Newmont Mining Corporation Strikes Gold With SolarWinds Orion
SolarWinds Inc. a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced that Newmont Mining Corporation uses SolarWinds’ Orion® Network Performance Monitor (NPM), Application Performance Monitor and Engineer’s Toolset to support the company’s largest asset, its Asia Pacific region.
Over the past 10 years, Newmont’s Asia Pacific region, including Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand, has seen tremendous opportunity and challenges, from the discovery of additional ore reserves to ensuring the responsible management of local environments to maintaining a critical business uptime across its distributed network locations.
In Indonesia alone, the company supports over 5,000 Newmont employees and contractors, two branch locations in Sumbawa and Jakarta, and more than 1,500 devices, applications and servers combined.
The company needed a robust, yet easy to use, multi-vendor solution that covered network monitoring, troubleshooting and reporting for its growing network complexity.
SolarWinds Orion Saves Asia Pacific Region Costly Time and Resources
Newmont discovered SolarWinds through a competitive IT management solution search online. After downloading and trialing SolarWinds’ fully-functional product evaluations available on its website, the IT team selected Orion NPM, SolarWinds Application Performance Monitor and Engineer’s Toolset, based on the products’ easy-to-use, easy-to-customize, real-time monitoring capabilities.
“SolarWinds met all our business needs,” said Samuel Tirayoh, IT Manager – PT. Newmont Nusa Tenggara, Sumbawa – Indonesia. “In addition to being user-friendly, it was important for our team to adopt a solution that could monitor the status of all our vendor devices, routers and switches. With our previous solutions, we were limited to monitoring support on a small range of products.”
SolarWinds’ flagship Orion family of IT management solutions offers IT professionals a comprehensive and easy-to-understand view of their network and applications’ performance from a single pane of glass. Designed with feedback from SolarWinds’ user-community of 55,000+ IT managers, Orion NPM is designed to manage the rapid changes in dynamic IT environments and allow IT professionals to simply, and visually, manage networks of all sizes.
With Orion NPM as the foundation, IT professionals can add additional Orion modules as needed to build an IT management system that fits most enterprises’ evolving needs — from configuration, to application performance, to network performance and traffic analysis. Users can view the real-time statistics and availability of their IT environment from any Web browser, providing a convenient way for administrators to stay in tune with their networks at any time, from anywhere.
Since implementing SolarWinds Orion NPM and SolarWinds Application Performance Monitor, Newmont reduced its IT helpdesk tickets by 70 percent and addressed its top concerns.
“We have resolved high bandwidth utilization issues and are now able to track and locate devices across locations, saving us time solving problems and money replacing broken devices,” said Tirayoh. “Our IT team is proud to be using SolarWinds’ products, and our management is pleased with its performance.”
“Simply put, SolarWinds knows what the customer needs.”
