"We find its ability to track what's going on with each request very valuable. We are also able to merge ticket requests and assign them to different groups in the company. We have another department that uses the same system.""The overall functionality of the product is excellent."

Cons
"Simplifying the user interface would go a long way to making it more usable.""The product could allow more programmatic opportunities through better development of the API.""I would like to see more integration with other solutions.""We cannot depend on this solution to manage all of the data center's infrastructure.""Normally, UCS Director is used primarily for orchestration, but when we look at a non-Cisco data infrastructure components, the UCS Director needs a bit more improvement in terms of integration with third-party systems and with existing older systems."

"They can improve the search. While searching the inventory, when I cancel a selected category, the search box disappears, and I have to reload the page. It is a small glitch. Currently, we can have only one plan per subscription. All users have to be on the same plan. We can't have two users for plan A and five users for plan B. It might be good if there was an option to have different plans within one subscription so that you can assign each agent to the corresponding plan.""The product should look at BCM or ServiceNow and see if there are features that would make nice additions. It would help them stay competitive."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The cost of this solution is significant."

More Cisco UCS Director Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It is good for the price you pay. It has different plans. If you need all features, you need to go for a higher plan. Currently, with the second tier plan, you cannot completely separate the group of agents. So, the agent in each group can see another person's ticket. You also cannot modify the rules based on the viewable, readable stuff and cannot have a custom role in this plan. If you want to do that, you have to go for a higher plan. It works in our case because it doesn't matter if the other group can see our ticket because it doesn't contain anything sensitive. We also didn't need the project or change management features. That's why we didn't go with a higher plan.""The pricing information is on their website. It's my understanding that their Pro Plan, for example, is around $89/month."
