A stable and clever solution, but it is very complex and it needs a lot of improvements
Pros and Cons
  • "It is stable and scalable."
  • "There are a lot of things that need improvement. Software recognition, software licensing, software compliance, data inputs, reporting, and support are some of the areas."

What is our primary use case?

It's for full-on asset management. You can do hardware and software recognition.

What is most valuable?

It is stable and scalable.

What needs improvement?

There are a lot of things that need improvement. Software recognition, software licensing, software compliance, data inputs, reporting, and support are some of the areas.

It needs a discovery tool of its own. You have to get that from other Micro Focus products, which means you have to pay more to get those products.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have about 20 years of experience working with Micro Focus Asset Manager. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable.

How are customer service and support?

There are issues with their support, and their support could be better.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have been using FlexNet Manager for the last two years. I would recommend FlexNet every single time. While Micro Focus is a clever tool and can become cleverer, it has no source of data of its own. It has to be fed by other data sources.

I'm also using Snow License Manager at this time. I have used it in my current role for 15 months, and I have also used it for about 15 months in a previous role.

How was the initial setup?

Its setup is complex.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

From my experience, Asset Manager is expensive.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise thinking hard about it because it's a very complex tool. It takes a lot of work to keep it, and there are a lot of other elements that have to work with it. It is a very hands-on tool.

I would rate it a six out of 10.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
