TechValidate Research on CA Infrastructure Management


HCL uses multiple CA products for network performance monitoring

Introduction

This case study of HCL is based on a September 2014 survey of CA eHealth customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“CA eHealth is a very good tool to monitor network performance of network devices.”

Challenges

  • Held back from investing more into their infrastructure management and monitoring solutions because:
    • Nothing

Use Case

  • Is currently investigating ways to better monitor routers and switches across many domains.
  • Uses 2-5 products for infrastructure management and performance monitoring.
  • The following features are most important in providing insight into the performance of their infrastructure:
    • Support for multiple platforms
    • Mutli-tenant awareness
    • Monitoring all network devices
    • Monitoring all servers
    • Monitoring server app performance
    • Managing traps, alarms and alters
    • Separating interfaces for admin and non-admin users
  • Currently runs the following in addition to CA eHealth:
    • CA Application Performance Management
    • CA Network Flow Analysis
    • CA Nimsoft Monitor
    • CA Performance Management
    • CA Service Operations Insight
    • CA Spectrum
  • Runs the following add-on capabilities to improve service quality and visibility into infrastructure performance:
    • Database APIs, queries or exports
    • SNMP agents
  • Uses the following resources in order to maximize their CA eHealth investment:
    • CA Support (support.ca.com)
    • CA education courses
    • CA Communities

Results

  • Rates the following CA eHealth capabilities as compared to other network monitors:
    • Live KPI reporting: vastly superior
    • SLA reporting: superior
    • Application performance: superior
    • Server & system performance: vastly superior
    • Compliance monitor & reporting: vastly superior
