Pros
This product provides good visibility into applications at the backend.The most valuable feature is the auto-discovery, which is nice because you don't have to do anything to add a new component.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.I have found the cross analysis feature to be the most valuable.

Cons
There should be a facility to integrate with other monitoring applications that are currently running in the environment.The interface is not nice and needs to be improved.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.For us, the implementation was quite complex but it's because of the large number of different environments we're dealing with.

Even though this is available in separate software (iSPI) there is potential in making the reporting more SLA-aware and more intuitive.Only to improve the GUI.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The product, support, and maintenance are all expensive, which is another reason that we are switching to another solution.In general, the license cost will be about 30% of the total TCO for this tool (hardware/support team, OS costs, and OS management).
