IBM Tivoli NetCool Review

Powerful, feature rich, but clunky and requires a savvy administrator


Valuable Features:

Full featured - event/fault management, performance management, topology map, discovery, RCA, event enrichment, Proviso will chart data from almost any source with a variety of aggregation options. Very flexible and scalable.

Room for Improvement:

Web interface isn't on par with the rest of the major BSM suites. Some functions need to be accomplished by each module because they weren't designed as a system, they were integrated from components acquired. New features and upgrades come slowly and are usually delivered very late.

Other Advice:

This is another one of those suites glued together from a myriad of acquisitions and it shows once you get under the hood. Not my first choice.
