Time sheets are a powerful tool.As of late, I really like the BI functions.The most valuable features are the requests and incident tracking.The in-service catalog is quite useful.XFlow (Temperature) and Service Point together provided an extremely user-friendly and collaborative experience to the point of making it easy for all users of the product, whether end-users or analysts.The most valuable features of this solution are reporting, configuration monitoring, and the Request and Incidents workflow.It has all our configurations. All our infrastructure configurations are on a single pane of glass to view, allowing for one single point of information.It helps when you have an incident or performing a problem change management process.

To raise any ticket, there are too many fields to be filled and it makes generating tickets very time-consuming.We have experienced outages, because some other customers did something on the same cluster that we share.It has created more layers of bureaucracy.

Report solutions are a little short.The CA products integrate well together but I would like to see better integration with third-party solutions.When I am reviewing an incident, sometimes there is too much information on the same screen and it is difficult to discern what is of value.The cost of this solution is too high, which is why we're leaving.Diversifying notification methods with pop-ups or ready-made WhatsApp or Skype integration packages would be welcome.The monitoring tool is in need of improvement.The interface for the users is a bit old-fashioned and not user-friendly.We would like the CMDB to be populated automatically. At the moment, everything is manually created.
