Riverbed SteelCentral gives us a circle of development that helps us to be responsive, pushes us to be proactive, positions us to be predictive, which then allows us to be pre-emptive. This is a result of having one solution that provides us with a complete view across networks, applications and end users.

Resolving app performance issues 50% faster
Allianz, with more than 148,000 employees in 70+ countries, is the 31st largest company in the world, offering insurance and other services to 83 million clients.
“Long page load times and slow application speeds affected our productivity,” says Neval Bircaner, IT Governance Supervisor for Allianz Turkey. “Whenever an application performance issue occurred, it was often difficult to pinpoint the root cause. It was hard to determine whether the application performance issues were due to the applications, the network, or our database. We were also interested in ensuring that our external partners were satisfied with our systems.”
It is now much easier to identify issues with the network or application themselves. In some cases, problems that took a long time to solve can now be fixed in minutes. Following the deployment of SteelCentral solutions, our customers have seen a significant improvement in performance. Riverbed has made a positive impact for us by helping us to considerably improve the customer experience.

Riverbed helped make this business-critical website more stable for a better customer experience.
(Riverbed SteelCentral AppInternals) will trace every Java method call that’s made so you can see exactly where the delays are in each application, almost down to the line of code. I haven’t seen this functionality in any other tool.
