CA SYSVIEW Review

As a system programmer it gives total visibility, and the ability to deep-dive, into the system


What is our primary use case?

We use it to control everything that's going on in the system. It's a very good tool to use for a system programmer and for a normal programmer.

What is most valuable?

As a system programmer I can see deep into the system, where nearly everything is at, so it's a very good tool for us to use.

How has it helped my organization?

It's quicker to get information, it saves time.

What needs improvement?

From the demo I attended it looks like all the features I would want are coming.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Very good, no downtime.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's very good.

How is customer service and technical support?

I haven't used technical support for SYSVIEW but I have used CA support and it's very good.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We were using SDS from IBM. We switched because SYSVIEW is a better product.

How was the initial setup?

Straightforward.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

You have this and you have SDS from IBM. You can compare the two products. We have an agreement with CA so we took SYSVIEW and it's good.

What other advice do I have?

When selecting a vendor it comes down to the price.

I would recommend SYSVIEW. Use it.
