The proliferation of workplace applications and the rising expectations for service quality among today’s digital workforce have led to a critical increase in incident volume and complexity. Traditional service desks are often overburdened with tickets, resulting in inefficiencies, inconsistent IT service delivery, and escalating costs. Moreover, IT teams are frequently inundated with monitoring events that may not directly impact the end-user experience, leading to longer resolution times and higher error rates for critical issues. Siloed IT operations further exacerbate the problem by limiting knowledge reuse and hindering automated remediations with accurate root cause insights and analysis.


Aternity’s Intelligent Service Desk dynamically models expert decision-making and logic-driven remediation by leveraging customizable runbooks. Unlike other DEX offerings that utilize numerous remediation scripts for narrow use cases, Aternity’s Intelligent Service Desk enables broader AI-driven automation capacity, eliminating the need for human intervention. For unresolved issues, an IT service management (ITSM) ticket is routed to the right level with the necessary context for swift resolution. Now, Aternity’s flexible automation logic streamlines and correlates user feedback via Sentiment Surveys, enabling optimal engagement levels to resolve simple and complex issues efficiently.


Key features and benefits of Riverbed Aternity’s Intelligent Service Desk integration include:

  • AI-Driven Correlation and Anomaly Detection of device and application issues
  • Intelligent automation across remediation workflows, resulting in incident prevention
  • Out-of-the-box and customizable runbooks, automatically triggered by Service Desk Alerts
  • Interactive user feedback via Sentiment Surveys to prioritize and optimally resolve issues
  • Seamless integration with ITSM tools such as ServiceNow for targeted, intelligent ticketing


“Today’s announcement builds on Riverbed’s years of experience in AI and automation. Riverbed Aternity’s expansion of its Intelligent Service Desk capabilities marks a significant milestone to empower organizations with more sophisticated remediations and sentiment to augment human decision-making,” said Richard Tworek, Chief Technology Officer, at Riverbed. “By offloading repetitive and lower-value tasks to AI-driven algorithms and intelligent automation, we’re enabling Digital Workplace teams to not only build a more proactive approach to remediation but also free up more time for human ingenuity.”
