Today’s modern hybrid workplace and work styles present unique challenges for companies. If these challenges are not met it can threaten business continuity, customer satisfaction, employee productivity and engagement, as well as the successful execution of business-critical initiatives. For example, networks are increasingly complex having migrated from on-prem, MPLS solutions to supporting mobility and internet-based applications. And now, they leverage remote, mobile, on-prem and edge capabilities with Cloud/SaaS, Internet, MPLS, and SASE. Plus, employees, partners, and customers expect “always on” 24/7 digital support.

Case study

Childers, a U.S. architecture firm, has been creating meaningful and memorable spaces for Native American communities for over 25 years. The company was greatly impacted when the global pandemic hit. The shift to remote work impacted the firm’s VPN performance. This limited people’s access to business-critical applications and complicating collaboration. Childers also found it difficult to support end user systems remotely. The company’s IT support effort was limited by available bandwidth and network latency. In addition, low bandwidth as people worked from home posed more network challenges.

The company worked with Riverbed to deploy Riverbed Client Accelerator, SaaS Accelerator, and Virtual SteelHead at the datacenter. This provided more reliable and faster remote access. By using Riverbed Acceleration solutions and achieving faster file access, Childers was able to significantly increase productivity. The solutions helped save each employee 1.5 days per week, which was also a huge time savings company-wide. Phillip, MIS Manager at Childers said, “Had it not been for Riverbed, we wouldn’t have been able to work from home so efficiently when the global pandemic started. Riverbed enabled us to share huge files with remote users that work with varying amounts of bandwidth.” For more details on this case study click here!
