Stable, saves us time when updating multiple devices, and it scales well

Pros and Cons

  • "This product has helped us because we can now do many tasks at once. Rather than copy one file to one device, we can do an entire group at one time."
  • "The product should be expanded to include more hardware, beyond Cisco and Juniper devices."

What is our primary use case?

We use this product for general task automation, including things like updating our Cisco devices. For example, rolling out patches is something that is automated.

The top three processes that we have automated are upgrading the operating system of physical devices, changing configurations, and security compliance analysis reporting.

How has it helped my organization?

TrueSight provides us with a unified view to define and monitor our workflows, which is important to us because it helps when it comes to automating things. It makes it easy to browse and navigate our workflows.

This product has helped us because we can now do many tasks at once. Rather than copy one file to one device, we can do an entire group at one time. It has dramatically improved the way our organization functions.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is being able to automate the pushing of OS updates and configurations.

The reporting and analysis tools are helpful.

What needs improvement?

The product should be expanded to include more hardware, beyond Cisco and Juniper devices.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using BMC TrueSight Network Automation for between four and five years, and the company has been using it for even longer.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have jobs running every night and the stability is pretty good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a highly scalable product. However, at the moment, we don't have plans to expand our usage. We have more than ten employees who are using it, each deploying automations, and everybody has administrative access.

How are customer service and technical support?

I would rate their technical support a seven out of ten.

They are pretty quick and have good technical knowledge.

How was the initial setup?

The product was implemented before I joined the company.

What about the implementation team?

My company works directly with BMC and they are very good.

What other advice do I have?

While learning how to use this product, I did not view any of the how-to videos available via the web interface. Instead, I was able to learn while on the job.

The biggest lesson that I have learned from using this product is that it is pretty good at automating processes, and it is quick to do so. I have learned a lot with respect to growing out security compliance, having standard templates, and unifying the configuration of Cisco devices.

In summary, this is a good tool that does what we want at the moment, and it has had a very positive impact on our business. I strongly recommend it.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
