SolarWinds is a publicly traded company that provides IT operations management software to more than 95,000 customers worldwide. Today, the company announced that it has acquired Rove’s Mobile Admin software and is incorporating its solution into its product offerings. This seems like a smart move on the part of SolarWinds, as Rove has some big customers as well as a robust cross-platform tool for IT Admins.
It seems like not much will change for Rove customers, as SolarWinds is still driving traffic to the Rove site in terms of pricing and product information. The company will likely keep its engineers and the product will simply be owned by the parent company. Congratulations to the Rove team on the acquisition.
