We can plan changes and replacement of end-of-life products in our environment very well because it's very accurate.

I can use it to detect whenever things go wrong on my network.

The Global Collections are what I found to be most valuable. With the Global Collections, you're able to organize and categorize devices into "folders," or functional groups and categories, so that it doesn't matter which SpectroSERVER those devices are on.

​The stability of the product is key. It never breaks, really. The stability and reliability of the Spectrum product have been top-notch.​

We were able to standardize the internal processes across all internal departments, resulting in almost an elimination of non-standard process flows through our organization.

The monitoring just comes to us: "Oh, there's something wrong with that machine." It tells us. There are some 50,000 machines or so, all doing different things. And if they go down we hear about it.

The containerization of different objects was very helpful in building an org structure. Being able to separately manage your MSP clients with separate visibility was also helpful.

It creates transparency and makes everything work by being more transparent.

Our consultant was four months on-site doing Spectrum setup and working through issues.

It doesn't really allow for multi-tenancy. If you're an ISP or an MSP and you want to use this tool to provide these types of fault management services to your customers, you would need a separate SpectroSERVER for each customer...

It doesn’t give you performance metrics: You need CA eHealth for this.

Needs better integration with all the other products in the Agile suite of tools; anything they could do to make that less complex, would be great.

We want to make our own choice for the AIOps solution and do not want to be forced to use the Broadcom OI solution by default.

If they could interact with the MIBs of vendors better, and have a lot more pre-loaded ones, that would be amazing for us right now.

For my use case, incident coordination was an area of improvement. The internal software engine for coordinating outages could use improvement because sometimes, we used to get false alerts for unrelated devices. They did a really good job of trying to make sure that you got one major alert and any of the subsequent devices downstream were just additions to that, but occasionally, the engine wouldn't properly catch the right things, and we used to get a flood of alerts.

I would like to see CA move Spectrum, Performance Manager, and some of their other tools moved to a SaaS based model. You see a lot of other manufacturers which are moving toward SaaS based models.
