Anonymous UserServices Infrastructure Architect at a tech services company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It gives us visibility inside applications. It helps us to dig down and find the root cause of any issue within the network."
"Great out-of-the-box capability."
"One of the things that I like about DX Infrastructure is that the topology is good enough to see what is happening in the infrastructure. You also get alerts if something is happening in the network. There are many features and benefits. It is serving our customers in knowing exactly how their network is performing in terms of reliability. It also helps them in planning the capacity. They know how much bandwidth the branches are consuming."
"One feature I like about CA Performance Management is the certification of the devices."
"There is also room for improvement in the reporting. It is not really good enough, according to our customers. So what we now usually do is use Power BI to get them the kinds of reports they want."
"The company has not kept pace with developments."
"The only challenge that I have with this solution is the reporting part. The users are not really comfortable with the kind of reports they are getting. Sometimes, they want to see reports in their own format. Customizing those reports with Jasper is not very easy. It could be because of the knowledge gap. If you have the knowledge of how Jasper can be configured to suit customer requirements in terms of reporting, it is good. There was a time a customer complained about one issue related to Netflow analysis. Broadcom has a separate model for that, but the customer wanted everything bundled together. It could also have IP management so that I am able to see or analyze IPs so that the IPs that are already in use don't get assigned."
"This solution is not very scalable."
"CAD $400,000 annually."
"Customers pay for the license and the support."
