The report validates Riverbed’s focus on delivering exceptional digital experiences to customers and employees, as well as providing extensive and granular data on application experience visibility. Based on industry benchmarks and fine-tuned to a company’s individual business requirements, Riverbed Aternity helps Service Desk teams proactively identify digital experience issues before they become widespread, prioritize actions based on their impact on the business, and speed Mean-Time-to-Response (MTTR). By automating routine processes Riverbed portfolio has enabled IT teams to “shift left,” empowering all IT staff to fix issues faster, enabling senior leaders focus on what matters most to the business.


“As businesses have shifted to the cloud and employees can work from anywhere, Digital Experience Management and Unified Observability have become priorities for companies.  Organizations are focused on delivering a great employee and customer digital experience, which are intrinsically linked,” said Richard Tworek, CTO, Riverbed Technology. “Riverbed delivers a differentiated Unified Observability offering – the unique combination of cross-domain visibility tools that provide a 360-degree view across the enterprise – end user experience, applications and networks–, with the ability to contextualize all the data. This in turn provides organizations with unified, actionable insights that benefit the business and deliver on the user’s digital experience – for both employees and customers.”


“The acceleration of workforce productivity and effectiveness is contingent on the ability to rapidly analyze complex sets of data on network, application, and device performance in order to achieve granular and actionable insights for improving employee IT experiences,” said Steve Brasen, Research Director at Enterprise Management Associates. “In evaluating the DEX market, we identified standout functionality for bringing visibility to system and software performance with the Riverbed Aternity DEM solution, particularly with the platform’s unique and industry-leading application monitoring capabilities.”


Riverbed Aternity Digital Experience Management (DEM) Solution

Riverbed Aternity DEM combines IT service benchmarking, End User Experience Monitoring (EUEM), Application Performance Monitoring (APM) and Device Performance Monitoring (DPM) to drive visibility into the entire end-user experience across any application, device, or network. With interactive dashboards, IT can spot anomalies and determine if the problem is unique to that incident or if it has the potential to flare up and bog down service across the enterprise.


Automated Remediation helps teams determine the source of the problem on any client device, network, or application and then drill down to determine how to resolve the issue, enabling service desks to improve first-level resolution rates and speed MTTR. Riverbed Aternity End User Experience Management Insights helps IT teams proactively detect user-impacting issues before they become widespread, and prioritize based on productivity impact, thereby improving customer satisfaction.

Additionally, Riverbed’s portfolio also includes Riverbed NPM solutions and Riverbed IQ, a new cloud-native, SaaS-delivered Unified Observability service that empowers IT with actionable insights and intelligent automation to fix problems faster and improve digital service quality.
