On Monday June 18th and Tuesday June 19th, Kenson and SolarWinds joined forces at our SWUG events in Manchester and Birmingham. Our first event was held in Manchester at the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel, followed by our event in Birmingham at the Ibis Hotel.
Each day began with registration and then either lunch or breakfast where customers could meet and greet each other. This is always a fantastic opportunity for customers to discuss their SolarWinds products and get to know other members of the SolarWinds community. We then introduced John O’Callaghan, Sr. EMEA Product Marketing Manager for SolarWinds, who gave us the low down on the latest products, new releases and IT trends for SolarWinds. This seminar allowed for plenty of interaction between the customer and a SolarWinds professional, who was able to give invaluable advice in a one to one setting. After the coffee break, Darryl Drinkwater, Head of Professional Services for Kenson, then spoke about the challenges IT managers face and some important insights into GDPR. Robert Browning, a SolarWinds MVP, then followed with a discussion on his SolarWinds end-user experience.
We always highly recommend these events to anyone who uses SolarWinds products as it provides you with the opportunity to speak to both Kenson and SolarWinds professionals about any specific problems you are facing. As well as this, these events provide you with the tools to progress your SolarWinds skill set and be the first to know about all the new releases and product updates.
