Celebrating the Wins of 2023

I firmly believe we should take the time to celebrate our wins. Personally, I try to keep in mind the wins (big and small) I’ve had throughout the year. They drive me when things are tougher or when I’m doubting myself or even when it’s time to review my performance. As 2023 draws to a close, I thought now was a perfect time to toast ourselves on the year's victories. Let’s kick off 2024 with good vibes and great memories. In case you missed it, SolarWinds has won a number of awards this year, and I’d like to take a moment to congratulate all the teams that made these victories possible and share some good cheer.
