Owning Your Inheritance: An Orion Zero to Hero Journey

Community Manager

Occasionally, you get to choose your monitoring system, but more often, that decision was made for you by someone else. SolarWinds THWACK® MVP Ben Keen and Technical Content Manager for Community Kevin M. Sparenberg both inherited their setups. They each took a patchwork monitoring solution and made it a critical part of the IT landscape for their organizations. Along the way, difficult discussions and decisions had to be made. They’ll share their experience with inheriting, managing, and ultimately owning all parts of the monitoring infrastructure and give you pointers on how to do the same.

Along the way, he's become a SolarWinds advocate and evangelist of monitoring glory. His passions include shooting archery, blacksmithing, playing D&D, and helping IT professionals leave at a reasonable time each and every day.
