Provides strong event correlation features, but its initial setup should be made easier
The solution's integrations are out of the box, and it is easy to integrate the tool with many technologies through its APIs. Moogsoft is always deployed on the cloud. Since it's a SaaS-based solution, it's cloud-delivered but also deploys to a hybrid or on-premises situation. The solution attaches itself to any environment size, but it's delivered via SaaS. The solution has room for improvement, but it's a pretty good technology. It does very well in delivering a big impact for businesses. Now, since it's owned by Dell and has the financial backing, it'll go from strength to strength. It's built by two very experienced co-founders who have used this type of technology before and were very much ahead of the curve. I'm still implementing the solution, and it is a platform that can deliver to something as big as HSBC. Overall, I rate the solution a seven out of ten.

Provides deep machine learning and great correlation between tools
This is an emerging tool and they have tried to consolidate everything not always with success. Automation, for example, needs to be improved to simplify the use of libraries for a gen operator. They're trying to do everything at once, and as a result, some areas are weak. In the next release, I'd like to see an improved dashboard because the current one is very basic. Reporting could also be improved to make it more customizable. It would be helpful for us to see executive reports more frequently, ideally on a weekly basis. Customization is the most important aspect, and it's applicable to both dashboards and reporting.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"Moogsoft's most valuable features are event management, correlation, and observability."
"The solution is extremely helpful with correlating IP failures and it has a very good sort of flow chart of IP systems. For example, if you see a failure in system A, you can track it down to the system causing the issue. This is a very handy feature."
"I like the prediction features."
"There are AI features in Moogsoft. Moogsoft has one wonderful feature that allows you to convert multiple alarms into situations. Generally, all other MoM tools get the alarms, and then convert it into an incident directly. There is one extra layer they have added before converting any alarm into an incident. Suppose there are multiple alarms that are somehow all related to a single source of issue. It converts all the alarms into a single situation, which then gets converted into an incident."
"The product currently seems to be a few steps ahead of the competition."
"Incident management is streamlined with Moogsoft. One standout feature is its unique situation-creation capability, differentiating it from other fault management tools. While other tools typically convert alarms directly into tickets or incidents, Moogsoft adds a middle layer where multiple alarms can be aggregated into one incident. Moogsoft's strong AI capabilities also allow it to correlate similar alarms automatically based on past experiences."
"Moogsoft is easily deployable and ready to use."
"The tool's event correlation and AI are its strongest parts."
"We find the products seamless integration with Zendesk to be extremely valuable to our business."
"The technical support is fantastic, and they are fast to respond."
"The feature that we have found most useful are the dashboards, which can be built in minutes using this solution, allowing multiple products, thresholds, or any given required metric to be seen in a single area."
"Predictive analysis is a valued feature."
"The most valuable features of OpsRamp include a single pane of glass, event correlation, personalized dashboards, and a single platform solution."
"The most valuable feature of this solution in my experience, is that the available reporting is quite accurate."
"It greatly assists small and medium-sized businesses in using the ITSM, alerting, and monitoring features."
"The feature we found most valuable in OpsRamp is alert generation because whenever there is any kind of spike on any virtual machine, the solution generates alerts based on the thresholds we implemented. We have integrated our ideas and tools with OpsRamp, so alerts are generated, then we notify the customers. That's the main feature we like about OpsRamp because we don't have to monitor each resource. Instead, OpsRamp does the monitoring for us, and it generates the alerts based on the thresholds."
 

Cons

"They are very much dependent on open-source technologies like RabbitMQ message bus. They are using open-source databases, Apache Tomcat, NGINX. If we face any issues with Apache Tomcat or the RabbitMQ message bus, then we do not get support from them. We have to troubleshoot it ourselves."
"Moogsoft is dependent on external products to do orchestration and SOP-based functionality."
"I would like to see how Moogsoft integrates with the multi-cloud and brings out a single pane of glass, to see everything on one screen."
"They should consider including Chatbot."
"The documentation and flexibility for generic integration could be improved."
"The solution's initial setup is complex, and it should be made easier."
"The tool needs to improve its support. It appears that the support responsiveness from Moogsoft is not aligned with the severity of the incident. Instead of proactively addressing issues, customers have to chase Moogsoft for resolution. In Moogsoft, unlike other tools like Splunk, the process follows a step-by-step sequence. You need to start each process in a specific order, typically following a sequence."
"I would like to see additional reports or information on the dashboard that includes metrics about CPU usage and memory."
"What's lacking in OpsRamp is process automation, and if there is, I wish there could be more of it, other than just spikes, or it would be better if the alerts can be generated based on different matrices. That option is absent in OpsRamp at the moment, and it would be valuable if that could be provided in the solution, especially if there's any kind of security issue in the VM."
"OpsRamp could improve the critical alerts. We have been receiving some false alerts when monitoring. For example, the alert shows the site is down, but when we try to do manual access to the URL, it's accessible."
"OpsRamp cannot be scaled for big and large company deployments."
"Automation is currently quite complex and needs to be improved."
"The function to search any particular device within this solution needs to be improved. Currently, the solution develops a lag when a search, or a comparison, is being carried out."
"The user interface of this product requires some changes as it is not inclusively user-friendly. For example, the performance indicators are color-based , which means that they are confusing for anyone who is color blind."
"An area of improvement would be application monitoring."
"I would like to see two things. The first is a self-service portal for the cloud, any cloud deployments, and the second is maturity validation towards ITSM, internalizing OpsRamp TSM. As a result, instead of integrating with more mature tools similar to ServiceNow, people will use OpsRamp."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The solution is very good from a business impact point of view, but it's quite expensive because it's an enterprise-grade solution."
"It's a very cost-effective and competitive product."
"When compared to other solutions, it is quite good."
"Moogsoft's licensing is consumption-based, so the price may increase depending on the environment."
"You pay it for a year and you'll have full access to the entire platform, not only for monitoring and alerting, you will have access to the entire platform, and whatever technology they develop will be made available to you."
"There is an annual licensing fee to use OpsRamp."
"I don't have any idea about the licensing cost for OpsRamp, but I just know that its pricing is based on the resource count for each tenant."
"OpsRamp is a cost-effective solution."
