Validate a Change in Your Organization

When you change application deployments, network infrastructures or devices in your enterprise, it can have a massive impact. Use SteelCentral Aternity™ to assess and quantify that impact, to validate if your change brought better or worse performance for end users.

Validate a change in your organization
  • Use Validate Application Change if you upgraded or made a change which impacts a single application, and you want to assess the impact of that change on its performance.

    For example, if you change a setting in your enterprise application (like your custom banking application), you can validate the effect of the change on end user performance. Similarly, in Microsoft Outlook, if you increase the RAM of your Microsoft Exchange Server, or change its hard disk configuration, you can check if devices experience faster response times when opening a new mail. Or if you update Microsoft Outlook clients, you may want to confirm that launch times are not slower than before.

    For more information, see Key Task: Validate Application Change.

  • You can validate a change which impacts many applications in your organization using Aternity. If you made a deeper change, for example, like changing your firewall configuration, or some other infrastructure change, you can assess the impact on the end user performance of multiple applications across the board.

    For more information, see Key Task: Validate an Infrastructure Change.

  • Validate the expense of an upgrade or migration with the Validate Configuration Change dashboard, which measures the impact by comparing performance before and after the upgrade. You can monitor upgrades for hardware (like moving users to SSD drives, or moving to laptops) or system changes (like migrating to Windows 10).

    For more information, see Key Task: Validate a Configuration Change.

    Use Validate VDI Migration to validate a migration to virtual desktops. Your migration can be from regular desktops to VDI or from virtual applications to VDI. For example, if you moved an enterprise application (like your custom banking application) to a virtual desktop (VDI) deployment, you can compare the end user performance between regular desktops versus the VDI desktops.
