SciVisum comments on creating websites for international audiences in The Guardian

SciVisum CEO Deri Jones was quoted in The Guardian newspaper, commenting on how to create a website for an international audience

Deri Jones, CEO of SciVisum agrees: “Customers far away from the servers will get slower journey speed (a millisecond here and there can quickly add up to several seconds for a content-heavy web page), so they must consider the use of global content delivery network or cloud networks to get their content closer to their customers.”

Deri Jones continues:

Once you’ve set up the website and you’re operating an internationally-facing business, Deri Jones warns about the more practical issues such as time zones and international holidays: “When selling across borders you have to take time zones into consideration, for example, a Boxing Day sale in New Zealand must not start on Christmas Day in the UK.”
