Tips to Improve Performance When using ASP.NET
Tips to Improve Performance When using ASP.NET

Slow-loading software or applications and those with an unimpressive UI tend to irk users and might even lead to customers discarding the app or software to find a better, more appealing alternative. This is why many companies offering software development services in Dubai tend to prioritize UI and performance above all else, sometimes even neglecting security itself. 

This also applies to internal business applications where users are given no other option. In such cases, users can be satisfied only if the software or app is fast. 

If the software is built using ASP.NET, there are ways to tune the performance so that users will be satisfied. The flexibility and versatility granted by the popular framework is what helps ASP.NET development retain its demand despite the competition.

Here are 3 ways how performance can be improved for ASP.NET-powered software. 

App analytics

The app’s performance and every factor that influences its performance should be measured for starters. When you have a baseline of the software or app’s performance, you will get a better idea of the kind of changes that will make a positive difference in performance. Sometimes a change that is supposed to improve performance can be the one that’s reducing the performance. To distinguish between the good changes and bad, analytics is key. 

Prefix is a great tool for measuring performance. It can do a lot of things such as highlighting slow queries large JavaScript files etc. The tool can help developers devise an efficient performance optimization strategy. 

HTTP compression

By default, there is no compression of HTTP content. Enabling compression is a good approach to improving performance. Many Microsoft Technologies experts in Dubai recommend using gzip algorithm to compress HTTP content even for the most archaic of browsers. Another new algorithm called Brotli is gaining a lot of popularity today when it comes to HTTP compression. Brotli is supported by almost all popular browsers. 


HTTP/2 is the new version of HTTP sporting a number of great optimizations including compression that covers protocol headers. A mechanism called ‘pipelining’ allows the connection with the server to transfer more than one file at a go. This makes reducing HTTP requests unnecessary while improving performance of web apps and websites considerably.
