    SQL Server [Business Intelligence] Manager is useful for tracking performance across SSIS, SSRS and SSA and have the data represented in dashboards. It helps improve performance and helps end users. However, several features are redundant for smaller organization that can use the tools that comes with existing Microsoft products. These features also takes time to learn and use.

    VictorOps is an excellent option for platform alerting and is very cost-effective. For teams of any size, it can be the correct tool. VictorOps success is mainly dependent on the amount of logging and monitoring setup within your platform. If you have little or poor logging, then they may not be anything for VictorOps to act upon.

        I am going to give this an 8 because I actually haven't had to reach out to customer support. I am using an 8 because the app itself is clear on how to use it so they have done a fine job on allowing me to find answers without having to reach out to support.

        SQL Server Business Intelligence Manager does what SQL Server Management Studio should already do natively. So it actually fills up important gaps Microsoft left in its product.

        Both VictorOps and PagerDuty do a great job at hands-off alerting people of all their systems neeeds. If used properly it allows everyone, devs, ops, and managers to see into the status of the systems and see what systems and processes need to be improved based upon the types and frequencies of alerts one is getting.
