Q&A Highlights
Question: What Is The Biggest Difference Between CA UIM and Manage Engine?
Answer: UIM is a very old, expensive, conglomeration of tools all written by different companies. ManageEngine has moderate capabilities but largely developed for smaller companies. If you read their reviews there is a great deal of angst with their support and implementation services. Also, they are all separate products built to be standalone so there is not the integration you would find in a true AIOps platform. They are also far more expensive than our offering.

Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"One of the things that I like about DX Infrastructure is that the topology is good enough to see what is happening in the infrastructure. You also get alerts if something is happening in the network. There are many features and benefits. It is serving our customers in knowing exactly how their network is performing in terms of reliability. It also helps them in planning the capacity. They know how much bandwidth the branches are consuming."

"Some of the most valuable features are the accessibility of the solution and the fact that it is simpler than other products. For example, discovering devices in the network is very simple, making it user-friendly.""Monitoring is the most valuable feature of this solution.""It is easy to use and deploy.""Some of the useful features are NetFlow and analytics.""We have found the solution to be stable.""The most valuable feature of ManageEngine OpManager makes it easy to monitor all the network alerts on the application.""I liked Network Configuration Manager. They had some pretty decent features there, and they also had pretty good monitoring and alerts."

Cons
"The only challenge that I have with this solution is the reporting part. The users are not really comfortable with the kind of reports they are getting. Sometimes, they want to see reports in their own format. Customizing those reports with Jasper is not very easy. It could be because of the knowledge gap. If you have the knowledge of how Jasper can be configured to suit customer requirements in terms of reporting, it is good. There was a time a customer complained about one issue related to Netflow analysis. Broadcom has a separate model for that, but the customer wanted everything bundled together. It could also have IP management so that I am able to see or analyze IPs so that the IPs that are already in use don't get assigned."

"We have been facing an issue since last year when a lot of our users started to work from home through their mobiles or computers. We are having trouble reaching these devices. We are now planning to publish our instance to the cloud so that we can reach these devices. Its performance should be improved in terms of the discovery of the devices. I would like to feel confident with the discovery that this solution does. For example, on my dashboard, I would like to be able to view a list of all devices seen on a specific server. At present, it is difficult to find such information. This would be an excellent feature to have.""The only problem with it is that the setup isn't very intuitive. I know that they just upgraded the product to make it a little bit easier to use, but compared to some of the other platforms, it is not easy to configure it, set it up, and get it running. However, once you have set it up and got it running, it runs great.""ManageEngine OpManager can improve by having better updates for critical issues.""We would like link monitoring included. At times we need to monitor those specific links closely.""There needs to be improvements to make the solution capable of supporting more devices, and it would be good to see an option for automatic deployment.""There are certain things that are not possible to do with Op Manager. It's a solution that still needs time to develop.""I would like to see more enhancements made to the product."
