Overall Satisfaction with Cisco DNA Center

It is being used by the headquarters and is in the process of being pushed out to the branch offices. It is roughly 80% deployed. It mainly provides automation, speeds deployment of network services, and standardizes configurations in the Enterprise Network.
  • Configuration standardization
  • Automated deployment of devices/services
  • Overall management of Cisco infrastructure
  • Interface isn't intuitive (even if it is better than previous Cisco tools)
  • Needs to tie in with SD-WAN and ACI
  • It has reduced human-error network outages
  • It has helped reduce time spent troubleshooting
  • Helps enforce policy in a consistent and auditable way
  • Reduces time spent on licensing and maintenance renewals
DNA Center is best for Cisco environments and is a more complete management, automation, assurance, and deployment tool.
Well suited to medium/large all-Cisco Enterprise Environments. Not worth the cost (in time/money) for small enterprises. Pairs well with Cisco ISE and Cisco Threat Defense environments.
