"ManageEngine OpManager could improve the default dashboards that are available. We are not able to customize them easily and they do not give us the information we need unless we customize them. You need to have the technical knowledge to be able to do it, the customization should be easier.""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.""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.""ManageEngine OpManager can improve by having better updates for critical issues.""There are certain things that are not possible to do with Op Manager. It's a solution that still needs time to develop.""We had some stability issues at the outset that have since been resolved.""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.""The dashboard could include more features."

More ManageEngine OpManager Cons →

"Initial setup was complex.""NETSCOUT nGeniusONE can improve the detection of what area of the infrastructure could be having an issue, such as an application, server, or network. It needs to find evidence of a fault.""The solution could do more for security. It should offer more security-related features.""The initial deployment is tedious and requires a lot of build, deployment and configuration time. Experience is key to a successful deployment.""here is a big issue with the special way they use InfiniStream to store data."
