Riverbed Technologies has released a series of software updates to its AppInternals and Stingray software lines aimed at helping developers optimise applications for remote workers.
The company said that the updates would help developers streamline applications both in the home office and with branch deployments.
Among the updates will be an overhaul to the AppInternals Xpert enterprise developer tools as well as the StingRay Browser Tools platform. The update will seek to speed up the development of applications and streamline the testing of new code for enterprise applications.
Riverbed performance unit senior director of product management Russ Eisner said that the aim of the update was to streamline and speed up the development of applications and improve communication between developers and support teams.
"One of the pain points from maintaining applications in production is the two different communities involved," Eisner said.
"The developers are almost always guilty until they can prove otherwise or they spend more time putting out fires than developing the next generation of their code."
To alleviate the problem, the company is looking to improve product visibility throughout the development lifecycle. Riverbed said that the update will improve developer visibility for individual modules and allow developers to better view how their code operates within larger application deployments.
In doing so, Riverbed hopes that it will give developers a better view of how end-users view applications and how their code behaves in a real-world environment.
