  • Capacity On Demand to scale up and down environments
  • SaaS model allows our team to have less involvement in managing or controlling the underlying cloud infrastructure including network, servers, operating systems, storage, or even individual application capabilities.
  • SaaS model allows our team to worry less about upgrades, fix packs, environment support etc.
  • Logging function: Currently use Kibana Logging Service, but [we expected] this feature to be integrated to ODM on the Cloud Dashboard.
  • Rule Artifacts Metrics should be available from ODM on Cloud Dashboard
  • Performance Improvement: Sometimes we experience very slow response time when using the Decision Center

  • IBM provides great customer support
  • Obtaining access was easy and went very smooth
  • IBM Cloud Private alleviates and meets the security requirements demanded in a regulated industry.
  • More hands on training outside of virtual classes would be helpful.

  • Creating a project and users is very easy and I can manage my configurations anytime, which is ideal.
  • Self-service was a big selling point. At times there are issues that I can't figure out, but for the most part, I'm able to manage everything with little to no assistance.
  • Blue Box is scalable - I can quickly add capacity at any time. Easy to use and navigate.
  • A little on the expensive side, but not bad if you’re a large company.
  • Larger operating systems can take longer to configure. Not a huge problem, but expect to spend some time on it.
  • If you do need support, it can take a while to get the help you need.
