Overall Satisfaction with Cisco DNA Center

It helps to automate and manage various network devices. In addition, it helps to keep our network devices up to date with security patches.
  • Network automation.
  • Central management.
  • Easy to use and deploy.
  • Could use a user guide.
  • Better UI to help manage.
  • Integration with more 3rd party equipment.
  • High upfront cost.
  • Big learning curve.
  • Training for users.
  • SolarWinds Log & Event Manager
SolarWinds provided some functionality we were looking for, but was not as broad and particular to what we needed in our environment.
Cisco DNA works well for a bigger enterprise level deployment, but the cost and management get too high for small to mid-size companies.
