Excellent digital experience is key to business success.

Managing the digital experience of users has become one of the most critical business objectives for any business.


The siloed nature of most management tools makes it difficult for IT to truly understand the impact of digital initiatives on the end user.

  • SILO: Most monitoring & management technology focuses on monitoring the performance and availability of the application components in the infrastructure.
  • SILO: Application Performance Management and Systems Management tools focus on web servers, app servers, databases, and hosts.
  • SILO: Network and Storage Management tools focus on those domains.
  • SILO: Virtual monitoring tools focus on the hypervisor and OS resources.
  • SILO: Mobile Device Management (MDM) & Mobile App Management (MAM) are focused on metrics and analytics having to do with mobile devices and apps, respectively.

The problem with this siloed approach to IT management is that it lacks the perspective of what the end users are actually experiencing as they use applications to conduct business.

The End User Experience can’t be measured effectively from the vantage point of the Data Center “looking out.” You should only measure End User Experience from the End User’s perspective “looking in.”  That’s the primary reason for the “IT Monitoring Visibility Gap” – the gap between what your tools are telling you and what your users are experiencing.




This is where Riverbed and Eastern come in. In a world of continual transformation to digital, Riverbed solutions enable IT to maximize digital experiences that adapt to ever-changing environments and expectations.

Eastern will work with the customer to identify key pain points and create a customized end-to-end solution that integrates Riverbed solutions.

Businesses can achieve new levels of IT visibility, performance, and predictability while reducing risks to their business, boosting their security and avoiding the old trade-offs.

The Riverbed Digital Performance Platform helps transform the way customers run the powerful network- and cloud-based apps that connect people, businesses, and experiences in our digital world.

Aternity solves the IT Monitoring Visibility Gap by monitoring from the point of IT consumption – the user’s device. But unlike other IT management tools which deliver value mainly to the IT experts, Aternity delivers that value to application owners across the entire Enterprise by monitoring the end user experience for every enterprise application on any physical, mobile or virtual device.


Aternity understands everything about the enterprise end user – their identity, their role, their department, all of the devices and all of the applications they use, and the business activities for which they are responsible.

Aternity Advantages:

  1. Aternity monitors end user experiences on any type of local, web, cloud, mobile or VDI-delivered app, running on any type of PC, laptop, virtual desktop, smartphone, or tablet. This is different than APM products that can monitor end user experience primarily on web and mobile apps.
  2. Aternity automatically establishes Baselines for what constitute normal performance, and these baselines can vary by geography (HQ versus remote wifi), device type, etc.
