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

Pros
Even if it's a relatively technical tool or platform, it's very intuitive and graphical. It's very appealing in terms of the user interface. The UI has a graphically interface with the raw data in a table. The table can be as big as you want it, depending on your use case. You can easily get a report combining your data, along with calculations and graphical dashboards. You don't need a lot of training, because the UI is relatively very intuitive.The user interface is really modern. As an end-user, there are a lot of possibilities to tailor the platform to your needs, and that can be done without needing much support from Devo. It's really flexible and modular. The UI is very clean.One of the biggest features of the UI is that you see the actual code of what you're doing in the graphical user interface, in a little window on the side. Whatever you're doing, you see the code, what's happening. And you can really quickly switch between using the GUI and using the code. That's really useful.Being able to build and modify dashboards on the fly with Activeboards streamlines my analyst time because my analysts aren't doing it across spreadsheets or five different tools to try to build a timeline out themselves. They can just ingest it all, build a timeline out across all the logging, and all the different information sources in one dashboard. So, it's a huge time saver. It also has the accuracy of being able to look at all those data sources in one view. The log analysis, which would take 40 hours, we can probably get through it in about five to eight hours using Devo.

The solution is 100% stable. We really have had a great time working with it. It hasn't let us down.This solution integrates easily and very well with other technologies.We are now able to completely monitor our environment so we can review what is there, which is a big win for us.It is easy to use.The most valuable feature is that if the scanning does find something, it quarantines it. Then you can decide what you are going to do with it.The most valuable feature is the capability to correlate different events from different platforms that we feed into it.It has performed well and delivered the results that I have been looking for.It has good technical support, which is available around the clock. You can call up anytime and get whatever you want. My queues are resolved.

Cons
There's always room to reduce the learning curve over how to deal with events and machine data. They could make the machine data simpler.The Activeboards feature is not as mature regarding the look and feel. Its functionality is mature, but the look and feel is not there. For example, if you have some data sets and are trying to get some graphics, you cannot change anything. There's just one format for the graphics. You cannot change the size of the font, the font itself, etc.Their documentation could be better. They are growing quickly and need to have someone focused on tech writing to ensure that all the different updates, how to use them, and all the new features and functionality are properly documented.

The user interface could be more user-friendly.We cannot add new data sources to the most recent version.I would like to see improvements to the user interface.I would like to see fingerprint recognition included in the next release of this solution.The only issue I have with McAfee is the amount of computer resources that it takes... it's definitely impacting some of the other applications that are running on a computer at the same time.There are some banking and transactional cases that are local, South America transactions. I would like to see them add features that can be used locally, to make those transactions more reliable.I have to purchase a new box now. Its existing box is not scalable and I can't use it anymore.Product currently requires Flash.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We have an OEM agreement with Devo. It is very similar to the standard licensing agreement because we are charged in the same way as any other customer, e.g., we use the backroom.I'm not involved in the financial aspect, but I think the licensing costs are similar to other solutions. If all the solutions have a similar cost, Devo provides more for the money.It's a per gigabyte cost for ingestion of data. For every gigabyte that you ingest, it's whatever you negotiated your price for. Compared to other contracts that we've had for cloud providers, it's significantly less.

The cost is dependent on the customer's environment and requirements.We pay for our licensing fees on a yearly basis, and there are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.
