The product should be expanded to include more hardware, beyond Cisco and Juniper devices.

I believe there could be new features in terms of the latest technology. I also think that more adapters could be added for the new cloud solutions. It needs to improve with the market. But, It has new features added this year and performance improvements.

There probably needs to be a little bit more collaboration between the Entuity teams and the BBNA teams. For our endpoint device monitoring we typically use a tool called Entuity. We buy it through BMC. TrueSight or BPPM typically does performance monitoring for servers, but for endpoint devices, such as routers, switches, etc., we typically use Entuity. The network automation tool keeps these configurations for us, keeps them all tight and clean, and makes sure things are synced up. But there's a lot of room for improvement in expanding the functionality of BBNA to work a little bit more tightly with Entuity. Right now they're still very siloed in terms of the toolsets. There might be some opportunities to grow that partnership. In terms of additional features, I'm wondering if they should be looking at integration with some other toolsets, such as Ansible on the Red Hat side, or other scripting capabilities on the Windows side. A little bit more thought could be put toward using those tools. We also use Atrium Orchestrator in-house. It's a run-book automation tool. Having more out-of-the-box orchestration examples in AO to leverage BBNA and TrueSight would be really good to see.
