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

Pros
We were able to standardize the internal processes across all internal departments, resulting in almost an elimination of non-standard process flows through our organization.The Spectrum tool improved our network assurance levels for our business units.All networks (or network equipment) are monitored through CA Spectrum.It is easy to understand and determine when and/or where the network is failing.The monitoring just comes to us: "Oh, there's something wrong with that machine." It tells us. There are some 50,000 machines or so, all doing different things. And if they go down we hear about it.

Cons
We want to make our own choice for the AIOps solution and do not want to be forced to use the Broadcom OI solution by default.The CA Technologies sales team destroyed their relationship with our business units.It needs better integration with other CA products.OS monitoring needs to be better developed, as well as their services, e.g., cluster monitoring, URLs, etc.Make it easier to certify devices.If they could interact with the MIBs of vendors better, and have a lot more pre-loaded ones, that would be amazing for us right now.

I would like to see a SIEM bundled together with this because customers are looking into better reporting and more proactive security solutions.There are European and US clouds and sometimes we mix them up. The solution should make determining the clouds more clear, or make one cloud instead of having separate ones.
