It is currently used at the department level. It simplifies our operations while lowering costs and reducing risk. It delivers policy-based automation with SD-Access, monitoring, and Cisco DNA Assurance. One has to buy ISE Plus, SE Base, and StealthWatch ® to use Cisco DNA. Apart from generating intelligent output, it is also secure.
  • Delivers automated output
  • Provides security
  • Cost effective
  • Relies on many other software for usage of all functions.
  • License needs to be purchased for dependent software also.
  • Needs some tour to start the software.
It is suited if you want to automate the output. It delivers intelligence and security and switching to the software is easy in terms of transition. However, it requires a tour to start using the software for first-timers as it is not that user friendly. The new innovations in the software are focusing on the interface also.
  • It is cost-effective and thus provides benefits to the firm.
  • It is secure and hence the issue of theft or some other breach is less as compared to manual process or some other software.
  • It automates the process and hence reduces the manual effort which further reduces the dependency.
Because of the dependency on different software, it becomes difficult to use a single one of the CISCO products. One has to purchase the license of more than one product to get the desired output. It is not user-friendly for first-time users and thus a tour is required to make oneself comfortable with the product.
Cisco has a very quick response time and the queries are resolved on time. The concerns raised are addressed properly and they have trained people who have sufficient knowledge to resolve the queries. They also ask for feedback once a query is resolved which helps them in improving their current performance and thus helps improve customer satisfaction.

I've worked for a couple of years at a company which develops the ERP for a big
truck dealer in Brazil. As our software gets bigger and more complex, we
need to adapt continuously to provide the best solution for the dealers
to work. With Cisco DNA Software, we can automate and support
services to serve our user base and help our dev team on all those
complicated escalation problems.
  • Great policy-driven automation
  • Really modern and robust connections security
  • Complete analytics tools
  • Requires a lot of configuration
  • Could have more tutorials online
  • Not a very big community
Cisco DNA Software is really great for big companies that have a big network and have the constant challenge to scale. If you are in this context, this solution is well suited, but if not, maybe you have to consider other options--with a smaller fee and/or simpler learning curve.
The company has benefited from Cisco DNA Software, with the scalability features and great customer support from Cisco. Now we can serve our customers a lot faster and with more precise answers to their problems. Also, our network is more secure and elastic.
The initial configuration and installation can be really hard and laborious, but with all the Cisco support--and once you get the hang of it--it's all set and ready to work. There are tools easier to set up and use, but the Cisco DNA Software has great features and practically everything you'll ever need.
Cisco DNA Software customer support is absolutely great. We've never had problems with it and every time we've needed it, we got the support quickly and precisely. Nothing to complain abouy in this department.

Cisco DNA Software is being used to help make our organization more streamlined and more efficient. This software allows for automation and assurance tasks that are within the top 3 I have ever used. This program makes setting up network traffic, both wired and wireless, a breeze once you are able to get the hang of it and can get everything set up.
  • Automation
  • Accessibility
  • Ease of configuration
  • Initial set up
  • Legacy support
  • Consolidation of multiple programs.
Cisco DNA Software is well suited for providing a top-notch architecture that allows a company to monitor and direct their network traffic. This program provides an immense amount of visibility into network issues which allow for streamlining and funneling to make the network more efficient. The view into traffic patterns can save time, money, frustration, and so much more.
Cisco DNA Software has made it so much easier for us to accurately monitor our network and then make changes based on the statistics and datasets presented in this program. That leads to us being able to make changes to the network that allows for greater visibility and for us to be able to anticipate issues that may come our way.
While this program has been on the market for a while now and some updates would be a welcomed addition, I have to say that the program as it is now and the support given to our team has been great. It is easy to see that time was taken when building this software to anticipate issues and problems that people would run into. We don't have to reach out to support often, but when we do it's always a good experience.
