A recent study by Engineering.com indicated there is a significant gap between how Industrial Equipment Manufacturing companies value specific aspects of their project execution and how they judge their performance. In order to address the challenging aspects of product development projects, it was determined that projects with a web-based Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution will perform higher.
Learn how PLM solutions with embedded project management can uniquely provide the following operational best practices:
• Full alignment between projects and the product portfolio in order to leverage common technology platforms and launch products to market faster
• Coordination of a project’s schedule and resources, with its scope as defined by requirements and development constraints, in order to meet market expectations
• Automatic project task updates as development work is completed to provide a real-time understanding of project status and progress

IDC believes that digitization and the 3rd Platform are driving enterprise leaders to consider significant upgrades to their business systems. Included in this list of systems are enterprise planning and performance management solutions. New tools must be fast and flexible to connect data from throughout an organization and continuously synchronize plans with changing market conditions. Organizations with planning and performance management needs should proactively evaluate connected EPM solutions as a central component of their digital enterprise strategies.
Application performance management (APM) tools allow enterprises to proactively manage their investments in bandwidth and the business-critical applications used every day. An application performance management solution is recognized as an essential component of WAN optimization-techniques that help businesses get the best possible performance from existing networks.
However, building a business case for an application performance management solution requires more than a belief in its benefits. It requires some data to quantify the value of a bottom-line result.
This white paper reviews ten business scenarios in which application performance management solutions are used to monitor applications across the WAN deliver a quantifiable Return on Investment (ROI). Example cases and calculations are provided for each scenario, describing how companies have quantified the value of an APM solution in that area.
Traditional enterprise performance management solutions were designed for applications running inside the corporate network and are unable to provide visibility beyond the corporate network perimeter. With the rapid adoption of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications by enterprises, these performance management solutions that are completely blind to issues outside the enterprise, are unable to help IT teams troubleshoot performance problems with the SaaS applications.
Is your IT organization taking the proper steps toward successful cloud adoption?
Legacy networking technology is hampering IT agility. Cloud providers have initiated an agility revolution but secure inter- and intra-cloud network connectivity are still very challenging. Easier alternatives are either expensive, worsen application performance and/or hamper network efficiency. Riverbed’s unique SD-WAN solution helps unlock agility across the complete enterprise network allowing for easier deployment and management of cloud-centric networks. This cloud adoption Use Case outlines challenges and solutions for cloud-centric enterprise architectures including:
· Unlocking cloud agility through simple workflows in the WAN such as single-click secure connectivity to cloud and branch networks
· The importance of bandwidth reduction and application acceleration to ensure cloud adoption
· Distinguishing between application and network problems through enhanced visibility

Application performance management (APM) focuses on monitoring, maintaining, and optimizing the performance and health of business applications across development, test, datacenter, and network environments. As mission-critical enterprise application environments become more complex because of the increased use of cloud, big data, and mobility, APM is becoming a top priority for IT teams that need to quickly and cost effectively track end-to-end application performance, identify and remediate the root cause of performance problems, and maintain service levels required by end users and business stakeholders. SaaS-delivered APM solutions offer rapid time to value for IT organizations that need to implement APM quickly with minimal disruption to the business.
Traditional performance management solutions were built for applications owned by the enterprise and run inside the corporate network. The explosive adoption of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and cloud applications have brought new performance management challenges that push the limits of the enterprise infrastructure and break these traditional approaches. In this white paper, we examine why existing solutions don’t work for the modern enterprise and discuss a fundamentally different approach that is needed to address the new challenges.
