Time: 1pm UK time

Sluggish network performance has been a common denominator in many digital technology discussions recently, especially over the past year. It is a continued headache for oil and gas organisations who need to access corporate networks from home or from offshore locations. Although this may be an issue, it can be a topic that people do not want to complain about. They assume it could just be slow home broadband when in fact, it is due to poor network or application performance.

Slow application performance, difficulty in accessing certain applications, being unable to open files or download files at a reasonable speed can slow down end-user productivity making it difficult and frustrating for employees to complete their day to day tasks. The first step in solving these issues is knowing where and what the problem is, this is where gaining network visibility comes in and enables you to troubleshoot network problems and accelerate application performance.

During this webinar with Riverbed, we will be talking about:

  • How to gain visibility into your organisations network and understand whether the problems are with the applications or the network
  • How to troubleshoot and fix problems before the end-user is impacted
  • How to accelerate the performance of your workforce applications
  • Reducing file opening times, file compression and gaining reliable backup of files between sites
  • Real life examples of how organisations such as RigNet, Maersk, ABB, ERM and Subsea7 have used Riverbed solutions to monitor business critical applications, increase application performance and simplify data management.

Riverbed Technology has helped several organisations in the Oil and Gas industry maximise the performance of their networks and applications so they can reach the full potential of their IT investments and workforce productivity.

The world’s largest shipping operator, Maersk uses Riverbed’s NPM to monitor business-critical applications and services and provide the ability to troubleshoot performance bottlenecks across the company. Consultancy Environmental Resources Management (ERM) and Subsea7 use Riverbed solutions to reduce latency to improve file transfer speeds and application performance which enables employees around the world to access large files remotely whether they are at sea, or on land. RigNet also uses Riverbed solutions, SaaS Acceleration and SD-WAN to provide reliable connectivity, fast site onboarding and improved user experience. We will discuss these use cases in more detail during the session.
