In today’s fast-paced and interconnected world, digital transformation has become a critical driver of success for organizations across industries. It encompasses a profound shift in leveraging technology to enhance business processes, revolutionize customer experiences, and drive growth.

The digital transformation journey covers four key areas: domain transformation, process transformation, business model transformation, and organizational digital transformation. Riverbed’s Unified Observability platform, which offers complete visibility and actionable insights based on full-fidelity, full stack telemetry, provides companies the launching pad to a successful digital transformation program.

Domain transformation

Domain transformation focuses on redefining an organization’s core functions and offerings in the digital realm. It involves embracing technological advancements to deliver innovative products and services. This may involve leveraging artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, or big data analytics to create new digital experiences for customers.

For example, traditional brick-and-mortar retailers are increasingly adopting e-commerce platforms, providing customers with seamless online shopping experiences. This domain transformation enables retailers to reach a global customer base, personalize product recommendations, and streamline logistics, ultimately enhancing customer satisfaction and driving revenue growth.

Riverbed offers several solutions to reduce the risk of change for domain transformation. For example, Riverbed offers a comprehensive cloud migration offering that helps organizations avoid performance issues, unexpected delays, and unplanned costs. Riverbed provides cloud visibility by providing insights into workload performance in hybrid cloud, multi-cloud, or SaaS environments, and ensuring the security of these workloads. It enables IT Ops teams to plan for seamless application migrations by mapping application dependencies, as well as predicting post-migration performance. Additionally, it helps reduce cloud costs by optimizing bandwidth utilization, resulting in up to 95% reduction in cloud egress costs. By understanding traffic patterns and associated costs, organizations can engage in more efficient planning. Furthermore, Riverbed’s solution optimizes cloud performance by delivering 33 times faster cloud app performance to users regardless of their location.

Whether it’s for cloud, Windows 11 or VDI, Riverbed offers a range of solutions to reduce the risk of IT change for digital transformation initiatives.

Process transformation

Process transformation entails reimagining and optimizing existing business processes by leveraging digital technologies. This involves automating manual tasks, improving efficiency, and enhancing collaboration through digital tools and platforms.

By implementing automation, organizations can automate repetitive tasks, thereby freeing up employees to focus on higher-value activities. Additionally, process transformation involves implementing cloud-based collaboration tools, enabling teams to work seamlessly across geographical boundaries and fostering innovation through enhanced communication and knowledge sharing.

Powered by the Alluvio LogiQ Engine, the Alluvio portfolio uses AI, correlation, and automation to streamline repeatable processes with minimal human intervention, lower costs, and improved user satisfaction.

With its powerful automation, analytical and integration capabilities, Alluvio delivers solutions such as automated incident response, intelligent ServiceNow ticketing, automated desktop remediation and intelligent incident response for IT Ops and Service Desk Teams.

Business model transformation

Business model transformation involves reinventing an organization’s fundamental approach to value creation and revenue generation. It requires identifying new opportunities and leveraging digital technologies to deliver unique value propositions to customers.

For instance, the rise of the sharing economy, powered by platforms like Uber and Airbnb, exemplifies business model transformation. These companies disrupted traditional industries by providing on-demand transportation and accommodation services, respectively, using digital platforms that connect customers with providers. By unlocking underutilized resources and delivering convenience and personalized experiences, they created entirely new business models and market opportunities.

Organizational digital transformation

Organizational digital transformation encompasses the cultural and structural changes necessary to support and sustain digital initiatives. It involves fostering a digital mindset across the organization, empowering employees to embrace change, and promoting a culture of innovation.

To successfully navigate organizational digital transformation, organizations must invest in a comprehensive Digital Employee Experience solution. Riverbed’s Alluvio Aternity provides companies a complete view of the total digital employee experience by tightly correlating both quantitative and qualitative measures of experience.
