I would definitely recommend vRealize Business for the right situations. I think it works well especially for customers who are already on the VMware platform. Just to moving over to the cloud on VMware is much more simple than changing the platform. Switching platforms is not really worth the migration that is involved. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Business for Cloud as an eight-out-of-ten. It would not be any higher because there are always improvements that can still be made to any product and, of course, I find the pricing to be an unresolved issue.

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to get as much information as possible from the vendor. It is important to understand it properly, in advance. If it is designed properly then you will get the best value because the scheme will be optimized. Overall, this is a good solution and we have not had any problems, but I can't say that it is perfect because of the issues with the documentation and knowledge base. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

We're just customers. We aren't sellers or partners. I'm not sure of which version of the solution we are currently using. I'd advise other companies if they decide to implement the solution, to make sure they are using the right sizes. It would be nice if they changed their pricing model, but I don't think that is going to happen. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. It's very good.

Except for the price, this product is excellent and I am content. Because of the pricing, I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

It's a very, very good solution and comparing it to others, it's definitely a solution that works. From our point of view, we are in a native VMware environment and that works fine for us. I would rate this product an eight out of 10. If it were an optimal solution and more simple to use, I would give it a 10, but it's not.

We are currently negotiating our VMware enterprise license agreement so it's unclear what the licensing costs will be.
