What is L1M3
L1M3 (LIME)—the Loop1 Monitoring Maturity Model— was created as a standard reference for organizations to achieve desired business outcomes. Adopting L1M3 improves technology investments’ performance and leverages IT tools and operational data to inform business services and drive better business decisions.
Based on decades of experience in designing, implementing, and monitoring technology solutions across thousands of organizations worldwide, the L1M3 model is structured to help express business technology goals in standard terms while leveraging IT tools and data to deliver valuable business insights.

Introducing NetFoundry—Loop1's preferred secure platform for delivering L1M3 Services
NetFoundry Network-as-a-Service (NaaS)
NetFoundry’s Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform is the recommended service delivery path for our L1M3 Services clients; but where this isn’t possible, we can work with a client-provided secure method of connectivity.
VPN’s just don’t cut it anymore—they’re inefficient, complex to manage, and introduce significant security risks. With NetFoundry’s Network-as-a-Service platform, you immediately solve these VPN problems with zero trust networking.’
Loop1 and NetFoundry will establish a Loop1-to-Client private dark zero-trust network, providing a platform for secure remote asynchronous access for the ongoing, proactive management of your SolarWinds platform.
Let’s get Technical
If Loop1 uses NetFoundry to provide our services securely and remotely, this is what it looks like at a 50,000-foot view.

SolarWinds Value-Add License Renewals
As a leading global partner and authorized reseller of SolarWinds, Loop1 can leverage its committed relationship to offer significantly enhanced value for your SolarWinds license renewals.

SolarWinds Version Upgrades
SolarWinds release version updates and security patches frequently, but you’re not benefitting from them if you don’t keep your platform up-to-date. Loop1 are here to assist you with your SolarWinds upgrades. Our SolarWinds Certified Professional engineers will work with you to ensure your upgrade is delivered in accordance with best practice guidelines, and fully tested to ensure the upgrade was successful and SolarWinds is fully functional. Our engineer can also demonstrate how you can take advantage of the new features and functionality.
SolarWinds Health Check
Loop1’s Health Check provides a comprehensive and in-depth assessment of your SolarWinds environment to ensure your Orion Platform and monitoring setup performs at optimum levels. A healthy platform that is fine-tuned, configured for your environment, up-to-date, feature-complete, and secure by design, is far better equipped to meet your IT Operations Management requirements—today, and in the future.
A Loop1 SCP engineer will conduct a comprehensive review of all aspects of your SolarWinds platform—from the underlining architecture, to how SolarWinds was deployed, configured, and even how your IT pros are using the platform; all are assessed against our documented best practices – based on our L1M3 (LIME) ITOM Maturity Methodology.
ITOM Maturity Assessment & L1M3 Roadmap
Loop1’s ITOM Maturity Assessment is designed to assess the current maturity of IT Operations Management within your organization. We will undertake a detailed assessment of your environment against our L1M3 methodology (5 Phases of Maturity, 6 Assessment Areas, 7 Technology Silos) – against which you will receive a personalized scorecard and roadmap to help drive monitoring and observability maturity that delivers business value.
Orion Platform Support
With Loop1’s 24×7 follow-the-sun unlimited Orion Platform Support you can be assured that you have access to responsive, knowledgeable technical support as and when you need it. All Loop1 L1M3 Services and Value-Add Renewals clients receive access to our dedicated ServiceNow portal for logging and tracking support & service requests, as well as reviewing their purchase history.

Our global team of SCP engineers has carried out more than 4,500 SolarWinds professional services engagements over the last ten years.
