Over 258,440 professionals have used IT Central Station research.
Compare the best Output Management vendors based on product reviews, ratings, and comparisons.
All reviews and ratings are from real users, validated by our triple authentication process.
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score.
The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score.
(20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.)
Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in
that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product
with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) *
80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our
rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution
for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews;
two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old,
as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

To be perfectly honest, it hasn't made a blind bit of difference to how the organization functions. It wouldn't have made any difference whether we'd gone for HPE, Sun, IBM or anyone else. It's a platform to run the SAP environment on.
For a company like RAK Ceramics, virtualization and cloud is the obvious way to go. The problem is the cost justification for the transition; that's the difficult bit. Some help with that would be good. They spend a huge amount of money... more»

For us, it's a service delivered to our company; so we don't need to be concerned about the technical details. The service quality is quite good.

It helps us to integrate complex systems. We don't need to take care of it. HPE delivers this as a service.

The key area for improvement is that there should be more storage and a new storage architecture.
