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.

We haven't really experienced any glitches or bugs.Great monitoring of network devices.The ability to create custom dashboards is one of the best features and that's typically why most people deploy Splunk. Users can create dashboards for just about anything.The initial setup was straightforward. We didn't find it to be too complex.The product retains a lot of log data for subsequent analysis.The most valuable feature in this solution is the log searching.The feature I find most valuable, is the data integration.The solution's most valuable aspect is its ability to get information about all of the security measurements in my environment.

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.

They do not have all the features that I expect right now.Splunk would be better if some tools were integrated to be able to take action on security or network concerns.The cost needs to be re-examined. It's extremely expensive to run. It's also expensive to expand. That's the number one complaint all of my customers have when it comes to Splunk. It's way too expensive compared to other solutions.It would be useful if they provided some help pages. If you don't know too much about the tool, there should be more documentation readily available. It would be useful if they had a help button embedded in the solution so you could ask questions and get answers.It does not have a user-friendly interface and it is difficult to use.This solution is difficult to configure and the instructions are complex.I would like to see an improvement and some innovation in the customer interface.The solution should have more sensors regarding fiber intelligence for security measures.

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).
