Future Tools

We are having a lot of problems with getting value from NNM still for simple topology based suppression and up/down monitoring. We have a new account team and a new technical lead, so maybe that will help HP fix our problems. The other option is NNM 8, which we are looking at, but will be missing some featured until 8.1 comes out.

We had a very good evaluation and POC with IBM Precision and Impact. Precision looks good, but we need to spend more time looking at it and comparing the amount of work to keep it up and running with NNM.

Impact was an easy sell. It will help us immensely with event enrichment and some of the automations we currently have in Omnibus. We'll see how the pricing negotiations work out.
