ORION 301: DATABASE & AUTOMATION Custom Reports & Orion SDK

The Orion 301: Database & Automation  class is geared towards students that have extensive experience with the SolarWinds platform, but want to do a deep dive into topics such as: NPM, SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), and the Orion Software Development Kit (SDK).

While our Orion 101, 201, or 202 classes are not a prerequisite, students will be more successful with an advanced understanding of the SolarWinds platform as this course will not cover installation and basic overviews. Students will also highly benefit from a basic understanding of the Transact-SQL and PowerShell languages, but neither is a requirement.
