It's a Usabili-buddy Extravaganza! Usabili-what? Do you have ideas on how things could be done more efficiently within your SolarWinds products to help make your job easier?

Who are we?
At SolarWinds we not only pride ourselves on building products that solve IT pros needs, but doing it with the help of IT pros themselves. How do we do this? Talking to our users! In addition to thwack, we have a whole team (User Experience or UX for short) dedicated to talking to users, gathering feedback, and providing that feedback to our product and leadership teams. The UX goal is to make working with us and our products the best that it can be.
What do we do?
We conduct various feedback session (usually virtual on Go to Meeting or the like) from mockups of early feature designs, to brainstorming new ideas and exploring how tools are being used in their environments.
