We performed a comparison between BMC TrueSight Operations Management and ITRS Geneos based on real PeerSpot user reviews in five categories. After reading all of the collected data, you can find our conclusion below.
Comparison Results: BMC TrueSight Operations Management is chosen over ITRS Geneos based on its robust event management tool, precise monitoring and metrics data, and Helix Innovation Studio for app development. ITRS Geneos is customizable with real-time monitoring, but needs improvement in dashboard creation, deployment automation, and cloud monitoring. BMC TrueSight Operations Management is affordable with a clear licensing model for companies of all sizes, while ITRS Geneos may be too costly for non-finance industries.
"The most valuable feature of BMC TrueSight Operations Management is the dashboard presentation server."
"Helix Innovation Studio is a very good feature. It allows us to develop our own enterprise applications and make them available for the customers."
"What I like best about BMC TrueSight Operations Management is that it allows you to do granular monitoring and improves VM load."
"I like everything about this tool. I recommend this solution to anyone looking for a standalone solution with high availability meaning that can be used depending on the customers requirements."
"Intelligent solution with a proactive monitoring feature and consolidated dashboard that's stable and easy to scale."
"The event management tool builds correlation logic and protection algorithms into a field of events that is valuable when a data center goes down."
"It works irrespective of the operating system we’re running."
"The most valuable features of BMC TrueSight Operations Management are the blackouts and event management."
"The ability to completely tailor and customize what it's monitoring is one of its strongest points. A lot of other monitoring tools are good at certain things, but one of my colleagues described it as the “Swiss Army Knife” of monitoring tools. It can do anything you want."
"I would say that it is an easy-to-use monitoring tool. Amongst the available monitoring tools, it is a really good option."
"One of the best aspects of Geneos is that it has a broad scope and can cover a lot of use cases. You can write your own scripts to monitor really specific things. And the rules that you can put in place can be quite complex for the alerts."
"The remarkable feature of Geneos is the dashboard. Geneos' flexible dashboard sets it apart from other monitoring tools. Other solutions have limitations in their dashboard design and can't be customized as much. The Geneos dashboard allows unlimited creativity."
"The solution's log monitoring and alerting mechanisms are very user-friendly and easy to plug and play."
"One of the most valuable features of ITRS Geneos is the active time feature that helps with the trading applications that I support."
"The flexibility of the product is most valuable. It is highly customizable. If you put your mind to it and think of something you could do, there's a good possibility you can get it integrated within the console, if it's not readily available. The simplicity or ease of customization has been valuable."
"The great advantage of this tool is real-time monitoring."
"Application performance management (APM) is an area with certain shortcomings in the solution that needs improvement. I"
"The pricing could be better."
"The graphs are extremely limited. We don't have a lot of dashboard options. To make reports and dashboards more useful, we usually need to integrate some dashboard solutions."
"In our company, we faced some issues with the solution’s application endpoint, IP, and the physical location of the transactions."
"BMC TrueSight Operations Management could improve the reporting."
"The UI for the end users could be improved and more flexible than it is now."
"The solution could improve its price."
"This solution is lacking in application monitoring features. Technical support for this solution also needs improvement, particularly in product knowledge and response time."
"For the solution to stay relevant in the cloud-based monitoring environment Geneos needs more plug-ins with more features. Instead of offering clients workarounds, the solution should have a cloud-based out-of-the-box version."
"ITRS have started to make some major changes that we haven't taken on board yet, in the creation of dashboards and more visibility of the metrics that we collect. At the moment, that's something that's lacking, but I know they have addressed it. Still, it’s not that easy to create stuff to help with visibility and dashboarding in Geneos."
"Their cloud monitoring solution needs to be improved. I have already given them the feedback that it's not capable of meeting the latest technology needs."
"There is one drawback to using lightweight data collection: we lack the feature of observability based on time series, such as historical model data. This makes it difficult to view data in ITRS. ITRS needs to improve this feature."
"I would like ITRS Geneos to develop an app, where instead of going to specific login terminals or logging into laptops or desktops to check alerts, we can have visibility in the app itself."
"Geneos' application monitoring could be improved a lot. Products like AppDynamics and Dynatrace provide the process thread-level monitoring, but Geneos lacks these capabilities."
"ITRS Geneos is not on the cloud at a time when everyone is moving to the cloud."
"ITRS Geneos cloud monitoring is very weak and can use improvement."

Reviews from Real Users
Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by BMC TrueSight Operations Management users.
Mudassir A., Sr. Technical Consultant at a tech services company, says, "The event management part of TrueSight Operations Management, in my experience, is probably the best in the market. You have endless flexibility. You can build your own rules, you have the MRL language, and you can implement any kind of logic on the alerts. It may be correlation, abstraction, or executing something as a result of the alerts. You have almost the whole range of options available for event management using the available customization."
A General Manager - Sales at a tech services company explains, “There are many features that are most valuable in BMC TrueSight Operations Management. First, its proactive monitoring feature is highly developed. BMC TrueSight Operations Management is an intelligent tool that's able to understand day-to-day operations and consistently gives alerts. The alerts are not automatic for some activities, e.g. some alerts are given monthly, while some are given more frequently. The consolidated dashboard where you can enjoy a single pane of glass to look at the full infrastructure from the servers to the VMs, to the clouds, to the application, to the database, to the network devices, including having a topology, and having a tendency map of the topology of key offerings, is also a valuable feature of this solution.”
An Information Systems Computer System Controller at an insurance company states, “The business event manager tool that consolidates detailed information from a single instance of equipment is the most valuable thing for me. It provides support for the business tools and the IT services which come from several systems.”
