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 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.
Scalability is a highly rated feature of this solution. It is better than some of the other tools that I've used in terms of scalability. We scaled it to tens of thousands of devices.
The granular access control that it provided so that you could only see devices that were related to what you were working on was great. I couldn't see the entire inventory of devices. I could only see the ones that were related to my work. It has got a very granular access control component.

The most valuable feature is the ability to put health checks in place not only for the infrastructure but for some of the services that are on top of the infrastructure.

The most valuable feature is the auto-discovery, which is nice because you don't have to do anything to add a new component.

IT Architect at a comms service provider with 10,001+ employees
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.

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.
Its visualization can be improved. It doesn't have a very advanced GUI. It is very basic and simple, but it does work.

There should be a facility to integrate with other monitoring applications that are currently running in the environment.

Integration with some other tools, and integration with some Network Packet Broker, need some improvement.

It's not a great performance management tool. Its reporting capabilities are not very good at all.

For us, the implementation was quite complex but it's because of the large number of different environments we're dealing with.

If the integration is simplified or improved, it will be a unique selling point in comparison to the competition on the market.
