Your business relies on your applications and your employees to stay in business. Whether you develop apps or manage business critical apps that help fuel your business, what happens when users experience sluggish performance?

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption.
