    Although Cisco Prime [LAN Management Solution] is a nice tool and no other 4rd party tools can match its native monitoring and managing capabilities still i have given less rating and that's because it is only for Cisco vendor Devices. Hence if you have only Cisco infrastructure then go for it or else look for another 4rd party tool in conjunction with Cisco prime.

    Organizations are more wanting to have a Hybrid model, few organizations are moving to a 100% Cloud model. Doing so, Infrastructure monitoring i.e. ensuring Performance and Availability is catering to Internal/External client SLA is the utmost priority. OpManager captures Performance and Availability regardless of Hybrid and/or Cloud.

    Pros

    Cisco

    • Wireless file detection and planning mode has helped us expand into new areas of our buildings.
    • Alerting is detailed when we have issues with hardwired and wireless devices, and Rogue Access Points are easily identifiable.
    • Cisco equipment information is much more detailed than other management products' SNMP queries and is an excellent tool for troubleshooting end-device connectivity issues.
    • Our KPI reporting for senior management and centralized management of our WIPS 'Wireless Intrusion Prevention' setup have both benefited significantly from the detailed reporting capabilities.

    Cons

    Cisco

    • Maps. One thing that I miss is the fact that you can't see both wired and wireless equipment in the same topology map. For visualization and troubleshooting purposes, that would help a lot, and I honestly don' t think it's that much harder to implement.
    • I'd love to see an option to show 'live dashboards,' maps, or other visual tools to publish in a NOC room, or even just to broadcast in a big monitor to allow multiple workmates to check that information. Again, I don't think that would be too hard to implement. I remember a similar feature was available in the first versions of the product, way back in the 90's (yes, I'm that old :-) )
    • Sometimes, depending on what screen you are, the solution can be a little slow. I'm not saying the whole system is slow, but sometimes that slowness can bother a little.
    • Talking about areas for improvement, one area I think can be improved is the upgrade process. Even for not so large deployments, it can take a lot of time. Having this time decreased would be the right thing to do.

    • Improve the reporting module, which allows for a better cross-checking of information
    • Greater flexibility when building dashboards
    • Improve the scope of the NFA add ons, since it is integrated into the Opmanager and provides fewer options than the one installed independently

      At first, we were not able to add our Avaya switches to the configuration backup module, our partner tried to help, but they did not find the solution, we had one remote session with tech support of ME and they solve the problem.

      Alternatives Considered

      Cisco

      There are various 3rd party tools available in the market which not only supports monitoring of cisco devices but also supports non-cisco devices, even with these capabilities in these 3rd party tools Cisco Prime has maintained a uniqueness in its products being the native tool from Cisco. The uniqueness is about product supportability for given devices and some of the edge features such as configuration management, detailed heatmaps etc

      Return on Investment

      Cisco

      • It has helped us with our quarterly wireless security testing by pinpointing the location of non-approved access points vs. hunting for them via signal strength.
      • Saves time by helping to identify network health issues before they become a definitive problem causing downtime.
      • With errors detected early, we have noticed our wi-fi network is much more stable thus freeing up our engineer's time elsewhere.

      • If you provide OpManager with the device credentials, it will take care of the rest. This lessens involvement in setup and decreases time to turn up.
      • OpManager is a tool that keeps you informed at any time of the day or night about the status of any device included in the library.
      • OpManager is scalable and fits perfectly to any small business or large enterprise.
