Overall Satisfaction with Cisco DNA Center

Mostly using this as a way to see all our Cisco equipment in one place, check their status, patch levels, firmware updates, and some basic config options. It solves the issue of having to bounce around to a ton of different management screens to do these all individually. We use it in the IT department to cover all our companies Cisco devices.
  • Make it easy for users for all levels to get info from the network devices.
  • Fairly simple setup
  • Snappy interface
  • Total cost of ownership with all
  • Confusing licensing situation
  • Infrequent updates
  • Generally, over time, we save lots of time and effort by sticking with Cisco gear.
  • We generally have less headaches by using a centralized DNA system.
  • More time has to be initially spent training support staff.

Do you think Cisco DNA Center delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Cisco DNA Center's feature set?

Yes

Did Cisco DNA Center live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Cisco DNA Center go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Cisco DNA Center again?

Yes

Very likely would recommend. The goal of keeping everything in the Cisco ecosystem is ease of use. You can count on their systems to work well together and mostly "just work". You pay the premium for such but that's life. After having all these devices connected to the DNA center, it would be tough going to any other vendor, which sounds like a smart business decision by them!
