Cons
"The solution is too expensive.""The installation could be simplified, and technical support could be faster.""The installation could be simplified, and technical support could be faster.""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."
