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


Valuable Features:

The one-click console.

Improvements to 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.

Room for 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.

Use of Solution:

I've used it for two years.

Stability Issues:

I have never seen an outage of the tool.

Scalability Issues:

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

Customer Service:

I have never used customer service.

Previous Solutions:

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.

Initial Setup:

Setup was very straightforward.

Implementation Team:

It was done in-house.

ROI:

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

Other Advice:

I would strongly recommend it.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
