Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It's stable enough. I haven't noticed any problems since it was installed."

"OPS/REXX is valuable because it allows us almost unlimited flexibility in automating our system.""It reduces the number of repetitive motions required by a human to respond to the system.""It alerts the operators when it is time to repair the communications and the IPLs.""​The service has been wonderful. I like the people that I have had to deal with. The process is very straightforward. I call or use the website.""​The follow-up surprised me. Making sure that I am happy with what I have gone to them on. They will call after I have made changes and verify that I am happy with the changes that I did have to make. If it did not fix the complete problem, they go back over it until I am satisfied.​""​It is an easy product to use and it is stable.""It's a very stable product. I very much like the SSM stuff in it. The rules engine, it's awesome.""Once automatic IPL has been defined, anyone can perform an IPL with very little intervention. We know that all of the components will be started correctly."

Cons
"We can't see the percentages to see the percentages of the CPU utilized. We should be able to see how much was used by our part of the system. Now, we have to continuously recalculate that information."

More IBM Tivoli OMEGAMON Cons →

"Performing a stop/restart of OPS/MVS could be a little smoother. Without special coding, some undesired tasks will be started and some necessary tasks will be stopped if we have to bounce OPS/MVS during the day.""The reason sometimes it is not stable, we do not have the expertise to write the script.​""The interfaces to USS, CA UIM could be better. CA Common Services interfaces - namely Zdata Mover, Zmessage Service, Zdatacolletcor - are poorly documented.""The GUI interface could be improved, but that is coming. They are working on that.""Scalability is zero. It cannot be scaled because of its age.""​It’s a complex product. The initial installation is easy, but implementing various functions is a constant process.​""One thing that comes to mind is the MQ interface. The last time we tried to use it, it seemed a little clunky.""It definitely needs more web-based interface, to be more mobile-open. More APIs, more open source to it."
