HP NNMi vs Solar Winds and what is the future of HP NNMi under Micro Focus

Hello everyone, been working with HP NNMi for many years now and things have change since HP NNMi was one of the best management tools for data networks.  Companies such as Solar Winds have been coming up and have presented the product as the best solution for managing data networks.  Is Micro Focus taking HP NNMi to the next level to be more friendly and compete with other management systems.  I am currently running version 10.10 and would really like to see Micro Focus either put out a rode map of this product and why we should still continue to support this platform and NOT move to Solar Winds or other network management systems.

Re: HP NNMi vs Solar Winds and what is the future of HP NNMi under Micro Focus

Obviously you havent been talking to any of the sales or product folks and just popped in to stir the pot.  Solarwinds still suffers from the same issues that it has had from its inital launch: scalability, cost, hardware footprint, and technology support.

Every sales weasel touts thier product as the best solution, you just have to do your due diligence in researching the solutions. Roadmaps are available for every Microfocus product.  If you're only at 10.10 I'd recommend upgrading to 10.3 patch 2 for the extra functionaility just in NNMI.

Have a nice day 🙂

Hello Andy, thanks for the quick response, yes Ill contact the sales reps, but it is important that Micro Focus present to their current customers the future of HP NNMi which we all love working with and how we can advise our companies NOT to look at Solar Winds or any other solutions.  Additionally any link you can share or white paper would help to present our case and move us forward supporting HP NNMi today and in the future....

That's why Andy suggested talking to your sales reps, so they can tell you that. 

You're not going to get formal roadmaps on a forum like this.
