Presales Consultant at a tech vendor with 10,001+ employees
Good database support and centralized management, but the reporting and dashboards need improvement

What is our primary use case?

In my previous company, I was using this solution to implement monitoring callbacks. Currently, I work for a system integrator and I am implementing DPAs for some of our clients. We have an on-premises deployment.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature of this solution is the support for older databases and the ability to manage them in a centralized dashboard."
  • "Technical support for this solution needs to be improved."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is not to use the default reports. DPA gives very detailed information with customer reports. If you have time to investigate then you will find many good examples of reports and dashboards online. The solution is quite ready to use as soon as you install it, although there are a lot of custom things that can be implemented. Overall, this is a good solution but it needs easier reporting and more customizable dashboards. Also, scalability for the Orion sites needs to be improved. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
