DX Spectrum Review

Powerful fault management platform which integrates with CA's other products.

Valuable Features:

I like the flexibility CA Spectrum offers to model networks with devices and different locations and technologies. 

It is easy to use and offers a lot out-of-the-box features (i.e. multi-vendor support, network discovery). 

If necessary there are also APIs to develop our own integrations.

Improvements to My Organization:

Spectrum admins mostly enjoy having a powerful fault management platform which also lines up and integrates with the other software products they are using, i.e. trouble ticketing system and performance management solutions.

Room for Improvement:

There is still room for improvement for mobile clients like tablets and smartphones. Most of the functionality can only be used with the Java client.

Deployment Issues:

We've had no issues with deployment.

Stability Issues:

We've had no issues with stability.

Scalability Issues:

We've had no issues with scalability. Especially with the latest release, the scalability was improved which allows support for huge networks with a small number of CA Spectrum servers.

**Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: Our company is a business and integration partner of CA.
