The user interface is not what we are used to these days, and should be improved. For example, the dashboards are easily customizable to a certain degree, but not as well as a product like Tableau. From the visual aspect, it could look a bit fancier. Functionality-wise, this product is missing the NetFlow monitor.

The web-based UI is functional. It's in need of an update. There is a large, ongoing project to release a redesigned web interface, to which we are providing feedback. That's going to be really exciting. OP5 has always been web-first. There are no clients to install. It's always just a web interface. There are a couple of things in need of improvement that are major. Some of them are on track. IT environments today are in constant flux. This is driven by the newer cloud technologies such as Kubernetes and Docker, etc. The whole Nagios-based monitoring system that OP5 is created on top of, is based on a host-service model. There is a need for a strategy on what to do with more dynamic environments. I know that is a fluffy description, but that's one key thing. There is some cool stuff going on in that direction. We, as a partner, are helping a couple of clients integrate with cloud environments, which is really cool. Right now, we're focusing a lot on automating the configuration of monitoring systems. That's something that needs improved APIs. Finally, it needs a unified, central way to manage and configure agents. That would be a key feature.
