No issues with stability.The most valuable aspects of the solution are its ease of use and its ease of implementation.People are very pleased with the implementation.The features I find most valuable is the querying and alerting capabilities.This solution makes it a lot easier to figure out trends within very different data sources, which makes it easy to see why something is misbehaving.This solution allows me to have true visibility for any metrics when it comes to my cloud, and private.

Cons
Having an integrated asset management tool, where I can plug in things that are offline, would be good.It would be nice to have remote access to the solution via a tablet. They also need remote control from a PC. Right now, to complete the technical support process, you have to have a tool to access the PC, and check the problems.I would like the solution to allow for more direct interaction with computers. I can open tickets and I can see their status, but I can't interact directly with the computers themselves.

It could use a URL document server. Everything in the market is moving towards automation and everybody's looking for the single click operations as well relational data locality.They could make it more easy to plug-in data so that a nontechnical person will be able to use it, like accountants or finance people. That way they don't have to ask us.The implementation is a long process that should be improved.In the new version, I would love to see more prediction capabilities. It would be great if one could see the alerts get a little more enriched with information and become more human-friendly instead of the technical stuff that they put in there. I think those would be really awesome outcomes to get.I would like to see more out-of-the-box dashboards for in-depth application monitoring of standard products that are out there.I would like to see integration with Kubernetes cluster and APIs so that you can manage the entire stack.
