Before Skipjaq, optimising the performance of a Java web application was a frustratingly difficult, time-consuming, and uncertain business. Performance experts were almost impossible to find, and even harder to hire. That’s why most Java web applications running on AWS today have never been optimised — a reality we’re here to change.
Skipjaq is the first company to deliver Performance Optimisation as a Service for Java web applications running on AWS. Our automated platform speeds up targeted applications by at least 50%, and delivers uniquely actionable insights regarding the baseline and peak performance of your applications.
Your users will be happier and more productive, and you get to spend less time worrying about damaging outages and more time focusing on the innovative line-of-business applications you got into this job for in the first place
