Why Read This Report

Content delivery networks (CDNs) have been around for 15 years using localized caching to improve web performance. But the relentless growth in mobile engagement and the demands of digital experience delivery are now forcing CDN providers to expand their performance-enhancing techniques to address the challenges of dynamic content, mobile, video, and software-as-a-service (SaaS), as well as serving as the first line of defense against security threats. As a result, application development and delivery (AD&D) teams must now consider digital performance investments as part of a broader cloud strategy. This report will help you understand the trends forcing the CDN market to evolve, and the packaging of digital performance services to close your customers' experience gaps. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy; we substantially revised this edition.
