What is most valuable?

You can integrate clouds, hybrid infrastructure, and on-premise infrastructure into one product. You have also a big range of application probes, which is needed on our side.

How has it helped my organization?

The benefit is easy installation. Thus, the model approach of the product and out-of-the-box probes, which deliver direct value.

What needs improvement?

We want to see more investment in the UI and the dashboard (from what we have seen here at CA World, that is the case). We want to see this because usability and ease of use of the product is becoming more important for our customers.

What do you think of SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager?

Primary Use Case: I use this to monitor our system. I also use it as a configuration manager where all changes of a configuration are stalled. • Improvements to My Organization: We are using this product for efficient automation and a short learning gap. It is part of our tool set. • Valuable Features: The features include an easy alert setup.  We push all our configurations to the servers with ease and the logs capture almost all the transactions needed for an internal audit. • Room for Improvement: We want to be able to store it in a data warehouse format and integrate it with Google single sign-on. • Use of Solution: Less than one year.
