It's also easy to manage and monitor the environment. Instead of being reactive, it's proactive."

"The threshold alerting is the most valuable feature.""It is easy to access and discover devices, as well as monitor them automatically. The topology discover is also a useful feature.""The most valuable feature is the monitoring of resources.""We no longer have to manually search for problems because we are alerted when something in the network goes down.""The interface in the last few years it has been a lot greater, they are much more user-friendly.

Cons
"The two views into the system are very good but could be extended to further customization to fit the need of end users in a variety of roles.""The initial setup is a bit complicated. It needs a technician who is very aware of the flow and how to officially set up the flow chart, etc.""The dashboard has some limitations and should be more user-friendly.""The storage level monitoring needs improvement. It needs storage level monitoring on the server itself. That feature is lacking right now.""The licensing for this solution is not straightforward and should be improved.""The pricing of the solution is high. They should work to adjust the pricing model to see if they can help reduce costs.""The licensing model is confusing.""The solution is a bit difficult to configure. There are quite a number of configurations and plugins that you must handle early in the process."

"I would like to see them do an enhancement to the application monitoring. A lot of other products do better application monitoring so they should do some improvements to the application monitoring.""Pricing is too high relative to how many devices we use. The price list is not linear to number of devices.""I would like to see better integration with switches so that you can see what is connected to each port, what the traffic is, and have a network map automatically generated.""The pricing for this solution has gone up quite recently, which has led some of our customers to buy an alternative product.""One of the biggest things that made us start to look at another product is we're not able to have an end to end monitoring from a user perspective throughout the system and back to the user. All the monitoring is from inside out, we need something that also can give us from outside in.""Adding on services increases the cost and on the version we have there is no option for ATM monitoring.""I think there are a few bugs now. Although they give some resolution for this, we cannot share the network remotely because of our company policy.""Integrations with other devices. I want to have a product that has full integration with my active directory so I can track user activity. I want to track my complete user activity, so I'm looking for a product to implement in the near future, which will have full integration with my network and active directory users. It became very difficult to track user activity."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"As far as cost, it was around six hundred thousand rands ($40,500) for the year, for the renewals. That's the total cost for a four thousand node system including support and maintenance.""The licensing costs depend on the number of devices and accounts that are being monitored by the solution.""The initial cost is low and the add-ons are reasonable."

More ManageEngine OpManager Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Pricing is reasonable compared to other products.""I'm not sure, but it's expensive. We don't pay any additional fees.""The choice of version depends on the number of points, or devices, that you want to monitor, and this makes the product expensive.""The pricing can be on the expensive side when considering competing products.""There are some subscription charges that are quite heavy. I need to pay for support every year and these charges can be quite expensive. Aside from the initial cost for the tool, you need to pay additionally for support."
