Just over two years ago I was in the same position you are in now pitching Orion as our next generation monitoring solution to our Executive Staff and I have also done training for other companies.
Aside from the technical details, I would focus on the following items...
- Orion provides a single pane of glass that can unite all of your technical departments under one "tool umbrella"
- Orion is incredibly flexible with both integration options with other products as well as supporting a very wide range of devices
- This includes the ability to write your own pollers/application monitors if necessary so you know you are covered
- Orion can provide high level executive dashboards and reports to help executives make important decisions
- Orion is very scalable so now matter how much capacity you need, Orion can make it happen
Hope this helps!
