I would recommend this program to others. I would certainly tell them to give it a shot. In the next version I would like to see better agents and better integration points. My rating for this solution will be eight out of ten. It is a very agile tool that allows you to collaborate across teams. That's something that I always recommend.

On a scale from one to ten, with one being worst and ten being best, I would rate Moogsoft a little lower than I expected when we originally adopted the product. The marketing is extremely good and sophisticated, but for me, it actually oversells the product. Because of that, I would rate it a six out of ten. As far as advice that I would give to others who are looking into implementing Moogsoft, I would either recommend it or not depending on what they are looking for it to do. It really depends on what they want to be monitoring. For example, if they want availability monitoring, performance monitoring, capacity monitoring, security monitoring, data quality monitoring — there are so many elements of monitoring that need to be weighed and considered. Other questions will be if this will be a solution for the infrastructure, is it a business process, is it for application monitoring. The dimensions are quite big, I think when you come back to the other question of what would I want to see from Moogsoft. In all those fields which I mentioned, you can build a matrix out of that. One dimension is the type of monitoring and the other is infrastructure, another is the application and business process. The user will really have to have a mapping of their approach on how they think they want to implement it. Capabilities that Moogsoft has could be way more powerful, but compared to the competitors, I think it is actually doing quite well. So maybe my expectation is very high. I came up with a rating of six considering my expectations. But comparing the competitors, I might give it an eight. That is how I see it, and what I expect from a monitoring solution. So it's either an eight or a six. It depends on how your question was meant.
