Overall Satisfaction with Sovereign Systems

  • Product deployment and configuration
Sovereign Systems was engaged to implement the VMware vRealize Suite of products for our company. They had a clear and concise plan of attack for the initial engagement, provided a design session to understand our needs and recommended a clear path forward. Through the process the resources were knowledgeable and were able to tap additional talent for some of the rough spots that came up along the way.
  • The provided pre-req documentation was thorough and well thought out, making it easy to jump into the project.
  • The design session to gather our requirements was very helpful, Sovereign's familiarity with the vRealize product line along with diagramming our desired layout confirmed our decision to bring in assistance with the project.
  • When we ran into some issues with Sovereign's custom code their development team was on top of it and solved the issue in a matter of a few days.
  • Our environment is unique and had some requirements that exceeded Sovereign's experience. While this was never a huge deal, it did bring about some bouts of trial and error.
  • If possible during engagements it is best to play to different resource's strengths, in some cases someone else may have been a better fit for the task at hand if availability permitted.
Our goal was to find the best suited provider for the vRealize Suite. Through networking at various vendor events Sovereign's name came up multiple times when we explained our requirements. Our meeting with Sovereign was very impressive as well, instead of just stating they could provide the services we needed, they provided a detailed breakdown of the services they provide and how they fit into our requirements.
Overall project management has been very responsive. We met our timelines for the engagement and weekly status updates helped keep on top of any open items we had. Scheduling was very easy and we were provided onsite resources when requested.
In the vRealize space, I don't think there is a company better suited to assist with implementation. They have several installations under their belt and will get things up and running in a timely fashion. They are still a smaller firm which allows for more agility and flexibility during engagements. For very large, complex environments there may be some advantages to sticking with the vendor.
