Topic 2: SolarWinds abdicates RMM.

SolarWinds has announced that they’re just going to use the Microsoft tools to manage patch management. Is this simply “opting out” of the RMM game, or a smart move acknowledging that Microsoft does it better.

What does this mean to you as a SolarWinds user? And does it affect you if you use something else? And is there any long-term effect on the industry generally? We discuss.
