CA Unified Infrastructure Management Customer Service and Technical Support

Senior Monitoring Administrator at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
We've had some concerns, especially since CA's acquisition and re-branding of Nimsoft. For a while, there was a dedicated support center just for the monitoring product. But now, there's a more standardized support structure where Tier 1 is not as specialized. I haven't, however, had a lot of cases to claim that it's worse than before, but we have had tickets that have dragged on for a long time. There was an instance where they fixed a bug after 6-8 months, but it was the wrong bug. There are a couple of threads on their forum about comical support interactions where they get told, "Oh, that's an enhancement. Go type it and we'll vote on whether to fix it. Go type it out on the forum." I don't think that's always the experience in every case, but we have had some challenges like that, where it's like, "How are you calling this an enhancement? This is just basic core functionality that's not working" and getting agreement on that. At times that's been a challenge. View full review »

They're good. Their response time has been pretty good. They don't necessarily always have the answer I want, but that may be because the answer I want doesn't necessarily exist, so I can't fault them for that. But overall the response is pretty good. As far as the turnaround time, it's fast, the quality of the support answers that we get is usually pretty good. There have been times where its been a little bit insufficient, in the sense that we might have needed to move it to a different engineer, or they may need to escalate it to go to their development team and get some answers, and the time frame on that can slow down a little bit. But for the most part, it's been pretty good. View full review »

Manager at Neuroses IT
I had to call them one time at 4am, and I think they saved my life, because they called me back about five minutes after I opened the case. It was a high-impact incident, and they resolved it after about 10 or 15 minutes. So I'm really happy with the technical support. They are nice guys and technically good. View full review »

Senior Tool Admin at BCD Travel
Support is great. We have a great partnership with our vendor, and they're very responsive to our needs. And they have escalation paths. So when they hit a snag, they always escalate to the back end and we get really good results from them. View full review »
Senior Systems Engineer at a healthcare company with 10,001+ employees
Technical support is great. They've been wonderful. The communication has been great. It also helps that, being a support person in my career in the past, I know what to fill out in the ticket and to help them. So we jive on what's needed and what's not. Putting things in the ticket that help them, up front, shortens the life of the ticket. View full review »
IT Manager at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
The individual that manages the product itself used tech support. She received a response/resolved within 24 hours. She found them to be knowledgeable. View full review »

I would rate the technical support as 9/10, since the support provider always showed knowledge and was able to solve the problems. The only negative point is the availability as they are usually late in responding. View full review »
Tool Admin at BCD Travel
They are helpful once you get to the senior engineers, usually. The first level has not been the most helpful, but maybe a lot of our issues just require higher engineers. I am not sure. View full review »

They are actually very good. Technical support is good. If we get to product support, the product manager is responsive. We have expressed some concerns and areas for improvement, and they were addressed. View full review »
Engineer at a logistics company with 1,001-5,000 employees
It is difficult to get their time to instrument their applications. So, it is not the product that is difficult to work with, it is getting the people's time to work with us. For technical support, we sourced knowledge from one of our in-house partners, which is a contract resource type of thing. View full review »
Senior Director at a retailer with 1,001-5,000 employees
My experience with technical support has gone fairly well. We had some challenges with a particular plugin getting towards implementation. It required an enhancement in order for us to enable the features we needed to go-live. Within the scope of 45 days, they were able to enhance the plugin, roll it into a GA fixed release for the code, and you will see it again in the next full release of the product. View full review »
Abe Shaker
Monitoring And Reporting Engineer at a university with 1,001-5,000 employees
A-plus. Any time we call up support, if the issue isn't resolved that day, I'm surprised. And if we ever do have anything that needs escalation, our account rep is always there to make sure that our needs are taking care of. View full review »
Enterprise Monitoring Design Engineer at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
I haven't used tech support for UIM recently but I have used CA's technical support in general. I would say they're responsive but can take a little time, if it has to go back to development for a review. View full review »
