NCM - Great so Far

We are using NCM to make sure we have config backups of our network devices. In the future, we will explore the compliance and syslog change management piece.

PROS

Personally, I like the layout and the many different features. We are just getting started and have only scratched the surface but so far, its been pretty sweet. I would say there is a bit of a learning curve but that comes with most things. With a little trial and error, it is not too bad. That is not to mention support is great (thanks [sensitive content hidden]), they respond ASAP and get you to a resolution.

CONS

I think the inventory view could make it a bit more clear on what is managed on what isn't. For example, you might have a device that has the credentials applied and you can attempt to back it up but it might not be "managed". Maybe the icons could be more explanatory initially.

Reason for choosing ManageEngine Network Configuration Manager

Haven't fully decided yet as it is a team decision.

ManageEngine NCM - Your one-stop Networking configuration tool

When it comes to PCIDSS compliance, our organization was suffering with configuration backup and auditing. But after proper set of ManageEngine Network Configuration Manager, we were able to comply with all PCIDSS requirements with much ease.

PROS

The most loved feature is ManageEngine NCM is multi vendor supported. We do have Cisco, Juniper and HP switches and still we can use Manage Engine NCM to manage all the switches. And it is same with firewalls too. So it is just one solution for all the networking devices of the organization.

CONS

If the initial setup and configuration can be simplified it will be much better. setup and configuration was not easy as expected. However throughout the initial setup, vendor support was remarkable.

Useful add-on

I like it but it took a while to find my way around. The support team are great and very helpful but some dedicated training videos would be good.

PROS

NCM is part of our Opmanager deployment so I didn't know much about it when we deployed it The more I use it the more i found out about it. It has some very useful features and is a very good bolt on for Opmanager

CONS

It is not well laid out. Not sure if this is because it is a bolt on rather than a standalone product but I feel that things are scattered about, instead of everything being under a single menu option.. There are two or three different ways to get to NCM specific components and this make sit difficult to find setting if you are unfamiliar with it.

Reason for choosing ManageEngine Network Configuration Manager

It came as part of the Opmanager suite so it wasn't a proactive choice.
