SolarWinds to Showcase Its Alternative to Traditional Enterprise IT Management at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo Barcelona 2013

SolarWinds, an IT management leader serving over 150,000 customers worldwide including small to medium sized businesses and 425 of the Fortune 500 companies, today announced the company will showcase its portfolio of end-to-end IT management products at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2013 in Barcelona, booth no. D28, on November 10-14. The event is an opportunity for IT industry leaders to learn how SolarWinds offers IT organisations an easy to implement and cost-effective alternative to traditional business and IT service management solutions.


  • Since SolarWinds' founding in 1999, the company's mission has been to provide purpose-built products that are designed to make IT professionals' jobs easier. By working closely with and listening to SolarWinds' user-community thwack of over 130,000* IT professionals, SolarWinds has challenged the status quo of expensive and complicated "framework" solutions established by most other enterprise software vendors and, in return, has earned the trust of 425 of the Fortune 500 companies and over 150,000 customers worldwide.
  • Historically known as a provider of network management products, SolarWinds has evolved to manage the full IT spectrum -- applications, servers, virtual environments, networks, storage, security and loga data, desktops and help desk -- while maintaining the ability to efficiently solve specific problems for IT professionals.
  • Today, the company provides a foundation for monitoring and managing critical IT services from the underlying infrastructure to the application layer to user experience around business services through a single pane of glass.
  • For a complete list of SolarWinds' IT management solutions and over 20 free tools and free products, please visit the SolarWinds website.

"From end-to-end IT management products driven by the needs of IT pros to top-to-bottom c-level visibility over the enterprise, our product portfolio can support businesses regardless of size, type or varying degrees of infrastructure complexity," said Joel Dolisy, CIO and CTO, SolarWinds. "We provide IT organisations an easy to use and cost-effective alternative to current traditional IT offerings."

"Since implementing SolarWinds at BT Engage IT six years ago, the tool has allowed us to consolidate multiple commercial monitoring solutions into one. This has given our Network Operations Centre a simple alert management solution and has also helped us to reduce our operational costs," said Dushan Ratnam, BT Engage IT, Technical Strategy Manager.

"When I looked at SolarWinds six years ago, it lacked this product spread and scalability but was already on the right track. Its expansion has probably obviated an earlier risk of being swallowed up by a large infrastructure vendor," said Peter Williams, Bloor Research. "Rather, with a large product portfolio and major cost and user-friendliness advantages over the Big Four -- underpinned by revenues from a huge existing user base -- there is no obvious reason why we should not soon talk about the high-end infrastructure management market in terms of the Big Five."
