The SolarWinds web interface is truly a sandbox by design. There are many options available for creating uniquely customized dashboards which can provide your end-users with a much more streamlined and useful product.
Custom SQL Reporting
Alerting within any NMS solution can be a daunting and sometimes frustrating task. By leveraging all of the capabilities available within the SolarWinds platform, you can make alerting much more intelligent and effective.
Advanced Dashboard Design
While SolarWinds products offer numerous basic reports, it sometimes becomes necessary to leverage SQL/SWQL Kung-Fu to get the data you want. Everything from business hours reports across multiple time zones and advanced trend analysis can be achieved with a strong understanding of the database backend and some SQL/SWQL skills.
Helpdesk System Integration
Integration between NMS solutions and helpdesk software is a critical component of any well-oiled IT department. By leveraging the advanced alerting capabilities and the comprehensive data collected by the SolarWinds applications, helpdesk software integration becomes a much simpler hurdle to overcome.
