Great user profiling and BYOD facilities; user friendly with good dashboards and reporting
Pros and Cons
  • "Good user profiling and BYOD facilities."
  • "Lacks application level visibility on the dashboard."

What is our primary use case?

This is a data management tool that we sell to the hospitality industry. It enables the control of user profiling and the BYOD facilities can be configured through that. It can be used on personal devices but is authenticated and managed to the data application platform. I'm a pre-sales engineer and we are partners with Alcatel.

What is most valuable?

I think the best features are the user profiling and the BYOD facilities. The solution is also user friendly with good dashboards, reporting and documentation. 

What needs improvement?

I think the solution would be greatly improved by adding application level visibility on the dashboard. 

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using this solution for about six years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable, we have about five engineers certified to deal with the product because we are resellers.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is very good. They generally respond within a few hours. 

How was the initial setup?

It's a little complex deploying on-prem because it requires deployment of the platform and everything. Installation to the cloud is straightforward. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I believe Alcatel has three licensing models. The cloud version has an annual license. On-prem versions have a one-year, three-year or five-year option. The pricing of this product is on the high side but there are several discount mechanisms available to the Asian market.  

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. 

I rate this product a 10 out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud
