Love the process mapping capabilities

In theory we really like this product. We have implemented it across our enterprise but it has been slow to be adopted by the SDLC teams. The process mapping capabilities are amazing!

Implementation was easy;

The support docs were very well documented and easy to follow. It required minimal effort to install and get it up and running. Overall the performance is satisfactory. We are waiting for more stable version to be released.

Limited flexibility and openness to Hybrid Cloud reflects immaturity of product offering.

A key focus is flexibility and openness of integration options. Company requirements dictate a hybrid solution. The maturity of capabilities to meet those requirements is lacking and therefore prohibits rapid implementation and opens the door for consideration of a competing solution.

Speed to implement was awesome, however some of the options were confusing

Time to implement solutions was very good, and provisioning new environments and deploying applications was a breeze. That was the biggest benefit. We were able to provision and deploy new applications, including servers and back end resources, in minutes rather than days. The administration controls and frameworks worked well, but we had some issues connecting to the environment using the command line tools from behind a firewall. Performance of the web administration console was also lacking at times.
