The Government of Canada’s IT Infrastructure and the delivery of application services is undergoing an accelerated evolution of cloud adoption. The enterprise and mobile workforce is utilizing an increasing percentage of their applications as Saas services. Currently users across the country and the world, connect to these SaaS services over a backhauled cloud connection. Individual users within the GC workforce are distributed across a vast and varied geography throughout Canada. Each consumer of a SaaS application is unique and is affected by a varied array of challenges as they reach out to these services across multiple network connections of bandwidth, latency and performance reliability.

As we have with so many WAN applications in the past, Riverbed can help with application acceleration for services such as Office 365 (Sharepoint, OneDrive, Office and Outlook), Salesforce, ServiceNow, Box and Veeva. Riverbed SaaS Accelerator is a fully managed offering supporting both secure mobile clients and enterprise WAN opt infrastructure. Riverbed can continue to provide data reduction, application optimization, lower bandwidth consumption, and faster performance that can translate into improved end user productivity and experience for SaaS users.
