Overall Satisfaction with Cisco DNA Analytics and Assurance

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
  • Admins have saved time diagnosing issues
  • IT is able to get ahead of problems before they occur
  • Money saved on separate monitoring products that may not work as well

Do you think Cisco DNA Analytics and Assurance delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Cisco DNA Analytics and Assurance's feature set?

Yes

Did Cisco DNA Analytics and Assurance live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Cisco DNA Analytics and Assurance go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Cisco DNA Analytics and Assurance again?

Yes

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.
