We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The single sign-on is the solution's most valuable featureThe most valuable feature is the integration with the Active Directory.The most valuable feature is that it meets the requirements of the customer. You have a lot of features in the product. Every product has them, but the question is, are these products going to meet the requirement of the customer?I liked the debugging part. There are only two files (trace file and log file) that you need to look into while performing debugging, and the logs give you the exact info on where and what needs to be fixed.You can quickly deploy the entire product with a basic config within couple of hours.

Cons
We're currently unable to find information about if the solution can do a full implementation with SQL. Some better and more accessible documentation for new users or those curious about the product would be helpful.To add more value to this solution it needs to be more user-friendly.CA has reporting at the moment. With the reporting, every particular segmented product has a reporting engine. I would like to see centralized reporting for all of them together.The GUIs are not very clear, especially when integrating with other products from CA.
