Case Study: RIGA Airport

RIGA Airport is one the busiest and fastest growing international airports in the Baltics. In order to allow their people and teams to effectively connect and collaborate amidst multiplying data, they deployed Microsoft® SharePoint®, which created barriers to team productivity and general data security.

The airport's biggest challenge was missing an overview of access rights and not being able to track changes to permissions as they occurred. They were looking for a solution to eliminate data security threats and improve overall governance by preventing unwarranted access rights from increasing.

With SolarWinds® Access Rights Manager (ARM), the principal solution developed by SolarWinds, RIGA Airport was able to limit access rights to a need-to- know basis, thereby helping reduce data security risks, as well as help ensure accountability and compliance with internal policies by knowing who accessed which files.

Sullivan Solar Power’s IT Leader Enables Lead Generation and Revenue Growth

When Daniel Sullivan started Sullivan Solar Power he had one goal in mind: to transform the way the world generates electricity.

At the time his company launched in 2004 it was one of few in the San Diego area that installed solar power systems. Since then not only has Sullivan Solar Power grown tremendously, so has the industry itself.
But the company’s fast growth was hindering their ability to deliver. Sullivan Solar Power needed to find a way to stay ahead of the competition. Company leaders quickly identified that they needed a better way to manage an exploding volume of sales leads.

The company’s spreadsheet-based system for tracking leads was inconsistent and impossible to report on making it difficult to know the actual number of leads. The team turned to Quick Base to quickly build a centralized system to manage sales leads and other key company information. They have since leveraged Quick Base to streamline multiple processes and functions, from multiple business functions like HR, Purchasing, and IT.
