We were one of the first adopters of DNAC. We use the platform to manage our floor switch environment. We use the product to provide a health status of our infrastructure, OS levels and switch upgrades where we have DNAC push the configs. We use Assurance to troubleshoot problems and forecast on potential issues.
  • Push configs to new floors or during switch upgrades
  • Assurance to troubleshoot issues
  • Inventory
  • Keep track of infrastructure OS levels
  • Early on the product was unstable. Since fixed.
  • The need to contact the BU when TAC cannot solve the issue. This happens all the time.
  • Upgrades to the product are not smooth and take a great deal of time.
The platform is well suited for small IT departments like ours. DNAC keeps track of things which frees up resources to do other things. It simplifies switch OS upgrades by pushing out the OS and config. There was a huge learning curse when we first implemented. So new users should expect that. And there still isn't any formal training on the product.
  • Assurance
  • Inventory
  • OS/config pushes during upgrades or switch replacements
  • The product has had a positive impact and ROI for our small team
  • It has negatively impacted our OPEX due to the licensing fees
We moved away from Solarwinds during the breach. Haven't touched them with a 10 foot pole since.We looked at Splunk but decided to stick with a Cisco product since we are a Cisco shop.

Our company purchased the Cisco DNA Analytics and Assurance as a means to see deeper into, and trends happening on the network. We were missing that AI component that could intelligently use machine learning to address performance and network issues with less attention required from the administrators of the network staff.
  • Smart AI that learns your network.
  • Machine learning that can find performance bottlenecks and issues.
  • After configuration you don't have to spend a lot of time managing it.
  • May require an implementer to get this set up and running.
  • For a software based service that you can run on your own VM's, price is still very high.
  • The first setup can be a bear and you will need much help from TAC.
So not everyone is in need of a smart AI checking their network metrics looking for issues before they happen or finding and alerting on problems that the network staff may not have noticed, but if you have the budget for it, it could be a huge time saver for your whole department.
  • Loads of time saved diagnosing network issues.
  • Much effort saved having to determine network performance metrics by hand.
  • The Cisco brand is generally safe and trusted so you get that additional peace of mind.
