Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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."

"The scalability of monitoring, the breadth of supported network components, the scale of the number of monitoring events, and the flexibility in customization make this a well-rounded product.""Anything is possible with Tivoli. It's quite a robust system.""Support is one of the best aspects of this solution. NetCool is a good product that has good flexibility. There are a lot of documents available online which is one of the best features of IBM Tivoli Suite. Whenever an issue happens, rather than going to technical support, if you find the exact issue in Google, you can get tech notes for that particular issue.""The solution has very good integration capabilities."

Cons
"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."

"Customization and integration that you need to do to make the product fit your needs is very complex. It is not a product that somebody could easily pick up without any prior training or experience.""The solution is not user-friendly.""In terms of improvement, I would like to see more AIOps, Artificial Intelligent Operations in the next release. IBM develops new features for Power BI or Cognos Analytics, which is good. As of now, we use Cognos Analytics, we are not using Power BI. They have the Insight concept but we don't like that.""The solution is too expensive."
