IT and performance management company Riverbed has announced “SaaS Accelerator”, a new solution that claims to improve the performance of leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) apps by up to 10 times.
When “SaaS Accelerator” is combined with “End User Experience Monitoring” (part of Riverbed’s Digital Experience Management offering), organizations can directly measure and monitor in real time the performance of SaaS-based enterprise applications by up to 10 times, the company said in a statement.
“Companies today are in varying stages of digital transformation, even within their own businesses. Riverbed’s new release is targeted to address specific challenges organizations are facing in their digital journeys and in assuring cloud and SaaS performance,” said Dante Malagrino, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Cloud Infrastructure Business Unit.
By 2020, companies will move as much as 80 per cent of their applications into Cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS) environment.
However, firms are falling short of delivering on this promise with 73 per cent reporting that they are experiencing poor SaaS performance on a monthly basis and 90 per cent indicating that this performance degradation impacts their business.
The “SaaS Accelerator” solution can dramatically improve user experience and business outcomes by eliminating performance gaps and disruptions that interfere with an employee’s ability to stay connected, satisfied and productive.
Riverbed also announced enhancements to its SD-WAN solutions (SteelConnect and SteelHead SD), which provide unified orchestration and connectivity across the entire distributed enterprise network with embedded security, optimization and visibility.
