I think it's great for giving any/all users the ability to deploy servers for whatever they want. It's also great for scaling up/down large quantities of servers. It also has some pretty good plugins and "orchestration actions" that you can write for yourself. I don't think it would be best suited if you want to set and forget it. It needs some TLC, and the interface and initial setup [are] not the most user-friendly. So if you're planning on using it for some complex tasks, make sure you have someone dedicated to it, at least for the initial setup. And make sure you have monitoring on it.

We previously had separate products to manage Azure and AWS, each with different capabilities, and it was very complex for our team to go back and forth and try to make sense of each environment. OpsCompass is very well suited to give you a single view of our entire cloud environment. OpsCompass also brings excellent compliance policies. We were not highly skilled with these policies, but the product made it easy to perform an assessment of our current state and identify areas where we had non-compliance issues. CIS policies were a great area to start and we later tried the Microsoft 365 policies, which were also helpful. More policies would be great to see.

Slack would be great, as an example. An imbedded tour or onboarding would help our new users, but overall, the product is pretty easy to figure out Read full review Alternatives Considered
We selected SovLabs Microsoft Active Directory because is one of the best automation tools for Active Directory. The tool offers a lot of features that we use. Good support from the vendor and a good community. I strongly recommend SovLabs Microsoft Active Directory for automation. The tools does a great job.

In this price range, we didn't find any other tools that provide this degree of cloud resource visibility. It's been an efficiency game-changer. I hope we'll see new modules as they expand their features to include active resource management policies. They've done such a good job of anticipating the needs of our CloudOps team, I plan to evaluate those new features (if/when they arrive).
Read full review Return on Investment We have invested countless man hours to troubleshooting and being support's QA. Most of our teams have saved an invaluable amount of time by being able to automate their deployments. After the initial time you spend [understanding] all the nuances, the configuring of groups, permissions, etc., does make administering it easier. Read full review Our team was able to do roughly 30% more with the product. The automation helps us spot issues without a lot of manual work We identified changes that would have had a massive cost impact--spinning up or forgetting about infrastructure we didn't need. OpsCompass prevents configuration drift and maintains a healthy state across multi-clouds. Read full review ScreenShots
