What needs improvement?

On NCM, reporting could be a bit better. It's completely become just one report. When I try to create a custom report, the solution just commits old server data. They need to make a health checkup report in a new release.

If you have 15 devices, you need 15 licenses, for example. That's one bundle. You don't pay for anything over… more»

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. We're a SolarWinds distributor. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.
