverbelastningsperspekt
