SolarWinds Announces Webcast Comparing Server & Application Monitor to System Center Operations Manager

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 05/16/12 -- SolarWinds® (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, has opened the registration link for a free webcast to take place on Thursday, May 24 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. CDT, "Top 3 Reasons SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor is a Refreshing Alternative to SCOM."

During the webcast, former SCOM and current SolarWinds customer Jed Krisch, Manager of Technical Services at the Carilion Clinic, will share his experience comparing SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor (SAM) to System Center Operations Manager (SCOM), along with best practices on customizing the software.

In recent weeks there has been a lot of buzz around Microsoft System Center 2012. Microsoft has made a lot of improvements to Operations Manager, in particular new capabilities for dashboarding, some network monitoring and application monitoring for J2E and .NET applications.

These improvements are great for large enterprises that have already invested their time and resources to getting SCOM deployed. For companies of all sizes, SolarWinds offers an easy-to-use, easy-to-implement product for monitoring servers and applications ideal for all companies who need visibility into their infrastructure and application environment.

This webcast will cover how to:

  • Deploy existing agentless templates, add community templates to your environment and augment out-of-the box templates to add additional performance metrics
  • Customize dashboard views, leveraging dynamic service groups
  • View and create reports -- no SQL experience necessary


  • Brandon Shopp, Director of Product Management, SolarWinds
  • Jed Krisch, Manager, Technical Services, Carilion Clinic
  • Mike Bussey, a former SCOM Admin and current SolarWinds Senior Engineer
