It's able to cover a large amount of devices so in essence it provides broad coverage and it's extensible as well, however it's not doesn't necessarily goes as deep as some purpose built tools. This may not be a bad thing as it allows them to focus more on the functionality as opposed to the nuance of every single device, but where it then makes up for this is to be able to ingest other data sources and still give you IT/Business service visibility.
