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

Pros
Offers a single pane of glass to view inventory, code version management, and inner operations.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.The Spectrum tool improved our network assurance levels for our business units.All networks (or network equipment) are monitored through CA Spectrum.

The most valuable feature is the performance parameters of the system.I like the way the solution sends alerts and how it keeps on escalating them.Nagios monitors our servers, so we know if anything goes wrong and can solve the problem before it happens.It has made the life of the network operations staff more proactive in managing the resources of the infrastructure. It prevents disasters long before they can take place.Key features include the GUI interface, its notification capabilities, and the real-time reporting.

Cons
The company is trying desperately to sustain the platform by bolting on changes to it to enhance it. It is not a long-term solution.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.The CA Technologies sales team destroyed their relationship with our business units.It needs better integration with other CA products.OS monitoring needs to be better developed, as well as their services, e.g., cluster monitoring, URLs, etc.

The core version is no match for the XI version.I would like to see more training videos.It's not that easy to install the product itself. Also, the UI is a bit hard for regular users to navigate through.It is a bit slow due to latency.Making it a little easier to configure and set up from the start would help. There are multiple layers that you have to wade through to be able to set it up, to do it the right way, and to get it to do what you want it to do.

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).

Lessening the price point would be an improvement.Nagios Core is free to use.The Nagios Core (PNP4Nagios + Core) is free and can be setup by Netadmin within a few hours. The only additional cost is the cloud server.We have saved a lot of time, money, and effort in reducing disaster times, which is owed to Nagios quick alerting.It's free.
