Riverbed Supports Container Shipping Company Maersk On Its Digital Journey 


Riverbed Technology has announced that Maersk Line, the world’s largest container shipping operator, is using Riverbed SteelCentral to monitor business critical applications and services and provide the ability to troubleshoot performance bottlenecks across the company.

“The digitalisation at Maersk Line has been significant,” says Andy Laurence, head of production services at Maersk Group Infrastructure Services.

“Five years ago, 20 per cent of our revenue was digital, and today it’s over 90 per cent. As we continue on our digital journey, having a scalable and stable digital platform infrastructure and end-to-end visibility across our digital services and into the cloud is critical.”

From customers booking and tracking container space to its own seafarers being able to smoothly transact business processes, application uptime is hugely important to Maersk Line.

The company expects that a full implementation of SteelCentral will allow it to effectively monitor the application infrastructure and provide end-to-end visibility across its IT environment.
