Quotes From Members Comparing CA Spectrum vs Micro Focus Operations Manager

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
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.It helps our NetOps group actually handle alarms in a way that lets them see the bigger picture of those alarms, and how they might affect our services. It helps us communicate information about the network state better to services that might be impacted by a specific network condition.As the kind of enterprise that straddles the line between telco size and enterprise size, it scales for us, because we're not all the way at telco yet.​It covers a lot of different types of hardware. It can do a lot and saves us time.​It is very stable. We have not had any major issues in over 10 years.​The stability of the product is key. It never breaks, really. The stability and reliability of the Spectrum product have been top-notch.​I can use it to detect whenever things go wrong on my network.

The Performance Manager provides great insight into our systems' performance.It has greatly reduced the number and duration of outages as support teams are notified immediately when something goes wrong or even before something breaks.The integration with the ticketing tool makes sure that there is a record for every issue.It allows us to build dashboards for individual parts of the business. Our team members appreciate that they can just get a view of their part of the world without having to worry about anyone else's.The most valuable feature is its ability to integrate with everything.The broad integration possibilities, I'd say, with any kind of product, are probably the most valuable feature.

Cons
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.The Spectrum OneClick is a Java-based client, and that's aging. Really, before any new feature integration, I'd love to see a comprehensive rebuild of the UI.The upgrade process could be smoother. More of the steps around upgrading could be automated.A better integration with the UIM, as far as being able to do root cause analysis and that type of analytics.Needs better integration with all the other products in the Agile suite of tools; anything they could do to make that less complex, would be great.If nobody else has said the documentation needs improvement, let's go there. I understand, you can either write about it or you can do it. And most of us would rather they do it, but now that they've done it, those of us that didn't do it, we need to go and find: "Where did they write about this to tell us how to do it?" That's always lacking.We have had one support issue that's been open for a couple of months, and it is currently open.

Installing and upgrading the HPOM and Operations Agent software is not always easy and the process can be quite fragile. Once it is running, it is very quick and stable, but an upgrade can quite easily break something or terminate unexpectedly.I know that in the next version, X1005, they're moving to more graphical overviews, which should help our senior managers.Our issues are largely support related due to where we are and the knowledge base that we have here. This issue relates both HPE in general and to the technical products.We are waiting for quicker release cycles. Also containerized upgrade, so that you don't have to bring a system entirely down to make a minor upgrade, in fact, or a minor patch.

For the most part, CA has capabilities in pretty much everything that you would need. You just have to figure out where are you going to spend the most money for what you have to actually get done. You can do all these things but, which ones do you have to do? And that's hard to choose sometimes because you want to do them all.It’s a great tool, but an expensive one. Learn how to use it properly.It is very pricey. With the current trend of enterprises moving towards cheaper and more modern looking solutions like ManageEngine, SevOne, ServicePilot, and Paesller.
