Quotes From Members Comparing BMC TrueSight Operations Management vs CA APM

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
It provides common administration, and a Single Sign-On Platform with RBAC, which eases the cross launch between multiple toolsThe tailoring of the knowledge modules has been particularly useful as I can streamline the agents to only report on critical events.It is very helpful to be able to apply rule-based routing to alerts.TSOM's ability to consolidate alerts into a single location and provide filtering of alerts is great.It has provided us with a single location to host all events to be viewed/monitored by our NOC. This has greatly helped them to streamline their processes.It allows our operations team to have one single application to reference when investigating issues in our environment.Signature baselines, which have allowed us to fine tune many of our events and significantly reduce the number of events generated.The ability to pull hosts together to show what processes are running, so it can be used for change management.

It is very useful and helpful with the analysis of historical performance data.WAS GC monitoring enhanced our application performance and DB SQL performance.The CA tools allow to me to get into detailed transactions for custom ranking, and be able to make predictions. It also gathers data. Some other tools may be good at one area, but not good overall, including the mainframe.It covers from mainframe, all the way to dotcom, for example. CA currently covers Amazon, Microsoft Azure, Office 365 monitoring.It has a random transaction trace which gives our customers the ability to look at how their transaction performs.This application pulls data in 15 seconds. You can imagine the enormous amount of data which streams through.Now, we know we have a problem, because there is a primary layer of alerting or metrics monitoring put in place, that is the good part.We are able to easily and quickly find some of the problems with the applications and coding, and some of the performance problems.

Cons
The knowledge modules could be more lightweight in size. At present, the installation packages can be quite large.BMC's solutions for cloud monitoring (monitoring of AWS and Azure resources) are very poor in stability and customization.BMC's online documentation is often incorrect or incomplete.I would really like to see out-of-the-box support for monitoring uninterruptible power supplies.More modules for less popular applications and better documentation.I think the ease of deployment needs to be looked at. It would be great if the deployment was faster and easier.The sizing (which is difficult), the maintenance of it and the upgrade paths. This is a difficult area which is not easy to cover, as every client has a different approach of implementing the product.

System incident analysis and performance monitoring need improvement.Documentation needs to be centralized.Its profiling. The uniqueness instead of me looking at sampling data, I need to know the m-1 event that actually triggered my scenario where that m event caused a catastrophic event, like a ripple effect; I need to know that m-1. What triggered my major event means I need to understand the event that triggered it and before the cause of that event itself.The initial setup is complex.The interface is getting a little old.One of the challenges is agent releases. So as we employ agents, they are done relatively manually. A little bit of automating of agent release would be helpful.The upcoming changes for the deployment process of the agent will help a lot, in that others have gotten to that point first.​It should be easier to install or set everything up. ​

Pricing and Cost Advice
The solutions are not the cheapest but are robust and stable. License model is rather complex and BMC do often change the model.Use conservative figures. In terms of hardware, monitored servers and also effort. The product is not cheap. But as with other products, you get what you pay for.

On pricing, CA is very competitive. I think that's going to help in the long run.Pricing and licensing are not issues.Negotiate a lot, but do not forget to buy the product because it is worth it.There is some research needed to determine licensing costs, based on the number of DataPower instances for the Nastel agent, for example.Althougth it is a bit expensive, it is really worth itDepends on the size of the product you need.
