SolarWinds to Host National Government User Groups in Manchester and London

SolarWinds invites government organisations to join the company’s annual National Government user groups, and the discussion at the AFCEA London Chapter Event

CORK, Ireland, May 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced that it will host two separate National Government user groups in Manchester, U.K. on May 9, 2017 and in London, U.K. on May 11. The company will also present at the AFCEA London Chapter event on May 4.

“The cloud and hybrid IT are a reality for a majority of government IT departments today. According to the SolarWinds IT Trends Report 2017: Portrait of a Hybrid IT Organization, 95% of U.K. public sector respondents said their organisations have migrated critical applications and IT infrastructure to the cloud over the past year,” said David Kimball, senior vice president, federal and national government, SolarWinds. “While the cloud might be critical to business success, there are still challenges of hybrid IT environments, including the lack of visibility and increased management complexity. Our user groups will provide an opportunity to address how government agencies are solving hybrid IT management and monitoring challenges, giving users the opportunity to share best practice and experiences.”

The free interactive events will include presentations led by Ross Fujii, vice president of product strategy and management, SolarWinds, and Mav Turner, senior director of product management, SolarWinds. National, central, federal, NATO and European Union users, and systems integrators will also have the opportunity to meet technical experts and systems engineers. Presentation topics include:

  • End-to-end hybrid IT management and SolarWinds® Orion® platform
  • Enterprise scalability and integration
  • SolarWinds product updates for management of networks, security, systems and applications, databases, and more
