Pros
"It's very easy to use.""The solution has very good integration capabilities.""It's very easy to use.""Tivoli NetCool allows us to grasp a lot of data that can be applied toward predictive analytics and auto-remediation.""Support is one of the best aspects of this solution. NetCool is a good product that has good flexibility. There are a lot of documents available online which is one of the best features of IBM Tivoli Suite. Whenever an issue happens, rather than going to technical support, if you find the exact issue in Google, you can get tech notes for that particular issue."

Cons
"The installation could be simplified, and technical support could be faster.""The solution is too expensive.""Tivoli NetCool's has medium scalability - there are some problems with its replications not being mature.""In terms of improvement, I would like to see more AIOps, Artificial Intelligent Operations in the next release. IBM develops new features for Power BI or Cognos Analytics, which is good. As of now, we use Cognos Analytics, we are not using Power BI. They have the Insight concept but we don't like that.""The installation could be simplified, and technical support could be faster."
