SolarWinds at Microsoft Ignite 2019

Microsoft Ignite is taking place November 4 – 8 in Orlando, and SolarWinds will be there to share the latest in IT management, from IT operations to outsourced IT and cloud management. Stop by booth 935 to chat with product experts, Head Geek Patrick Hubbard, and me; try a product demo; and pick up some swag.

The worldwide leader in network management software*, SolarWinds has spent 20 years building software that just plain works. Built by IT pros, for IT pros, our software is designed to solve today’s problems and make IT look easy.

And if your organization is planning a cloud migration, you won’t want to miss my presentation “Happy Little Clouds: Application Migrations Done Right.” Reports like the SolarWinds IT Trends Report and the THWACK customer survey show people are moving to the cloud, and we want to help them do so smoothly. I’ll cover the five crucial steps for a successful cloud migration (Discovery, Access, Right-sizing, Monitoring, and Analytics) on Wed. Nov. 6 at 1:15 p.m. ET in Theater D.

See you there!
