CA Spectrum Review

We have never faced any issues but it took a while to understand the product


What is most valuable?

The one-click console.

How has it helped my organization?

We use this as part of our infrastructure monitoring and it's done through a console. With the timely alerts that our MTTR reduced, we could determine the impact of the outage as well as the root cause of the issue.

What needs improvement?

It took a while to understand the product, but once we went hands on, it's great to work with. I have previously used Tivoli Enterprise console which doesn’t need any expertise and is easy to learn.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have never seen an outage of the tool.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

My organization is rapidly growing with servers being added to the data center and we have never faced any issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have never used customer service.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Using the tool comes as part of my job because my company uses CA Spectrum for their infrastructure monitoring. Previously, I have used Tivoli Console.

How was the initial setup?

Setup was very straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

It was done in-house.

What was our ROI?

I have used the product to monitor our company’s infrastructure.

What other advice do I have?

I would strongly recommend it.
