How is Aternity APM Related to David Bowie?

Aternity September 2, 2014



The number 521, that’s how!

It’s an important number, really. It is a prime number, an Einstein Prime with no imaginary part. It is also a Chen prime, and a Lucas Number. DNA has a 521-year half-life. There are 521 catalogued languages in Nigeria. On 5/21 in 1804, the Lewis and Clark expedition began. On the same day in 1927 Charles Lindberg’s famous solo flight across the Atlantic landed, and on 5/21 in 1983 David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” single reached #1.

And an analysis done by IDC shows an average of a three-year return on investment (ROI) of 521% on the SteelCentral Application Performance Management solutions, AppInternals and AppResponse. SteelCentral AppInternals combines end-user experience monitoring, code-level transaction tracing, and application component monitoring into one solution designed specifically with today’s complex IT environments in mind. SteelCentral AppResponse complements AppInternals with a network-based view of how Web and non-Web applications are performing. These products work side by side to provide the best application monitoring, or can be used separately based on your individual needs.

A 521% ROI and that’s not all

IDC’s analysis showed that these customers are achieving an average payback period of just 6.4 months. The customers surveyed will spend approximately $2.6 million per organization on Riverbed solutions, and achieve $16.1 million in benefits. This results in a $13.5 million net present value (NPV).

That’s a lot of money.

The monetary benefits come from a variety of different factors, in which the value is often far greater than just monetary benefits. Here’s just a snapshot of the many benefits our customers experienced:
