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 features are the bandwidth analyzer, the monitoring, the network analyzer, it has overall good performance, and an easy deployment.The people in technical support are very good.The monitoring is perfect, showing you the details for the utilization of resources and network bandwidth.I like SolarWinds support because it's 24/7. You describe your issues, your situation and maybe two or three hours later you can discuss a solution with a technical engineer.The biggest thing for me is that it provided enough information for me to monitor. It alerts and provides you with the information you need.A product that is well-tested and trusted in demanding situations.The most valuable feature is the alarm that is set up to trigger based on bandwidth utilization.The connectivity of the solution is very good.

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 pricing is expensive.The interface could be made more user-friendly.The Atlas module that is used for building the network map is very bad.It would be nice if SolarWinds added some technical protocols like Modbus. The market needs a simple solution for monitoring a technical device.Sometimes there are issues when upgrading to a new version of the product.The only thing that can be improved is to continually add to the existing capabilities of the product.This solution does not do a very good job when I am trying to look deeper into my internal network, in particular with respect to individual ports.My team has had a lot of issues with support.

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).

The price is more expensive than some other products, such as ManageEngine.The price of this solution is exceptional.It's expensive and there are costs in addition to the standard licensing.It is relatively inexpensive compared to other products in the same category.The cost is based on the number of nodes, so it is expensive when you have a lot of them.
