Likelihood to Recommend

Cisco DNA Software

It is suited if you want to automate the output. It delivers intelligence and security and switching to the software is easy in terms of transition. However, it requires a tour to start using the software for first-timers as it is not that user friendly. The new innovations in the software are focusing on the interface also.

[Micro Focus Network Node Manager i (formerly HP Network Node Manager)] is like you implement it, setup monitoring and alerting and forget it forever until any major activity is there and that is possible because of the product's stability. Another reason for product stability is less features as compared to other vendor tools and its own inbuilt database.

Because of the dependency on different software, it becomes difficult to use a single one of the CISCO products. One has to purchase the license of more than one product to get the desired output. It is not user-friendly for first-time users and thus a tour is required to make oneself comfortable with the product.

Support Rating

Cisco DNA Software 9.1
Based on 3 answers
While this program has been on the market for a while now and some updates would be a welcomed addition, I have to say that the program as it is now and the support given to our team has been great. It is easy to see that time was taken when building this software to anticipate issues and problems that people would run into. We don't have to reach out to support often, but when we do it's always a good experience.

Support is long and arduous and often are unable to help resolve the issue. We often have to do escalations or duty manager to get things moved. Even with a technical account manager, we do not see much improvement from a support point of view. This is an area where Micro Focus has a lot of improvement to do.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco DNA Software

We compared Cisco DNA Software with some of its competitors and, in the end, we chose Cisco DNA Software because of its features and customer support, also because of Cisco. The other solutions can be great also, but we choose Cisco DNA Software for our purposes.

Even though there are many products in the market such as from Solarwinds, CA Spectrum (no DX Spectrum), PRTG that offers similar or even with more flexibility the fault and performance monitoring still Micro Focus is a very nice tool when it comes to Scalability and Stability with all necessary monitoring coverage. There is no external database required and hence less issues with integration.

  • HP NNM is very good at producing root cause analysis. MTTR is reduced with NNM.
