"The solution could improve by being more secure.""Its whole architecture is a bit traditional. They can change the architecture to make it more modern and multi-tenant. Currently, we can do multi-tenancy, but we need to buy another product. Its look and feel can be improved. They can also put in more effort into building the THWACK community and use the information about various customer issues and requests to build the new releases.""It would be great if they include a network service manager, network performance manager, or a privileged assessment in the next release.""The Network Configuration Manager needs to improve the access control list compliance.""For each device, when you open the network performance monitor, it will give you all of the information about the device, but many of the natural configuration management features are not on that page."
