Overall Satisfaction with Akamai

The Akamai platform is currently being used as a cloud platform for delivering secure and high-performing user experiences to any device globally on B2B and B2C websites. Akamai helps global delivery units with its powerful features for content delivery, edge platform, and networking.

  • Akamai is strong at Content Delivery Process with its own method of mirroring website HTML and CSS elements.
  • It also has peer to peer networking feature that let users download large files directly from peers outside Akamai's network.
  • Akamai's intelligent edge platform provides a cloud-connected network of servers located over 100 countries globally.
  • Akamai platforms does not come with an intuitive UI to configure and it requires training for set up.
  • Akami is mostly costly and will be proven very expensive for small organization that are not scaled.
  • Akami activation takes a longer time for a lot of testing with multiple scenarios especially with edge servers scenarios.
  • Akamai RoI improved over a period of times since it comes with heavy costs, however global deliveries in over 100 counties and global web platforms usage helps improve RoI
  • With the complex UI challenges, ROI could be impacted negatively when you have to invest in operations and time.
Akamai is a leader in CDN domain with adaptive media delivery and download delivery and it helps work by reducing the distance between your website and your target audience. It also provides 24X7 support services.
The Akamai Property Manager is the latest version in the configuration management portal for managing edge caching configurations that have improved from its previous version. On the other side, the UI is not very user-friendly and needs to be improved.
