Available later this month, in combination with automation and Aternity Sentiment surveying capabilities, the solution supports sustainability initiatives, energy-efficiency awareness and reporting requirements while helping to reduce costs associated with avoidable energy consumption.

Aternity captures and correlates granular, actual end-user performance data from all applications and devices, translating it into actionable, environmental insights to reduce carbon emissions. With the new energy efficiency offering, organisations can now view and identify laptops and PCs that are running and consuming energy even when not in active use.

With this insight, IT teams can automate a change in power settings to all or some of those devices to significantly reduce overall energy consumption across the enterprise. The new energy-efficiency offering also includes proactive messages that inform users about their energy consumption and provides remediations to drive changes in employee behavior. Alluvio Aternity also offers sentiment survey templates to enhance employee engagement and promote the adoption of sustainable practices for a positive environmental impact.

“Riverbed’s new energy efficiency capabilities support a key sustainability goal that many IT organisations are prioritising to achieve results, which is both good for the environment and reducing costs” said Richard Tworek, Chief Technology Officer, Alluvio, at Riverbed. “With hybrid work models, it is difficult to determine end user device power consumption if workers are no longer in the office. With Riverbed’s Alluvio Unified Observability portfolio, we are in a unique position to serve as the foundation for a variety of sustainability initiatives that rely on data accuracy. Today, Riverbed is bringing to market the first of several Alluvio sustainability capabilities that will provide actionable, environmental insights and automation so that organisations can reduce their carbon footprint.”

One organisation prioritising key sustainability goals is Riverbed’s customer Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust (KCHFT), one of the United Kingdom’s largest national health service providers.

“In addition to using Alluvio Aternity to deliver a better digital experience for clinicians and patients, our IT team can now start to monitor endpoint power consumption and if required, adjust configuration on energy usage accordingly to help reduce our carbon footprint, supporting the overarching National Health Service sustainability agenda of becoming the world’s first net zero carbon health service” added Darren Spinks, Head of IT Operations, Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust. “Additionally, we have revised our asset refresh plan based on device performance. Aternity showed us we may not need to replace 38 percent of our 1318 devices aged five years or older, leading to a potential saving on investment while also further helping our sustainability efforts.”

Alluvio Aternity full-spectrum Digital Experience Management (DEM) features End User Experience Monitoring (EUEM) and Application Performance Management (APM) and provides insight into the business impact of customer and employee digital experience by capturing and storing technical telemetry and sentiment feedback at scale from employee devices, every type of business application, and cloud-native application service.

Deployed as an agent on end-user devices or application infrastructure, Alluvio Aternity measures what users actually see for every transaction, every app, running on any device. Currently, Alluvio Aternity manages more than six million endpoints globally with five million for SaaS, and processes over 250 billion activities daily, playing a critical role in the Digital Employee Experience (DEX). Alluvio Aternity is part of the Alluvio Unified Observability portfolio from Riverbed, which also includes network performance management (NPM) solutions and Alluvio IQ, a SaaS-delivered Unified Observability service that surfaces issues with context to solve problems fast.
