Operations Bridge Review

Dashboards enabled us to get more insight and produce reports. Stability and scalability should be improved.

What is most valuable?

After I think ten years of using OML, we finally had some nice dashboards, which enabled us to get more insight and produce reports.

What needs improvement?

I would like the scalability and stability improved.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

For OMi, it's not stable enough to get an enterprise solution out of it. I was interested in a solution presented at HPE Discover London because we are talking about 7,000 servers. They had 50,000. So I will follow up on that to talk to the technicians involved to see what was involved to get that working.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I want to investigate that further because I'm not sure whether the scalability is currently in there out of the box. It will be in there, but it will need a lot of tweaking and tuning.

How is customer service and technical support?

Technical support could be better.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup went quite well. It was smooth.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

When we were looking for a solution, we were looking for something that had the same features as where we were coming from; so it would be just a natural step to take. We were with OML before. We have them both now.

We looked at other vendors, but we have a five year contract with HPE, so it wasn't necessary.

What other advice do I have?

Plan right.
