Micro Focus Network Node Manager Review

Great GUIs, User-friendly and good reporting, but cumbersome license details.


What is most valuable?

The GUI and config manager.

How has it helped my organization?

The network Manager has improved incident tracking and speed of response to trouble tickets.

For how long have I used the solution?

A year plus.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Configuration was a bit cumbersome for snmp traps on the routers and configuration of the SPIs was a little complicated.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

None that I noticed.

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

Solarwinds was what was used by the organisation but the management decided on a unified solution IT and Telco.

How was the initial setup?

It seemed a bit complex in some areas.

What about the implementation team?

A vendor did the implementation and they were very experienced and responsive to issues.

What was our ROI?

I'd say about 0.3 for now as we really haven't used it for that long yet.

What other advice do I have?

The solution is part of the HP NMS solution and the unification helps in keeping a flow of processes going in the organisation.

I run the Product Management team for HP Network Management Center (NNMi, iSPIs and NA). In the last year, we have vastly simplified the product structure and license, offering an integrated fault and performance management product (NNMi) and a configuration and compliance management product (NA).
Both products come in 2 simple editions: Premium and Ultimate.

Simple, in-place migration from NNMi 9.x to 10.00.

we'd be glad to set up a call and give you an update on the new solution capabilities and product structure.

thx
