We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The network security of BMC TrueSight Network Automation has been the best feature."
"This product has helped us because we can now do many tasks at once. Rather than copy one file to one device, we can do an entire group at one time."
"People like to use the dashboards to get an overview of their network."
"It is simple to manage and it is all done from a single dashboard."
"The monitoring features are very useful for network engineers."
"I think that their LAN automation is a very good feature."
"The solution has the capability to scale."
"I believe there could be new features in terms of the latest technology."
"The product should be expanded to include more hardware, beyond Cisco and Juniper devices."
"There is a limitation with the number of VRFs that you can have in your network, and this has caused us problems with some customers."
"The network, data center, and SD-WAN are all being treated as different services, but I would like to have only one solution to manage all of them."
"DNA Center has been on the market for a few years and they need to update it."
"The task failure reporting or provisioning failure reporting could be a little bit better in the UI, with more information given to the user."
"The solution can be quite pricey."
"Our licensing agreement is for three years."
"I do know that Cisco does offer some really good promotions for DNA Center to bring the costs down."
