Texas-based SolarWinds, a leading provider of observability and IT management software, has collaborated with Bengaluru-based IT services major Infosys to advance the shift of SolarWinds solutions to a new software-as-a-service (SaaS) model.

Through this engagement, Infosys said it will leverage its engineering capabilities to accelerate the “SaaSification of SolarWinds products and platforms built to provide customers increased visibility in highly complex hybrid and multi-cloud environments.”

This collaboration is a key component of the SolarWinds strategy to offer accessible, highly effective, and value-based solutions built to empower its customers to accelerate their digital transformation efforts, Infosys said in a statement.

SolarWinds recently launched its first fully integrated cloud-native solution with the launch of SolarWinds Observability on October 19, 2022. The new SaaS platform claims to provide unified and comprehensive visibility for today’s modern, distributed, hybrid, and multi-cloud IT environments.

As more companies move IT systems and business functions from on-premise to the cloud, it has become more important than ever for enterprises to underpin their practices with robust, secure multicloud and hybrid cloud solutions. SolarWinds believes this will accelerate its go-to-market strategy by shifting the company’s industry-leading on-premises products to SaaS-based models.

“We have already begun moving to our new SaaS model with the launch of our comprehensive SolarWinds Observability offering and we now have a framework to quickly transition our other monitoring and observability solutions across network, infrastructure, systems, database, applications, and ITSM to this new model. With Infosys, we are confident we will be able to drive more market share with SaaSification,” said Sudhakar Ramakrishna, President and CEO, SolarWinds.

Anand Swaminathan, Executive VP – Communications, Media, and Technology for Infosys, said, “Our goal at Infosys is to enable the SaaSification of products and platforms to accelerate digital transformation. With Infosys Cobalt, we are excited to help SolarWinds successfully navigate their digital transformation journey to deliver on customer expectations and boost revenue.”
