For how long have I used the solution?

over 4 years

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We have no issues with product deployments, where sometimes we used to have few issues like every other software product. We get hot fix, patches and remedy instructions from HP. which mostly resolves issues occurred.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No. Stability is good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

With new version scalability is highly achieved. You can add additional components to existing architecture WITHOUT downtime, which is amazing.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Customer service is one of those areas that definitely needs to be improved.

3.5 out of 10

Technical Support:

Needs improvement. HP itself needs to improve skill on this product as this is mostly sought automation tool which offers wide range of automation.

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

We had used HPSA and found OO can be really handy in terms of automation and started using it.

How was the initial setup?

If you understand architecture, it's quite easy and you can can customize based on your need.

There is never a complexity in OO.

What about the implementation team?

In my previous financial/banking firm we had HP team implementing it. Here in current accounts, I have my hand in implementing.

In my next role with different organization, I'm going to start implementation of OO. I'm excited about this and waiting for the role.

What was our ROI?

We have saved few million dollars with OO.

Big surprise is we have special GUI based screen where you ROI on every flow.
