Newsroom Introducing The Watch: a brand-new experience for the Centreon user community

New name, new dedicated web platform, and an enriched experience: The Watch is Centreon user community’s all-in-one, collaborative place to network, share, and contribute.

Paris & Toronto—November 18, 2021—Centreon, a trusted partner for IT operational excellence introduces The Watch, a new name and platform dedicated to their user community. The Watch combines in a single location the essentials of a rewarding and unified collaborative experience. Centreon users can join as of today to share information, enjoy mutual support, build on a common knowledge base, acquire and contribute expertise, and more.

Centreon’s user community dates back to the early days of the original Centreon open-source IT monitoring platform. It has since grown to include 250,000 user contributors from over 60 countries around the world. But today marks a new milestone: The Watch is open to all IT monitoring stakeholders. From Centreon open source users and contributors, to the clients and users of commercial Centreon editions, to partners and supporters, everyone stands to benefit from a common collaborative space.

Monitoring is the watch tower of the IT world, a necessity to guarantee full visibility over the IT ecosystem, keeping malfunctions at bay. As such, The Watch was an obvious name for our community. But beyond the analogy, we wanted The Watch to be a place dedicated to keeping on top of things—whether it’s getting an answer on a product-related question or contributing a technical or functional enhancement to the Centreon open source platform,” explains Eryk Markiewicz, Chief Marketing Officer, Centreon.

A new community platform

No matter their Centreon solution: open source, IT, Business, or MSP editions, Centreon users will be able to network, interact with Centreon teams and among themselves, as well as learn and share knowledge relating to the Centreon universe.

Available immediately, the new community platform is open to all members of our user community. The new community place can be accessed here:
