What is most valuable?

It has many great features, but in most of the companies that I have done consulting for, they rarely use them as it requires an advanced level of knowledge of the tool. Event Configuration: A tool in its simplest form creates business logic... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Reduces the false positives, by creating our own business logic with the Event Configuration. Allows us to have a single console/notification point, with the alarms of all the tools that we use for monitoring.

What needs improvement?

It’s like having a Ferrari, without a professional driver. Most companies don’t use all the good features. The out-of-the-box features are just too poor: (Ping, CPU, Disk and Memory, Process, and File Systems). CA Spectrum is an... more»

What do you think of CA Unified Infrastructure Management?

Making IT Monitoring a Snap with CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap Snap can be used in a wide variety of monitoring situations, such as to track servers, virtual machines, applications, databases, network and storage devices. We tested version 7.1 of Snap on a network where it quickly discovered our Windows, Mac and Linux machines in February 2014. It is free and fully functional to monitor up to 30 devices, with a paid version for larger networks.

How has it helped my organization?

SCOM provided end-to-end monitoring for all aspects of the infrastructure, including web sites, network devices, databases and applications. Now, c-level management can easily see overall service-level dashboards and SLAs for mission-critical... more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see true multi-tenancy support. When it comes to service provider type of customers, it's quite difficult to have a complete monitoring view for different tenants. The System Center suite is not designed for true multi-tenancy... more»

What is most valuable?

TrueSight Operations Manager is a combination of different components (applications) like Presentation Server, Impact Manager, and AppVisibility Manager and IT's Data Analytics, but it provides a seamless integration and a holistic view with... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Faster, more efficient, better views for the operators to view. A more centralized approach to managing the infrastructures. Improved app visibility features.

What needs improvement?

There are no broader areas of improvement. It would vary, environment by environment. As such, there are no outstanding bugs or defects that are not documented.

What is most valuable?

TBSM is a rock, and our house would have crumbled without it. The most valuable feature for my team is the ability to taken event feeds from all/any source tool (we leverage 20+) and put them in a single pane of glass. Since we also have an... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Being able to manage the entire flow of events firing on alerts set in so many source consoles, let my team correlate seemingly disparate break points and jump out to the source tool for trending and issue isolation.

What needs improvement?

TBSM is being replaced for our work by another Tivoli tool - DASH. This replacement will address the biggest area of improvement. We need the most commonly leveraged real-time metric trends from the source tools in the same pane of glass as... more»

What do you think of IBM Tivoli NetCool OMNIbus?

Back in 2004 after years of going from strength to strength with Netcool, the world of computer infrastructure started to change radically rather than by slow evolution. With the introduction of things like Virtualisation, B2B gateways (into other companies) etc we were seeing a massive increase in challenges like complexity, dynamic constant change in the infrastructure and lack of viability into the infrastructures of our partners, who provided key elements of our customers applications. The result of all these revolutionary changes in our infrastructure was that Netcool itself started becoming less effective, and hence we started to see a swing back to reactive management at the expense of proactive. I believe we need to see far more radical innovation in this area.
