ABB Ability Solution Suite

Of course this is the one of the best solution available in the market at present. When you have Multiple system in a plant then you need a powerful tool for Computation which Ability does it smoothly.

Enterprise monitoring is a must.We have a map of our district on our Orion, it shows all 90 buildings. Green dot means good, yellow dot means partial issue, red dot means critical or down.This simple presentation and all the automatic data collection are done behind the scene. Orion pulls data and creates a nice presentation front end for people like me to understand the health of our network. It is powerful and you must configure it right to explore its potential on [how] it can help you daily.

Pros

Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

ORION Enterprise

  • Hardware monitoring is the main reason we bought the product, and we use it to monitor over 4,000 servers.
  • It also great for network monitoring, although we use other products for this function also. This is mostly because we are a big, siloed organization and is less to do with any issues with the functionality provided.
  • Application monitoring is also a capability of Orion. We have experimented with its function, but we have not rolled it out full-scale.

Cons

ABB Ability Solution Suite

  • May be for smaller PLCs this can't be implemented.
  • Cost may an area ABB can look in to.
  • Improvement in GUI

  • Pre-packaged monitoring items with other manufacturers.
  • Lower the cost.

One of the best solutions in the market with a user-friendly system. This is very useful when the ABB system (Like we had 800xA) is there, new or existing; all the ABB systems can be integrated using this rather than going to a 3rd party vendor, which may have interface problems.

Good support in terms of quality and promptness. When we had problems with some of the commands not getting executed, their online support also provided a good solution to solve the problem. Even mission-critical task we were able to solve during this Pandemic time. The suggestion is to go for the online support 1st in the future, followed by a visit.

That I don’t know. We do not need to call their tech support much. Therefore, I can’t tell you it is good or bad. At least I have not heard any bad reviews. The product is pretty well developed and designed, so it should work well after a right installer installs it.

ABB Ability Solution Suite

Better suited for the ABB System as Microsoft is a third party for ABB Control System.

ORION Enterprise

We use Orion for a very specific use case and do not leverage all the available functions of the tools. I do think the product is very capable and the different modules are very powerful. We are a big company and we already had several systems in place that provide the same functions. We use Orion specifically for monitoring our devices and network.

  • We have gained tremendous value from Orion enterprises device data and monitoring. It allows us to see what devices in our network are having problems or need attention.
  • The alerting engine in Orion is very powerful and can be configured to meet the needs of the customer.
  • Networking mapping and monitoring is also very powerful and provides real-time information about network up and downtime.
