CA Unified Infrastructure Management Previous Solutions

Mustapha Kaaniche
Manager at Neuroses IT
We are partners for CA but we also partner with other providers, like small French providers for the local market, not the worldwide market. we can use UIM for the best monitoring and use features from other products as well. CA lets partners work with other products. We are honest about the futures of the CA products. Most of the time, it is stronger than the other products. View full review »

We actually had UIM before it was UIM. It was Nimbus in 2004. Then it went to Nimsoft, then CA bought it and then rebranded it CA UIM. When it got brought into our company, in 2004, we used it for Synthetic transactions, to monitor the email and different products on the web, and the response times to that. And then we were using a different product for our network monitoring. We wanted to try to eliminate some of the excessive tools we had so we moved our network monitoring into CA UIM at that time. When we first moved on to UIM, and brought the network monitoring in, at that time, the event correlation product wasn't built in - so one event happens and then it triggers three or four other things. And when we were doing that, the product we were getting rid of did do that. CA had said that that would be on the roadmap. It seems like the roadmap has changed now, and they're doing more of the event correlation with Spectrum, but we don't own Spectrum. So we have a little bit of a struggle there with the event correlation, and it seems like CA is not doing the event correlation with their SNMP Collector probe. They've moved more towards Spectrum.

Our previous tool, Microsoft SCOM, was not meeting expectations. The cost, the return on investment for it, was not there at all. With UIM, the ROI is way up there. With the other tool, the admin time versus the value you were getting was just not there. I hear they've made improvements to SCOM now. But we went a different direction. And we're happy that we did.

Senior Systems Engineer at a healthcare company with 10,001+ employees
We were using a different vendor, different product and it went end-of-life. I call it "TM-ART" some people call it TMART, it is from BMC. We had to find another product. View full review »
IT Manager at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We moved from the HPE product suite two or three years ago. I was not a part of that, but the main complaint with HPE was the support was locking. That is really about it. We did migrate from a different solution, which had a similar functionality. I would not say that it necessarily added to it, but I received feedback from the admin who administers the tool itself that it is a lot easier to use and very user friendly for the teams.

We have SolarWinds and we had some older Spectrum products that CA had, as well. But, the user interface was not as modernized as UIM. The product we had was just nearing it's end of lifecycle for us, and we needed to move on to something else that the users would be more comfortable with using. View full review »
Tool Admin at BCD Travel
We were using about four or five different solutions and everybody had to have all these different tools up at the same time. We were looking for one where we could just have one solution. View full review »

We had no previous solution. It was the early days of Windows NT 3.5. We decided to go with CA in the late 1990's, and we have been with CA ever since. View full review »

This was our first implementation of this type of solution. We had done an internal proof of concept or proof of value. That is where we came up with using the tool. View full review »
Senior Director at a retailer with 1,001-5,000 employees
We were a previous user of CA NSM. From a supportability perspective, we did not want to continue using something that CA would not support. It was a logical step. It allowed us to go and migrate from NSM to UIM. So far, it has worked well. View full review »

Senior Manager Information Technology Infrastructure at a insurance company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Previously we had multiples tools to monitor IT infrastructure and other apps e.g ManageEngine to monitor databases, Nagios to monitor telco devices (switches, and routers, etc.) We switched to CA UIM because we had a lot of issues when we tried to correlate events and get unified metrics from our monitoring tools databases, in the same way we had maintain multiple tools and open tickets with multiples vendors.

Senior Consultant at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
We were using HPE Operations Manager and SCOM. We switched because it's less resource demanding and has more functionality out of the box. Especially when it comes to support for different monitoring techniques, so that fewer custom-made solutions (scripting, etc.) are required. There are probes available for most kinds of monitoring metrics, applications, and operating systems. View full review »

We were using CA Nimsoft Monitor, and we knew we had to invest in UIM because NISM was a few years past sunset. We realized that we needed to embrace the latest technology being offered by CA. View full review »

We used Spectrum. We switched because UIM has new features or other features which are much better than Spectrum. View full review »

IS Team Lead at a insurance company with 5,001-10,000 employees
We used eHealth, which was owned by CA. It was getting close to end of life, and it was also stuck on SNMP version 2. Moving to UIM allowed us to remove ourselves from the REST registry, and start doing agent deployment. View full review »
