Cisco SD-Access

If the use case [is] to have the automation and network insight in your network, Cisco SD-Access is a good solution to go ahead with. The only concern is the stability of the codes and the bugs/vulnerabilities. The other thing [is] as it is a new technology [you] would need more focus on the adoption program from Cisco.

OpenNMS

I would recommend all system administrators use some form of network monitoring if they are not already doing so, and I'd definitely recommend people consider OpenNMS if they're shopping around. Small businesses will benefit from the low-cost of entry (it's free!), whilst getting all the enterprise features. Larger businesses can benefit from paid support plans.
However, there's no getting around the fact that you will require some advanced networking and sysadmin knowledge to get the most out of OpenNMS, or at least, be prepared for a steep learning curve. If you don't have the resources to devote this time initially, you may struggle.

OpenNMS

  • We've had a few issues with delayed alerting.
  • I haven't quite figured out how to make topologies work yet, but I haven't spent a ton of time on it either.
  • We've also had a bit of trouble importing some MIBs, but that usually boiled down to working with the vendor to make sure we had the right MIBs and dependencies.

Cisco SD-Access 9.2
Based on 3 answers
I would say it is excellent support on Cisco SD-Access from the Cisco Sales for all initial conversations which includes technical presentation demos, Cisco TAC for helping on day-to-day issues and troubleshooting, and [the] Cisco CX team for the smooth deployment of the product and the solution. We are happy overall [with] deploying Cisco SD-Access in our environment.

Cisco SD-Access

Basically, we have various devices and solutions from Cisco and we are more focused on the next generation networks with the best support. We knew that Cisco has the best team sitting to support [any] issues and help us to troubleshoot whenever we need it. So we go with Cisco for this solution.

OpenNMS

OpenNMS's more attractive GUI and its price break were the main reasons our company chose to explore and use this product. However, it never managed to actually replace Nagios which had a much more established hold within the company. Perhaps we were over-monitoring, but our company claimed a $100k loss per hour of downtime.

Return on Investment

Cisco SD-Access

  • Positive: When we talk about the overall ROI on investing in Cisco Software-Defined Access. A big yes, off-course it drastically reduces the daily basis IT operations and meantime we were able to focus on other important assignments

OpenNMS

  • Initial adoption required quite a lot of resources and time to get everything right. Totally worth it for us; just be prepared for a gradual process that will get better and better with time.
  • Once setup and running smoothly, it provides us with all the reporting we could hope for, at near zero cost.
  • With OpenNMS, we're able to offer a much more reliable service to our customers, and spend a lot less time dealing with issues.
