Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Great out-of-the-box capability.""One of the things that I like about DX Infrastructure is that the topology is good enough to see what is happening in the infrastructure. You also get alerts if something is happening in the network. There are many features and benefits. It is serving our customers in knowing exactly how their network is performing in terms of reliability. It also helps them in planning the capacity. They know how much bandwidth the branches are consuming."

More DX Infrastructure Manager Pros »

"The most valuable features are Remote Connect, SUP, Cloud functionality, Report, Query, and third-party patching.""The most valuable features are application deployment and task-sequenced imaging.""Patching is the main feature because SCCM is made to control the entire environment without manually interpreting. So it is good to use for patching.""Microsoft is being very competitive right now, and they are really investing in a lot of new features to be more competitive in the marketplace.""The initial setup is straightforward and not too complicated.""The product is useful for patch management.""The most valuable feature is the scalability.""This solution captures all the devices in our infrastructure."

Cons
"The company has not kept pace with developments.""The only challenge that I have with this solution is the reporting part. The users are not really comfortable with the kind of reports they are getting. Sometimes, they want to see reports in their own format. Customizing those reports with Jasper is not very easy. It could be because of the knowledge gap. If you have the knowledge of how Jasper can be configured to suit customer requirements in terms of reporting, it is good. There was a time a customer complained about one issue related to Netflow analysis. Broadcom has a separate model for that, but the customer wanted everything bundled together. It could also have IP management so that I am able to see or analyze IPs so that the IPs that are already in use don't get assigned."

More DX Infrastructure Manager Cons »

"The cost of the product can be improved.""The operations could be faster and you need some patience with this tool.""The main room for improvement is the on-screen display. I think it would be good if some improvements were made.""We'd like the solution to make it easier to manage remote users.""With Microsoft Premier Support, you get what you pay for. There's Third Tier Support that you pay for. If you pay for that, you get excellent support, and if you don't pay for that, then you get the less experienced staff.""Microsoft should extend support for additional platforms.""The deployment process is lengthy and should be quicker to complete.""Could do with some cosmetic improvements on the user interface."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"CAD $400,000 annually.""Customers pay for the license and the support."

More DX Infrastructure Manager Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Pricing is negotiable with Microsoft, depending upon which of their packages you choose.""When you compare this solution with other tools in the market you might actually find a lot of variation in the pricing and that's why people opt for the other tools rather than Microsoft tools.""Its price is okay because it is part of our licensing.""Presently, I am using a free trial version.""We have to pay for a license.""The price model is different for every client.""For enterprises, there is an annual license required to use this solution. The price of the solution could be cheaper. However, this is mostly because of the exchange rate from the dollar to the Nigerian currency."
