Cisco DNA Analytics and Assurance

So not everyone is in need of a smart AI checking their network metrics looking for issues before they happen or finding and alerting on problems that the network staff may not have noticed, but if you have the budget for it, it could be a huge time saver for your whole department.

N-able RMM (formerly Solarwinds RMM)

It works extremely well when trying to perform basic monitoring on a large number of endpoints and you also wish to perform some management tasks all from a single location. It isn't great at anything network related. A lot more data needs to be exportable, especially in the form of CSVs.

Pros

Cisco DNA Analytics and Assurance

  • Easy-to-use interface
  • Gives broad, top-level details of the network
  • Allows you to easily drill down to exactly the problem

N-able RMM (formerly Solarwinds RMM)

  • Thanks to RMM I never feel like I'm unaware as to what's going on in my network. I can be in the office or half a country away and feel completely aware of what's going on.
  • We've had numerous situations over the years where a part of our network is having issues (latency or errors) that the RMM alerts have saved us from a major outage. You can't ask for better proactive alerting.
  • The advanced alerting allows us to stay ahead of issues instead of reacting to them. This gives us confidence in our network and our end users better support.

Cons

Cisco DNA Analytics and Assurance

  • May require an implementer to get this set up and running.
  • For a software based service that you can run on your own VM's, price is still very high.
  • The first setup can be a bear and you will need much help from TAC.

  • UI speed and threading across multiple windows (1 window refreshing, causes all refreshes to hang).
  • Load times in certain menus, regardless of server specs.
  • Integration with 3rd party applications.
  • Speed of dev team response in regards to existing features malfunctioning, or major bugs that Solarwinds does not consider major.

The Support team is usually quick to resolve but has many times been very delayed (months) in finding a resolution, unfortunately.

SolarWinds definitely is the the most ready out of the box as far as getting is up and running and you can start using it where other system go from need ing a little setup like importing MIBS to completely needing to configure the system. As far a performance once things are up and working I feel they all do a good job at basic monitoring and management. The difference is that SolarWinds does a good job at having things templated but allows you to customize some attributes. If you are want to make major customization for alerts and monitoring and other things SolarWinds is not the best option. But, then again, you will not need a team just to manage the system.

Return on Investment

Cisco DNA Analytics and Assurance

  • Admins have saved time diagnosing issues
  • IT is able to get ahead of problems before they occur
  • Money saved on separate monitoring products that may not work as well
Douglas Demartino | TrustRadius Reviewer

N-able RMM (formerly Solarwinds RMM)

  • Moving break/fix clients to support subscriptions using RMM has increased the sale value of my business, as there are real ongoing revenues to show to a potential buyer, rather than simply goodwill and client lists.
  • I am better able to support a larger number of clients with the same staffing levels due to pre-emptive work, more remote support, and simpler applications of solutions.
