We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This product has helped us to maintain our OLAs (Organisation level Agreements) and SLAs (Service Level Agreements) by tracking incidents, requests, problem records, and change requests, all in the form of tickets."
"In BMC, you can do absolutely anything. You can customize, you can configure, and you can customize and develop pretty much anything."
"What I have found to be the most valuable is that it offers the radius deployment package not only to the BMC cloud but also to the public cloud such as Azure."
"Automatic orchestration is the most valuable. The feature for designating some cases or incidents to the right PM for resolution, first call resolution, and change management are also important. The self-service feature and knowledge base resolutions are helping the customers in resolving issues rather than opening tickets."
"It's a very integrated solution."
"We find the incident management module the best. The reporting part is also useful. We use a feature called smart reporting, and it is very beneficial for us."
"The most valuable features I have found to be the activity logs and the other features where you are able to continuously address issues and are able to annotate notes inside to convey them to the customer."
"It has the power to automatize several different tasks in the ITSM world."
"The most valuable features are the ITIL compliance and billing."
"We have found the reporting in this product to be very useful."
"The product teams are continuously on the products trying to improve them. If, for example, I ask for a change to be done in the software, the chances are in the next release it's going to be done and incorporated. It's this personal touch that I like."
"The product is very scalable and stable when used as a help desk once it is built out."
"To raise any ticket, there are too many fields to be filled and it makes generating tickets very time-consuming."
"They could be more responsive to feedback from their community board."
"In the next release, I would like to see AI used for classification or categorization."
"It can have more features for hardware discovery and hardware information. The integration with IQ operations management should be streamlined. ITSM and ITOM should be more integrated, and there should be better integration from Helix Discovery to Helix CMDB. There were some issues regarding this integration, and they were difficult to resolve in big environments. We have a lot of devices and users to manage. Therefore, the integration should be better."
"It needs to be more comfortable for the end-user."
"Its performance can be improved. Sometimes, there is a performance issue, and it is a little slow and difficult on the usage side. It would be beneficial for us if there is a lighter version of this solution. There is also a limitation on the number of columns and memory for extracting a report, and this functionality can be improved. We would like to have better integration and UI in this solution. The user interface should be easy to navigate. Its integration with other tools, such as SharePoint or Jira, can also be improved, which would be beneficial for us. In terms of new features, there should also be a mobile version. The desktop version is available, but the mobile version is not available, which is one of the challenges that our team has. For users who work on Remedy and who raise the ticket, it would also be very beneficial to have some chatbot features."
"The reports need improvement, it is not a good functioning tool."
"Some parts of the solutions are using the old interface."
"There is no cloud-based version and it would be helpful if it were available."
"I would like to see some kind of project management or portfolio management in a future version."
"They're pretty good but there's always room for improvement. There should be more templates that users can utilize immediately."
"The product is very difficult to use and configure and requires specialists."
"The business model for the company is to sell low and charge for customization, education or expertise."
"The tech support is terrible and that seems to be a part of their business plan."
"If you are looking for some kind of professional services form the OEM then you would have to purchase that."
"It is too expensive for a small business."
"It is not very expensive and not very cheap. It is somewhere in-between. Some of the features are more expensive. There are also additional costs. If you want to use most of the features, you need to pay more."
"I am not sure the exact price we pay for the solution but I know it is in the high seven-figure amount annually."
"The licensing fees depend on different criteria, including options and sizing."
"ManageEngine products will always be the lowest cost in category as that is part of their business model."
