Overall Satisfaction with ScienceLogic

It's being used for end to end monitoring of infrastructure for one of our clients in Europe. We plan to discover it and feed the CMDB as well as create dashboards for business to see the current status and health of the services. ScienceLogic will be the single platform in the cloud to monitor on-premise as well as cloud workloads.

Pros

  • Hybrid monitoring
  • Simple licensing
  • SAAS as well as on-premise flexibility
  • Single solution for all Infrastructure monitoring requirements

Cons

  • More power packs required when compared to other legacy tools like BMC, CA, SCOM.
  • Should have more out of the box certified integrations with other tools in the industry like Dynatrace, Appdynamics, etc.
  • More out of the Box features like correlations, service mapping.
  • Could save on ServiceNow discovery modules as ScienceLogic is NOW certified for discovery.
  • Could not monitor legacy workloads and had to resort to existing open source software for some requirements.
Yes - SCOM, as it did not scale to customer cloud ambitions. ServiceNow discovery as it was an additional cost.
Yes, it has shown visibility to IT and Business from a single console. The service views and the event management from a single console enabled the command center to work on the most critical events.
No, it's used only for monitoring.
  • ScienceLogic is new for the team. We are learning how to use it more effectively for the organization.
Hybrid monitoring, flexible on-premise and SAAS options. A single license for end to end monitoring. The ease of deployment.
Suitable when in need of a single solution for end to end hybrid environments monitoring. Suitable when the customer is cloud focused and on-premise workloads are going to be out of use in the future. Less appropriate when there is a large number of technologies to monitor—including Legacy, which is not supported by ScienceLogic. Yet to see if this is suitable for very large environments.
