l QUICK LOOK l E N T E R P R I S E Smart Edge Monitoring Solution – Enabling Visibility Without Borders Enterprises worldwide are implementing digital transformations at unparalleled rates. In fact, 90 percent of those responding to a question related to the pandemic in the Flexera 2021 State of the Cloud report indicated that their organization's use of the cloud would exceed expected levels due to changes in corporate business and IT strategies in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Not surprisingly, the report also reveals the heavy adoption of cloud, with 92 percent of the survey respondents stating that their enterprise had a multi-cloud strategy today. It has quickly become clear that cloud-only tools and code-based, end-to-end agents for analysis from client-to-application workload end-points are incomplete and inefficient. As adoption and workload migrations to the cloud have matured, there is greater operationalization of the services that enable organizations to maximize the value of their cloud investments. However, it is here that the performance problems have become complex and challenging – chief among them is the lack of visibility and control. Cloud migrations, SaaS adoption, digital transformations, and a hybrid workforce have dramatically altered the complexity of the connected world. As these migrations have occurred, gaps in performance visibility have impeded problem resolution. Borderless visibility is essential for isolating problems – from home, to data center, to cloud. Problems Solved by Smart Edge Monitoring NETSCOUT ® Smart Edge Monitoring brings visibility throughout the ever-evolving, multi- cloud environment to solve performance issues affecting digital services across enterprise technology and organizational boundaries. Assure high-quality end-user experience in any network, any location, any service, for any user, regardless of where they perform their jobs. Smart Edge Monitoring is a revolutionary combination of NETSCOUT's nGeniusONE ® Service Assurance solution with nGenius ® PULSE. nGeniusONE leverages Adaptive Service Intelligence ® (ASI) smart data from InfiniStreamNG ® (ISNG) appliances and vSTREAM ® virtual appliances for packet monitoring and deployed at key service edges. This provides borderless visibility across multiple domains, including the network edges and the data center / cloud service edges for application and network performance analysis, as well as troubleshooting throughout complex multi- cloud environments (Figure 1). NETSCOUT's nGeniusPULSE platform leverages synthetic testing, including configurable business transaction tests, performed by nPoint devices deployed in the critical client edges, including home and remote locations. This provides monitoring visibility into availability and performance from the user perspective, of on-premises, cloud-based, and SaaS applications. By leveraging NETSCOUT's Edge Adaptor technology, synthetic transaction test results are integrated into ASI for early warning of end-user experience issues.
