We are using Cisco DNA Analytics and Assurance across the business, including all our remote sites. This tool helps us solve the business problem of not knowing or having insight into our overall network from the very top-level view. This gives us much better knowledge of exactly what's happening all over the network.
- Easy-to-use interface
- Gives broad, top-level details of the network
- Allows you to easily drill down to exactly the problem
- Initial setup and config can be quite a project
- Pricing is up there with other premium network monitoring products
- Since it's fairly new, support (at least first-level)--don't have a huge grasp of it yet

I would easily recommend Cisco DNA Analytics and Assurance to a colleague if asked. I would, however, make sure they are utilizing primarily Cisco-brand products in their network as the third-party support is not nearly as deep. You still get into from third-party links but not the detailed info you get from Cisco products.

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.
