We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It monitors and continuously tests everything that is of importance to you and your users. It could be everything from monitoring disk space to CPU usage to memory. It could include determining if the response time in your e-commerce platform is quick enough, or whether you have too many bounces from some of the pages on your website. You want to monitor anything that could cost you money or time or resources. You can do that with this system. It's very flexible."
"The API makes it pretty easy to integrate with any system."
"The Add data feature lets you gather any type of log and easily analyze it."
"The tool is efficient in collecting, monitoring and evaluating logs."
"The solution's most valuable aspect is its ability to get information about all of the security measurements in my environment."
"The feature I find most valuable, is the data integration."
"The most valuable feature in this solution is the log searching."
"The product retains a lot of log data for subsequent analysis."
"The initial setup was straightforward. We didn't find it to be too complex."
"The ability to create custom dashboards is one of the best features and that's typically why most people deploy Splunk. Users can create dashboards for just about anything."
"IT environments today are in constant flux. This is driven by the newer cloud technologies such as Kubernetes and Docker, etc. The whole Nagios-based monitoring system that OP5 is created on top of, is based on a host-service model. There is a need for a strategy on what to do with more dynamic environments. There is some cool stuff going on in that direction."
"The user interface is not what we are used to these days, and should be improved."
"In the next release, I would like to see more integration with other solutions."
"The product collects a lot of data but it does not assure that it collects all of it."
"The solution should have more sensors regarding fiber intelligence for security measures."
"I would like to see an improvement and some innovation in the customer interface."
"This solution is difficult to configure and the instructions are complex."
"It does not have a user-friendly interface and it is difficult to use."
"It would be useful if they provided some help pages. If you don't know too much about the tool, there should be more documentation readily available. It would be useful if they had a help button embedded in the solution so you could ask questions and get answers."
"The cost needs to be re-examined. It's extremely expensive to run. It's also expensive to expand. That's the number one complaint all of my customers have when it comes to Splunk. It's way too expensive compared to other solutions."
"OP5 has a very low price as a solution, compared to many other solutions out there."
"The product is a bit expensive considering the competition but the company may negotiate the price."
"This is an expensive solution."
