Cons

More Everbridge IT Alerting Cons →

"I'd say I am happy with the technical support, not elated. They provide great support, but sometimes they don't have the answers that I need.""There is improvement needed when importing from some types of data sources.""You do need a lot of training and certification with this product.""The solution could improve by increasing the performance. We have run into problems when large amounts of data are processed.""Over time I will have more requirements and I can foresee the solution could improve the search algorithm to run and output the data faster.""The solution could improve by giving more email details.""The complexity could be worked on so that it's even easier and faster.""Splunk needs to be able to hold more days of data. At the moment it only holds three months of data."
