IBM Cloud Availability Monitoring (deprecated)

If you are using IBM Cloud and not using other monitoring tools, then IBM Cloud Availability Monitoring would be a decent solution to get started until you get a more advanced tool.

TrueSight Operations Management

If you have a large or complex environment then this tool can be the perfect fit. From many types of OS, database, applications and web sites supported out of the box and powerful customization ability, TrueSight can manage the most complex. If you have a simple or small IT shop then this tool suite may be over-kill and not worth the complexity to set up

TrueSight Operations Management

  • BMC has elected to not build in network monitoring which has always been a problem for us. They do have an excellent partner in Entuity for that but purchasing from a partner means separate contract talks.
  • They are merging in many old products into an every growing TrueSight tool but some tools have seen features dropped on the initial move and then we have to wait for future releases for the features to be added back in.

Alternatives Considered

IBM Cloud Availability Monitoring (deprecated)

IBM Cloud Availability Monitoring is a very basic monitoring tool. As the name suggests, it only monitors the availability of your systems. While it is a good tool to get started with, it lacks many advanced features available with other solutions such as New Relic, which you will need as you grow.

TrueSight Operations Management

We have done extensive comparisons between the products and some where quickly eliminated for lacking functionality or support for key technologies. The features that really pushed TrueSight to the top over other full suites from CA, ScienceLogic, SolarWinds, HP, Foglight and IBM was a mix of deal-breaking gaps for us in areas including support of iSeries, QoS reporting, integration options to other platforms and advanced analytics with event management
