We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is that everything can be consolidated into one dashboard."
"The initial setup is pretty straightforward. It's not complex at all."
"You can create an application topology that shows relationships between different components."
"It's a very good product overall."
"We use the on-premises version to monitor our systems and manage emails. All our systems use Operations Bridge, especially the critical systems."
"The most valuable features of the solution are its grouping scripts and event focus."
"We haven't faced any stability issues. There hasn't been any crashes or glitches."
"OpsBridge has good event correlation facilities and root-cause identification algorithms."
"The correlation feature is the most used feature. It allows you to correlate events from different sources and have more meaningful events."
"Similar to Micro Focus Network Node Manager, the most valuable features of this solution are its modern look and usability."
"The service takes a very long time to start and it requires a lot of resources."
"The pricing is a bit expensive for smaller companies."
"The initial setup of this tool is complex for people who lack experience with it."
"The pricing could be improved."
"It is a very complicated product. It's difficult to manage. Nowadays, products are very easy to manage, deploy, and integrate, but Operations Bridge is very complicated to manage."
"In a future release, we would like an improved upgrade process. When you upgrade it now, it first uninstalls everything and then reinstalls all the packages, which means any customization that you've done in the directories on the surface disappears."
"The price is quite expensive, and because of this, we may try another solution."
"The solution is overall "heavy", requiring multiple servers, even without HA."
"The deployment of agents on new CI should be improved. There should be some kind of automation to directly deploy them from the console. It can maybe have some more AI functions because most of the other tools are going in that direction."
"When we complete the security requirements, it is hard to manage. If we miss or skip a step, it is very difficult to find."
"The licensing cost for this solution is approximately $1,000 USD."
"The cost is very high."
"As OpsBridge is a suite of products bundled together, you may find yourself paying for software functionality that you don't actually use, e.g. Real User Monitor (RUM)."
"The pricing of Operations Bridges is acceptable to us."
