The Watch is Centreon’s user community, a place where problems are discussed and solved and where knowledge and know-how are shared and built, and more. The Watch is quite an eclectic place: IT practitioners from around the world mingle and help each other. Because this is a community centered on growth and altruism, the most helpful users evolve through ranks that recognize their contribution and growth as Watchers. Now, Centreon is introducing an ultimate rank in The Watch, that of Lord Commander. This blog post tells you more about this rank and how it differs from the classic The Watch ranks Newbie, Builder, and Ranger.
The Watchers: A community dedicated to IT monitoring
Watchers are the vigilant eyes looking over the crucial IT systems of organizations around the world. They keep a close watch on the ever-evolving IT monitoring landscape, spotting the latest trends and technologies, and sharing their insights with the rest of the community. They also run into issues, often turning to The Watch with urgency, wanting to solve them. Other Watchers have their back, standing at the ready to answer questions from fellows in need.
Ranks are based on engagement
Depending on the frequency, and even more important, the quality of their interactions with other community users, Watchers transition from the entry-level rank Newbie, up to the rank of Ranger.
Needless to say, many Centreonians (Centreon’s staff) are also standing guard on The Watch, ready to pitch and listen to any improvement idea the community might have to improve the Centreon IT monitoring software.
The rank of Lord Commander is a little different: it’s a role that’s bestowed to those users that have made their marks in The Watch and in the industry.
The Highest Rank: Lord Commanders
Lord Commanders are Watchers that are tapped on the shoulder to become part of an elite group of IT monitoring experts who have demonstrated exceptional dedication, expertise, and leadership within The Watch and in their field of work.
