Stable and highly scalable that's very good overall

Pros and Cons

  • "The stability is the solution's most valuable aspect for our organization."
  • "The interface is hard to use for us. It should be simplified."

What other advice do I have?

We're an IBM reseller. It's a great product overall. I would recommend the solution to other organizations. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
