Many enterprises have something called "tool sprawl." Over time you invest in tools and all of a sudden you step back and realize there is some overlap in the tool set that you have. You have tool X and tool Y and they each do some different things but then they do some of the same things as well. You realize you have some overlap. We had a maintenance contract come to term. We paused and listed all of our tools and listed their functionality and made a matrix, then added to that what we wanted to look for in the future. Then we stepped back and we evaluated different vendors, and CA was one of those vendors. We looked at their offerings and from that process we decided to go with a CA suite of infrastructure management tools. View full review »

Senior NMS Architect at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We did not have a previous solution. I came onto the scene to help clean up and modernize a lot of our operations. This was one of the things we looked at. As one of my operation managers put it, we were driving down the road at 80 miles an hour with the windscreen painted black. Sometimes, we would roll down the windows and stick our head out the window, but we recognized it as a big gap. It was something that we needed: good fault monitoring. View full review »

Communication Systems Analyst at a healthcare company with 10,001+ employees
A couple other solutions. It cancelled some of those out. We switched because it was a bigger thing. We swapped so we could have support for just one monolithic thing, as opposed to a lot of little things. It just had more support, we could call somebody. It was very complex business software. We probably still don't use 40% of the solution at this point. View full review »

Senior Systems Engineer at GEICO
We were using CA Performance Center, and CA Spectrum is a logical extension of CA Performance Center. Between our management and CA themselves putting on the full-court press for sales, we decided to go that route. View full review »

We weren't using anything before Spectrum. We needed a product to monitor our network equipment for these type of things. View full review »
