We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"One feature I like about CA Performance Management is the certification of the devices."
"I have found the cross analysis feature to be the most valuable."
"We were able to standardize the internal processes across all internal departments, resulting in almost an elimination of non-standard process flows through our organization."
"The most valuable feature is the auto-discovery, which is nice because you don't have to do anything to add a new component."
"This product provides good visibility into applications at the backend."
"What I like best is the configuration management functionality."
"The most valuable feature is automatic discovery."
"The fault management is perfect."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to put health checks in place not only for the infrastructure but for some of the services that are on top of the infrastructure."
"This solution is not very scalable."
"For us, the implementation was quite complex but it's because of the large number of different environments we're dealing with."
"We want to make our own choice for the AIOps solution and do not want to be forced to use the Broadcom OI solution by default."
"The interface is not nice and needs to be improved."
"There should be a facility to integrate with other monitoring applications that are currently running in the environment."
"Huawei devices are not properly supported, and there are incompatibility issues related to certain protocols."
"Event correlation only works on one server, rather than on all of the servers in the same cluster environment."
"I think the management or configuration of devices needs some improvement."
"Integration with some other tools, and integration with some Network Packet Broker, need some improvement."
"In general, the license cost will be about 30% of the total TCO for this tool (hardware/support team, OS costs, and OS management)."
"The product, support, and maintenance are all expensive, which is another reason that we are switching to another solution."
"The price is very high."
