Feb 2018 EMEA Partner Summit Preview

As the countdown to the EMEA Partner Summit (formerly Partner Bootcamp) is well underway (we begin on February 5), we want to share a few points on what to expect at next month’s event. We are delighted that the event has grown over the last couple of years, not just in the number of attendees, but also in the breadth and depth of content. We have actually had so much interest that we now run separate tracks for technical and for sales aspects.

Just to give a flavor of what to expect, here is a small taster:


We are delighted to have not one, but three keynote speakers for this EMEA Partner Summit, including:

  • Christoph Pfister (EVP Product)
  • Kevin Bury (SVP Customer Success & Business Operations)
  • Ludovic Neveu (GVP Sales)


The technical track will focus on training for SolarWinds Certified Professional® (SCP) exams, including:

  • Network Performance Monitor (NPM)
  • Server & Application Monitor (SAM)
  • NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) (beta)

As you can tell, our technical training team didn’t just stop at a single exam for NPM. They have worked tirelessly to extend the scope of products, with SAM in the process of being added to the portfolio. And as a bonus for those attending the Summit, there will be access to a new exam for NTA.

However, that’s not all. We are also delighted to announce a brand-new SCP track for Orion® Architecture, aimed at our consultants and partners. This SCP certification will focus specifically on deploying large-scale Orion deployments, and will focus on topics such as:

  • Centralized vs. distributed deployments
  • Deploying high availability
  • Scaling topics for Orion modules
  • Integration with other solutions


As promised, we have a great line-up of evening activities. Highlights include a private dining experience at an
award-winning barbeque restaurant. We’re bringing the flavours of our Austin HQ to Ireland, with the former head chef at Jamie Oliver’s Barbecoa Smokehouse.

Hi dgsmith80​,

you should get an email later this week confirming final details, but if doing the technical track then yes, a laptop will be needed to access the lab resources.

Look forward to meeting you!
