Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable features are the rich reports, high performance, and the look and feel of the WebEx webpage are very good.""Intelligent solution with a proactive monitoring feature and consolidated dashboard that's stable and easy to scale.""The solution has a very good business event manager tool.""BMC TrueSight Operations Management is easily scalable.""I like the deep-dive detail and end-user metrics data. The synthetic monitor is the best one. The best point of the new one is that there's no need for configuration. You can inject the Java script and start to change major developments in the application. This is a good approach, and we received all the data using this.""It is a stable solution.""Helix Innovation Studio is a very good feature. It allows us to develop our own enterprise applications and make them available for the customers.""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."

"The data analysis part is good in Splunk, which is something that I like the most. It is also quite easy to use. Its dashboards, visualizations, and analytics are good.""Its integration is most valuable. Its UI is also pretty much easy.""We can easily configure things as required in relation to our use cases.""The Splunk user community and forum are most valuable.""The initial setup isn't overly complex.""It has quite extensive support in terms of integration. If you want to do anything, there are tools for that.""The SIEM is the most valuable feature of the product.""Splunk is stable, and this is why many customers want it."

Cons
"The UI for the end users could be improved and more flexible than it is now.""The solution is overly complex.""It would be better if the initial setup and deployment were more straightforward.""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.""The pricing could be better.""This solution is lacking in application monitoring features. Technical support for this solution also needs improvement, particularly in product knowledge and response time.""I would like them to improve the deep-dive details, tracing, and data agents in this product. We have EUEM, an end-user experience monitoring appliance. This one's quicker than the current one, and reporting side and filtration side are very bad. There are many details we look at and explain what we receive information in the current one, but we cannot have historical data like we do with EUEM. We cannot have a powerful point to look for specific traffic from a specific application and a specific browser. We don't have it in the new one. The current BMC also needs to add the thing that control versions.""There are some small limitations with this tool in terms of reporting dashboards that fit all of the requirements of the individual customer."

More BMC TrueSight Operations Management Cons →

"The configuration could be better.""The solution has a high learning curve for users. It's a little complicated when you're trying to figure out all the features and what they do.""Being a SIEM solution with a centralized dashboard, we would like to have more options to customize it.""The UI can be improved. Dashboards and reports can be better in terms of graphics.""Its pricing model and integration with third-party services can be improved. We had faced an issue with integration. The alerting feature is currently not available with Splunk, but it is definitely available with Datadog and PagerDuty. They should include this feature. A few dashboards in Splunk look quite old and are not that modern. They aren't bad, but improving these dashboards will definitely make Splunk more attractive and usable. I read in a few blog posts that there were a few security incidents related to Splunk agents. So, it can be made more secure.""Its search or filtering capability is nice, but it can be improved. It is currently a bit complicated, and it should be simplified. If we can write the search filter in a more simplified way, it would be better.""This is not really a monitoring solution.""I haven't found a way for me to create my own plugins and integrate them into Splunk, but this isn't necessarily a limitation; it could simply be a lack of knowledge on my part."

    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.”


    Splunk software has been around since 2006 and the company has since grown to become an industry leader. Splunk's vision is to make machine data accessible, usable and valuable to everybody.
