Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Cisco DNA Center.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
We have had a lot of problems with the Cisco switches and have needed to upgrade the operating systems, which means that we have to upgrade the DNA. When we upgrade the DNA it means that we have to upgrade the ISE, also. If it is a large cluster then this process is painful. DNA Center has been on the market for a few years and they need to update it.
The network, data center, and SD-WAN are all being treated as different services, but I would like to have only one solution to manage all of them. Data is traveling from the inside to the outside layer, and I want to be able to fully control all of the data going in and out. It should not be set up as multi-service, but rather a single one. If you have old Cisco hardware such as switches or access points, or they are from another vendor, then they will not work with this solution. The hardware will still function but you will not be able to control it with DNA.
The pricing of this solution could be improved. There is a limitation with the number of VRFs that you can have in your network, and this has caused us problems with some customers. This solution does not support IP version 6. I would like to see better integration with Cisco Meraki.
Better compatibility with third parties and to other Cisco products because if versions are not perfectly matching requirements, it gives a lot of problems.
