HP BTO (formerly OpenView) Discontinued

HP Openview really helped us when we migrated our old SAP Data from IBM Platform to OpenText.

Watchman Monitoring

If you are in IT consulting or manage any fleet of computers, both Mac and PC (and yes Linux) - you should have this installed. It will be able to provide you the information needed to repair computers and avoid productivity loss by users.

Cons

HP BTO (formerly OpenView) Discontinued

  • Monitoring interface should be more user friendly.
Deep Sengar | TrustRadius Reviewer

Watchman Monitoring

  • Would like to see non-computer deployment agent - such as Synology.
  • Since it's mainly reporting, this isn't necessary improvement, but it would be good if it can receive data - so in case we can't ping a machine, maybe use Watchman as a backdoor - but that would go against it's main principles.

Return on Investment

HP BTO (formerly OpenView) Discontinued

  • Biggest support in maintaining 10,000 Linux servers.
Deep Sengar | TrustRadius Reviewer

Watchman Monitoring

  • I've been using it since the day it came out - there have so many times where a machine has had an error reported by Watchman that we've been able to save the client before something terrible happened.
  • The ROI is there - you can easily resell this product to your clients, or wrap it into your product offering.
