Why SolarWinds Is Evolving From Monitoring to Observability

SolarWinds President and CEO Sudhakar Ramakrishna on evolution from monitoring to observability
At SolarWinds, our purpose is to enrich the lives of the people we serve. In a world where complexity is expanding, our commitment to offer simple yet powerful IT solutions has served us well throughout our more than 20-year history. Today’s pace of digital transformation means businesses are actively building new applications and leveraging multi-cloud deployments, while reworking their existing ones, to achieve operational excellence. At SolarWinds, we have a focused mission to help our customers accelerate their business transformation through solutions designed to be simple, powerful, and secure for their hybrid and multi-cloud environments. We believe our behaviors drive outcomes, and the past two years have provided moments where I’m extremely proud of how we as an organization have demonstrated our own agility, readiness, and leadership. Our Secure by Design foundation, along with recent acquisitions in the database and public sectors, have put us in a unique position to meet customers where they are, and help them get to where they want to be. We believe it is critical for us to address our users’ ability to automate, observe, visualize, and remediate their environments, and in doing so, reduce the time to detect and resolve issues, so they can have more productivity cycles to accelerate their organization’s transformation. And in our continual efforts to align our goals with those of our customers, we knew we needed to evolve from monitoring to observability as a critical first step. Today is a foundational step in that evolution, as we announce the release of our SolarWinds® Hybrid Cloud Observability solution.

Streamlined, Simple, Efficient

Building on our industry-leading and comprehensive monitoring solutions foundation, it is our goal to become a leader in observability. Our Hybrid Cloud Observability solution offers actionable intelligence for optimizing performance across networks, applications, databases, and systems in a simple, powerful, and secure way. Unlike current observability solutions that focus largely on tying logs, metrics, and traces—resulting in restrictions on what they can observe—our solution brings to bear the full complement of our monitoring strengths with a focus on business-critical capabilities, such as health scores, service level assurance (SLA) measurements, and many others. Hybrid Cloud Observability is built on the SolarWinds Platform—leveraging our SolarWinds Orion® Platform as a basis, and employing our Next Generation Build System with a goal to set new industry standards in secure software development. With this framework, we remain committed to our customers and creating effective on-ramps for them as they traverse their hybrid and multi-cloud journeys. We want our customers to realize their business requirements for their distributed multi-cloud environments and let our platform’s comprehensive capabilities, along with the experience of our Customer Success team, enable their success. We have even more exciting developments on the horizon, and we look forward to working with existing and new customers to realize their success.
