Introduction

This case study of Hudson Recruitment Australia is based on a September 2016 survey of SolarWinds monitoring software customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“Solarwinds has enabled our small IT team to react quickly by highlighting an issue when it occurs and being proactive in terms of capacity planning of WAN links and disk space.”

“Compared to other tools I’ve used it is easy to use for the beginner, but also powerful and highly customizable. "

“You can easily get graphs to illustrate a particular issue or scenario.”

Challenges

The business challenges that led Hudson to evaluate and ultimately select SolarWinds monitoring software were:

  1. The management team needed to be able to easily identify problems and find solutions
  2. The business required a single pane of glass dashboard to troubleshoot problems quickly without having to question data integrity
  3. The IT Team needed a solution with in-depth features to allow the business to get a better perspective of their IT environment.
