Typically within IT technology and network security, you are worried about the LSI (Linear Shift-Invariant). That would be measured as one (or really zero) to four output-to-session level. Once you start moving into the cloud, then your application performance and your user experience change. It becomes a focal point because you can not control the infrastructure that you do not own. This is why everybody is saying that they do not care about infrastructure. The reason they do not care about it is because everybody is looking at the application performance based on the user's experience. You can not do that in a centralized IT organization and a global SAS deployment. The platform capability for CA Spectrum is built on an existing platform that they are trying desperately to sustain and then they bolt all these changes to it to enhance it. You can not do that. That is one of the reasons their solution is not very good or it will not be sustainable. View full review »

This solution is missing the in-depth SDN correlation due to the late arrival of Spectrum VNA features and supported SDN networks. The various setups of the SDN networks are not always supported (yet) by the Spectrum VNA engine. Integration with non-Broadcom AIOps solutions is a known area. We want to make our own choice for the AIOps solution and do not want to be forced to use the Broadcom OI solution by default. For our size, a redundant based docker platform should be supported for large scale environments with more than 80,000 devices. This will have a very strong positive impact on the effort we need to spend in maintaining our large scale Spectrum solution and the related cost. The time to market for the new Spectrum solution will be reduced dramatically if this becomes available. View full review »

This solution is too complicated to use for us, especially if you have many components. It's too big for us, which is one of the reasons that we will no longer be using it. It’s Cloud be difficult to upgrade from one version to the next. View full review »
