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

Pros
"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."

"The solution is very easy to use.""The sandboxing feature is very important.""It's easy to use and the fact that I can schedule the report to come to my inbox at set times is very convenient for me.""The solution is quite stable. I haven't had issues with it crashing on me. I don't recall running into any bugs or glitches. It's very reliable so far.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the stability, it's actually tailored for that.""It's quite easy to use, and it's easy to find the necessary information from the web.""The functionality of the solution is excellent.""The ability to manage everything from the cloud is going to be the most valuable by far with this solution."

Cons
"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."

"There are European and US clouds and sometimes we mix them up. The solution should make determining the clouds more clear, or make one cloud instead of having separate ones.""I would like to see a SIEM bundled together with this because customers are looking into better reporting and more proactive security solutions.""The solution should allow users to keep the data for longer than the current periods. I can't get any historic data after more than a month. I would like to be able to, after a year, look for trends from the past 12 months. It would make things much easier.""When it comes to technical support, the problem we have found is that if an issue comes, it takes a day to get everything resolved. It could be faster. They can be better at optimizing how they answer tickets in terms of response times. There must be ways to make the process more streamlined. It would make it easier for their clients.""Reporting is an area that can be enhanced.""We need some integration or communication between the endpoint and the firewall.""The command-line interface could definitely be improved in future iterations. It's lacking right now.""Currently with the solution, if you want to manage more than one FortiGate you have to use a VM, and a VM can control up to 10."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

More DX Spectrum Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price is over $1,000 USD annually.""The pricing is mid-ranged, it's not very expensive but it's not the cheapest or most affordable in the market.""The license does not include many of the features that are necessary, which means that you have to pay extra for them."
