Quotes From Members Comparing CA Spectrum vs SevOne

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

Flexible architecture: You can extend the system and its capacity by attaching another cluster pair.With this tool it is interesting to show the info to the client and explain where the traffic is.It's given us the ability to create various real-time network performance reports and distribute them to any colleague who can access these reports immediately.The automation feature is good because if your CMDB is OK and it is already in sync, then the automation part is good to go.Scalability. I have never had to worry about how to handle really big environments.The monitoring of the network is very customizable. That is its unique feature.

Cons
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.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.

SevOne should work with the graphs legend functionality.The method of searching for SIP and the way to create the groups.Software upgrades can be tricky is not easy.There is no service mode setup in this monitoring tool if you want to snooze alerts for any specific amount of time, to account for any activity change or major incident.The GUI: both the dashboard/user view and the admin tool.User-friendly, multi-tenancy.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost of some of these products are a little cost prohibitive, which is unfortunate. We have to find lower cost solutions for some of the things that we have to pull in. 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.

Prices per license are not huge, but they exist.It is inexpensive compared to other monitoring tools.Choose a SevOne partner who can provide SevOne as a service and can deliver professional services and maintenance.Have a bank of licenses, because it is about the number of objects (RAM, ports, CPU, etc.).
