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

Pros
The ability to transition from microscopic to macroscopic view, instantly, is very good.Providing real-time visibility for threat detection and prioritization - QRadar SIEM provides contextual and actionable surveillance across the entire IT infrastructure.It is very stable. We have not faced interruptions in the past four and a half years.It has improved comprehensive visibility for what is going on in the perimeters, and on the inside, as well.This solution has allowed us to correlate logs from multiple sources.We get events and make the correlation, or rules. In IBM, we can implement our customer's rules. We can have very clear status threats and severity of antigens.Provided that the report is prebuilt and I can find what I am looking for, the reporting is the most valuable feature in this solution.This solution provides me with various alarms, and I have found security issues with some of my other products.

The interface of the solution is good.The system's management and its alerts are the most valuable aspects of the solution.Our current costs are too high, and this tool will help us to better optimize our infrastructure.The virtualization solution supports data center virtualization, network and security.The root cause analysis feature is very valuable.What I like is that you can have different storage locations for different applications.The most valuable feature is server virtualization. It's been very useful.We use the on-premises version of this solution for log analysis and to find details about certain issues.

Cons
I would like to see a better GUI.AI is superb but need improvements.Technical support is good, but not great.We would like to see better instrumentation for debugging changes in the log flow.The interface is very old. IBM should remake it into a more modern interface.There are reports that I would like to generate that are either not included, or I cannot find.There is a lot of manual configuration required in order for the product to run smoothly, and I think that it could be made more automatic.It is very difficult to activate all of the network equipment, and it would help if it were made easier.

The pricing of the solution could be improved.The solution should be more user-friendly. The user interface and dashboard could be simplified.The dashboard needs to be improved because this is what I need to monitor my infrastructure.It's great for VMware, but it would be good if they had third-party logins.I don't use the solution on a day to day basis, so I'm not sure what specifically can be improved.I think that it should be able to integrate with other third-party backup and recovery solutions, more that it does now.The solution isn't user-friendly for admins.Documentation is lacking, including some guide as to how to use the expressions. It is not clear how to look for a log, for example. Some examples in the documentation might be helpful. I think that VMware had good documentation, but it's no longer hosted. The documentation is not as easy to understand as it was before.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing needs to be such that they are more competitive with other vendors.There are additional costs, such as the cost associated with the different hardware required for implementation and deployment. Along with the add-on apps, these are all additional costs, and they require licensing as well.In terms of additional costs, it depends on the subscription that you choose. There are plenty of options to choose from.Our licensing costs for this solution is on a yearly basis.It's too expensive. The licensing is also a little bit difficult to understand because you have to license it per event and per number of flows.QRadar is quite expensive. It wouldn't be worth it for a small business...I would like for them to lower the price.The pricing is good.

Pricing could always be lower. If it were free, I would be more satisfied.
