Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the leader in application performance infrastructure, today announced that Hemit, a provider of IT services to the Central Norway Regional Health Authority, is using Riverbed® SteelCentral™ AppResponse to understand the “real-time” performance and behavior of its application delivery for effective and fast troubleshooting.

Tweet This: #SteelCentral AppResponse enables Hemit to understand real-time performance & behavior of its application delivery:

Hemit, an IT service provider for hospitals and associated medical services in central Norway, supports x-ray imaging, lab analysis and important patient records, as well as more standard business services such as email for more than 16,000 employees. Hemit’s IT infrastructure is highly sophisticated, but disaggregated. The IT team sought a way to have a holistic view of its IT environment for effective troubleshooting.

“Our complex IT environment made it very difficult to locate the source of a problem,” said Dagfinn Krog, Service Operation Manager at Hemit. “With Riverbed SteelCentral AppResponse, we can constantly monitor response times of applications. We can now see what’s going on inside web apps and web services to troubleshoot performance issues.”

As application ecosystems become increasingly complex and distributed, it’s essential to have a holistic operational view of application performance, from the end-user, through the network and infrastructure over which it runs. SteelCentral AppResponse enables IT teams to monitor application performance based on end-user experience, application transactions, infrastructure and networks continuously, delivering a complete performance picture on a single dashboard.
