Riverbed Technology, The Digital Performance Companyä, launched the Riverbed Digital Performance Platformä and unveiled a new brand identity, accelerating the Company’s strategy to deliver industry-leading solutions to maximize digital performance and fueling new growth opportunities in a $30 billion+ market. Today’s announcements are the result of a multi-year strategy from Riverbed to lead in the area of digital performance, which included several strategic acquisitions, organic development of digital performance and cloud-based features and functionality, and integration across multiple solutions.
Digital is driving innovation and transforming entire industries and has moved rapidly to the center of business strategy, as customers look to digitally transform by delivering new digital services, systems, business models and processes. Driven by major technology trends including cloud, mobile and analytics, digital is gaining serious momentum. According to IDC, by the year 2021, at least 50 percent of global GDP will be digitized, with growth driven by digitally-enhanced offerings, operations and relationships. Additionally, IDC expects digital transformation spending to reach $2.1 trillion in 2021.
While digital is becoming mission critical for business, many organizations are
still using legacy IT infrastructure that is not equipped to handle the digital
initiatives of today and the future. In fact, IDC says that 60% of digital
transformation initiatives will be unable to scale due to lack of a strategic
architecture. To compete in today’s digital era,

Riverbed customers across all industries are deploying Riverbed solutions today to maximize digital performance and drive measurable business outcomes, including the world’s largest container shipping company Maersk.
