We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is very easy to configure because we are using an agent-less version. You can very quickly implement a collector for monitoring device servers."
"The best part about ServiceNow Discovery is that it is included in the ServiceNow suite."
"It's a single system of record and it captures the relationships."
"They provide the ability to see into the Discovery tools I want. They offer the best tool view."
"The process involving the original setup of the solution is excellent."
"The biggest advantage of ServiceNow is the value that it brings."
"I find that the Discovery and scripting features are the most useful."
"The initial setup is pretty easy."
"It does a good job of collecting the data that's necessary for data centers, and IT's operations."
"It doesn't have the complete application-level topology. It could have service topology and business service monitoring. I would like to see how business service monitoring will function with agent-based installation, and how flexible and business-oriented it is for service modeling and service infrastructure. I have a lot of experience in using business service monitoring, service topology, and service hierarchy functionalities in similar products from BMC and Micro Focus (OpenView), and I want to see how these functionalities will look like in ScienceLogic."
"The service mapping component is less developed than it is in other solutions, and is in need of improvement."
"Without improvement in the patters, applications can't be discovered"
"In terms of improvement, I would like for it to be possible to use without coding. I would like a dropdown so that every customer can do it easily for himself and can understand it."
"The solution needs to improve the cost of the solution. There are a few different solutions and they do act the same and have the same types of capabilities, however, the cost is quite high."
"They can expand on the plugins for some of the other tools."
"On the Software Asset Management part of it, I expect additional reconciliation and Discovery features there."
"Technical support has not been helpful when we have come across problems."
"When you switch versions, for example, when you go from Paris to Quebec they will introduce many new things and occasionally things break when they do that."
"Its price could be lower, but for what you pay, you got a lot of value from its features and functionalities. Customers always want a discount or a cheaper solution."
"This solution is a paid option within the ServiceNow framework."
"It's a bit expensive compared to other products in the market, but it's worth the money you pay because it's far advanced in terms of features, automation, and capabilities compared to other products."
"There is a subscription for ServiceNow Discovery. It's expensive, but I think it's one of the best solutions on the market, so it's worth it."
"The price could be better. It's a bit on the pricey side."
