EMA’s Impact Brief focuses on how Aternity is delivering industry-leading enhancements aimed at giving Line of Business (LOB) and IT stakeholders visibility into end user behavior and application performance “From the Edge on In.” The Impact Brief describes how Aternity’s FPI Platform provides a user-centric approach to proactive IT management by aggregating, analyzing, and reporting on the three key elements that together define the user experience – application performance, device performance, and user productivity. EMA also reflects on how Aternity’s v5.0’s new innovative features empower Aternity’s Global 2000 customers and certified partners with the broadest coverage “of end-user experience across almost any type of application or Windows-based desktop (physical or virtual).”
Julie Craig, EMA Research Director, writes that, “Aternity’s product announcement is impressive in that it targets critical requirements expressed by many IT organizations.” For companies seeking better application performance management for internal business users, “EMA highly recommends a review of Aternity’s FPI Platform and value proposition,” continues Craig.
In addition to the EMA coverage, Aternity has received a number of industry accolades over the last 30 days including recognition by CRN Magazine as a Top 100 Virtualization Vendor, a Boston Business Journal Best Place to Work, and being named a finalist in the American Business Awards. Aternity’s product innovation in providing ground breaking end user experience management capabilities has also resulted in recent press coverage around the Aternity FPI Platform v5.0 with articles in leading industry publications such as InformationWeek, CRN Magazine, Software Magazine, and PC World.
“EMA’s Impact Brief clearly presents the challenges that many enterprises experience when they have limited visibility into how their end users are actually using key business applications,” said Trevor Matz, President and CEO of Aternity. “We are committed to transforming organizations into user-centric proactive IT enterprises and closing the visibility gap not addressed by data center and network-centric APM solutions.”

Solving the Visibility Gap from the Desktop Vantage Point
The driving need to understand real end user experience from the frontline has grown rapidly with the increasing complexity and highly distributed nature of today’s virtualized IT environments. Cloud Computing, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), SLA Management, Web 2.0 applications, and Meaningful Use programs are just some of the main IT initiatives that have increasingly exposed organizations to the visibility gap and their inability to truly understand end user experience “From the Edge on In.”
Widely adopted Application Performance Management (APM) technologies are data-center centric and are therefore limited in their ability to provide comprehensive visibility into how end users actually experience the business applications they consume. Aternity’s FPI Platform uniquely monitors the three primary components that dynamically interact at all times to define and impact an end user’s experience as an IT consumer: Application Performance, Device Performance, and User Productivity. Frontline Performance Intelligence is the result of the real-time aggregation, analysis and correlation of all these metrics, ultimately closing the visibility gap from the Desktop Vantage Point.
