Performance for the Digital Age

The age of digital business is here. By 2021, at least 50% of global GDP will be digitized, as companies race to develop new processes and business models to secure a lasting competitive edge.

In this digital age, performance is everything. According to a recent Riverbed survey, 99% of business leaders report that the delivery of digital services and apps is critical for future business success.

However, a major challenge remains. Limited visibility into the digital experience and the constraints of legacy IT infrastructure are throttling digital performance. The resulting performance gap diminishes productivity, disrupts the customer experience, and negatively impacts the business bottom-line.

The Digital Performance Gap and How to Address It:

  • 95% of businesses face challenges achieving a successful digital strategy

  • 80% report that important digital services fail a few times a month or more

  • 99% feel having visibility across a customer’s digital experience is critical to managing it successfully

  • 98% agree that a next-gen infrastructure is critical to improving digital performance

Riverbed digital performance platform
