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

Pros
"The solution is great at being able to fetch almost any kind of file.""The most valuable feature that comes with Netcool/Impact is the ISPF APA support. It is inherent to Netcool/Impact, so I can use the ISPF of any other product, which I can invoke and consume through Impact, and do integrations, which is great. I run the Netcool desktop application so I can integrate with other applications in the ticketing system. It's a great ability being able to invoke ISPF and integrate."

"Memory and CPU utilization features are good."

Cons
"The solution is somewhat complicated. It's not exactly straightforward.""For improvement, I'd say the dashboard and the overall GUI could use some work. Although, I don't think that there's much improvement that Netcool really needs to achieve in this area, because when we're talking GUI, Impact is able to integrate with any third-party system and it comes with ISPF APA. It's more beneficial than Netcool/OMNIbus in this respect, and it's quite easy to handle."

"They can improve checking the status of the CPU, memory, and IO utilization from each task."
