CA Spectrum Previous Solutions

We have a combination of management support products that we are using concurrently. We have applications from our security provider, Panorama, for Palo Alto. We have Cisco products, which include Cisco DNA Center ( Digital Network Architecture) and Cisco ISE (Identity Services Engine). We have a multitude of other applications and services. But that is another thing. CA Spectrum is not a managing manager. The product is not an orchestrator. The product does not have a bi-directional API that will allow automation to occur to put the network back in compliance with the user's needs. Those are the services that are available in the cloud. People say they are more expensive by looking at a sticker price. But consider this: you buy it once and deploy it rather than try to do resiliency monologuing on your own and deploying across the world globally six or eight times. The repeated deployment is your real cost. View full review »

We used several solutions prior to this one. The reason we switched is that the combination was causing a problem and we needed to standardize. View full review »

We are moving from CA Spectrum because it is not a solution for us. We are moving to an open-source solution that is less expensive. View full review »
