Teneo Launches SaaS Optimization as a Service for Remote and Mobile Workforces

February 22, 2018

Tailored SaaS optimization boosts remote workforces’ capabilities while cutting companies’ overall management costs.

Theale, UK and Dulles, VA, USA – February 22nd, 2018: Teneo, the Work From Anywhere IT services company, has today launched a SaaS Optimization as a Service offering, designed to enhance the delivery of data to and the performance of customers’ SaaS applications for their end users, regardless of their work location. It is the fourth Teneo ‘as a Service’ offering to have been launched in as many months and follows the company’s launch of WAN Optimization as a Service in September last year.

The new service will help global organizations who use SaaS offerings, such as Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce.com and Box, to gain better flexibility and control by improving application performance and end user experience, which is often compromised by latency issues, among other factors.

The sheer scale of flexible, mobile or remote working at global companies is making performance challenges more difficult to address and resolve, because local personnel in effect become another ‘moving part’ in the overall network or infrastructure equation.

Teneo’s SaaS Optimization as a Service uses hardware and software components from the Riverbed Client Accelerator technology range to optimize end user experience while reducing customers’ WAN or Internet link utilization. The result is a significantly-reduced delay in file access and transfer between the end user’s device and the Cloud, leading to better SaaS application adoption rates and higher employee productivity and satisfaction levels.

Teneo has designed the new service around the SaaS apps that local teams and remote and mobile workforces most need to optimize. It then deploys a tailored solution using best-practice configurations. This approach mitigates implementation risk while ensuring the SaaS Optimization as a Service runs 24×7, and is monitored, supported and managed by Teneo experts.

Service costs are designed to enable CIOs to fund this important performance improvement through OPEX. Implementation outlay is covered with a simple non-recurring cost (NRC) to avoid an expensive upfront capital outlay and speed up time to market, while the on-going service is delivered within a predictable monthly recurring cost (MRC).

Marc Sollars, CTO at Teneo, commented, “The number of branch offices and companies adopting mobile working policies continues to increase inexorably. Industry leaders suggest that over half of all employees worldwide could be based at remote locations in the next few years. This market shift, combined with cloud migration, means that users are now further away from the data they’re accessing daily, and this calls for a much smarter performance strategy.”

Sollars added, “Many customers have been using WAN optimization for years on their traditional networks. That same principle can now be applied to hybrid networks between the Cloud and remote users. Our SaaS Optimization as a Service helps customers to remove any barriers to adopting this solution, so they can get started today and immediately see performance improvements for employees.”
