We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is very stable. We never had any issues with stability."
"I have found the AppResponse, which is a packet capture solution, very good. It gives you the ability to drill down back in time. You've got all the packets there. You can troubleshoot it later, not immediately. It's very interesting."
"The most valuable feature is performance monitoring."
"We really like the scalability capabilities."
"The user interface was not good."
"The initial setup is straightforward, but you have to know a little about the product. It's not for everybody to just plug and play. If you know how the solution is implemented then it is straightforward."
"Technical support needs to be more responsive."
"The pricing is on the higher side of things. If they could lower it, that would be ideal."
"The price is a little bit high, especially because we have to pay an import tax."
