Pros: Lots of functionalities are well packed together in a single tool. Buildings, rooms, racks, devices are nicely linked together and can give a visualization of all the components (Room overview, rack layout, ...)
We're using the datacenter inventory module and the centralized password database. It takes a while to get all information in the tool, but once it's in there, it can easily be retrieved or changed if ncessary.

Cons: RBAC could be improved
The update process could be simplified with automatic downloads and scheduled installations

Overall: This software helps us streamlining processes and getting our documentation up to date.

Excellent support and feature rich product set.

Pros: The customer service is really top-notch. The software itself is easy to install and use, and it's very powerful. Compared to other inventory and asset management applications I've used, Device42 offers a lot more functionality and a lot less hassle. The engineers release an update every week or two, and these updates often contain substantial improvements. The product just keeps getting better and better with every iteration!

Cons: As powerful as it is, Device42 is still missing a few features that would be nice to have. Not all hardware is supported for automated discoveries. However, I'm confident that the D42 engineers are working on it!

Overall: Automated inventory and asset management

One of the best DCIM platforms out there with an API that allows great possibilities

Pros: One of the best things about Device42 is their amazing customer support; they are very quick to address issues and are always implementing feature improvements. Device42 also offers a one-stop-shop for all things DCIM, a robust IPAM, Password management, and additional add-ons such as power monitoring that has ultimately helped improve our workflow and organizational capabilities. Their auto-discovery tools are quite in-depth at pulling information from our devices.

Cons: With all software, there will be bugs and issues to workout, but Device42's willingness to tackle and improve upon their platform constantly is what keeps us coming back. Auto-discovery can be difficult to implement depending on the complexity of the environment but the addition of remote collectors has definitely helped.

Overall: This has become a tool to nearly everyone in the organization. It has allowed us to keep track of a very dynamic environment and ultimately improved user workflows. These types of benefits improve our quality of work and allow us to save time in many ways for other aspects of our business.

A learning experience and rewarding once I was able to maneuver through the portal.

Pros: The software allowed me to easily import our Excel data into the software. This saved me a lot of time and allowed me more time to focus on my other daily duties.

Cons: What I dislike about the software is that there are so many steps to complete a task. For example, if we have a device to install, cable and place in production. There are different windows or separate Excel (if it's a bulk) spreadsheet to complete the task.
Another dislike is when I used the SNMP auto-discovery. It discovered even all of the non-pertinent VLANs. It showed over 600 VLANs, we have less than 50 VLANs. It basically counted for every switch port that had a VLAN label.

Overall: Asset management features.

Admittedly I have little experience with this software

Pros: They had some interesting features, i like the rest API and the link to Jira. They did seem very strong in the integration department.

Cons: The overall interface was not what we hoped for. It was difficult for us to find something and all the relationships that were important to us in an efficient manner. Too many click through steps. We were looking for a more complete CI picture.

Overall: We never went past the review process. It just wasn't bringing what we needed to move forward. I

Pros: Extremely quick responses and resolutions from support team. Auto-discovery features have proven to be very useful for us to quickly gather lots of information regarding our environment. Very granular reporting features keep our users happy.

Cons: Although I understand why it's this way, it is annoying not having the ability to drop to a command prompt on the main system or the remote collectors. However, I believe they may attempt to engineer a solution for this soon.

Overall: We were able to get our CMDB up-to-date very quickly. The asset management team is very happy.

Pros: The ease of use of the tool. It has a great API where you can program against. We used rack view a lot during the migration of our datacenter.

Cons: The IPAM part could use some rework, make it more easy to look at. As far as I know this is already on the roadmap.

Overall: It made our datacenter preparations quite easy.

Pros: Product is easy to learn and put to use
We work on a shoestring budget, so cost was a big factor in our decision to use this product
Support has been excellent from day one. We have submitted recommendations for the product and actually seen them written into the code.
New features being added all the time
API's allow us to integrate with VMware vRealize Automation

Cons: I can't really say that I have a Cons list. We have had some small issues here and there with scans and just things that we would like to see added. But support and development came through and helped us work out those issues! So, this is really a PRO

Pros: This is a one stop shop for any data center facility. We initially were shopping for a connectivity management tool and stumbled on this gem. You couldn't ask for more with a price point far below competitors.

Cons: It is a heavy lift on the front end during the initial install, but the end result is well worth it.

Overall: Complete visibility of our data center from layer one to power monitoring.

The CMDB we have been looking for.

Cons: This product has some limitation in current version, what could give use some manual job. However support is working with us to solve all our issues.

Overall: An independent hardware/software inventory system that can generate reports for renewals and keep track of hardware locations.

Pros: After trialing many different asset solutions, Device42 was by far superior. It came with a lot unique functionality we were looking for such as SAML, Jira Integration, workflows etc. What really made my life easier though was their thorough documentation on everything and their very timely and knowledgeable support. Their support was fantastic throughout the implementation process and always addressed issues expediently. I deal with many organizations support for various solutions we have and D42 definitely stands out for quality. I would definitely recommend their solution based on the above.

Cons: This isn't really a con but currently they only have an On-prem option. Overall though hosting it hasn't been much work involved.

Overall: Ease of use, great support, full use of features, great site documentation.

Easy to access, easy to use - means network documentation stays up to date.

Pros: Having information about our remote rack space documented and easily accessible has been a boon, especially when we need to request 3rd party remote hand to make simple changes for us. I think last month we needed a small change, and I was able to pull out Device42 and follow a set of cables through 2 patch panels in order to provide precise instructions on cable changes I wanted completed by the technician providing the remote hands.

Cons: We are currently primarily using Device42 to track remote sites on how things are situated in racks and how everything is interconnected at the site. One thing I feel they could improve for the future is the extraction of physical connectivity information from their software. I would love to be able to see a full holistic view of the physical interconnections throughout one room, or a building.

At the moment its easy to bring up interconnections on a single device, or a single rack, but nothing on a grander scale. I've spoken with support and they said they'll mention this to development to see if this is on the road map.

Overall: The software helps us keep track of our off-site colocations. We can track rack information, including what devices are where, power loads, and physical connectivity to each device and through patch panels.

Pros: I have used several of the DCIM offerings out there nowAn excellent tool for those users tired of being stuck within the confines of a closed off product. The flexibility Device42 offers their customers is hands down the best in the market. With the offering of an API, we have been able to integrate Device42 into numerous areas of our company, and internal systems. If your tired of closed systems that require tons of support, or those that can nickle and dime to with add-on features...then Device42 is for you. See something missing, simply present it to them, as their DEV team works directly with the customers to help them get what they need.

Superb product, allowed us to view/manage our infrastructure from a desk properly!

Pros: The flexibility of the product overall. It's ability to integrate with so many other products through it's open API was a key reason for purchase. I love the ability to make mass changes to devices by exporting the data out to a spreadsheet format and re-importing versus having to touch each device individually.

Cons: There are a few limitations to the current version of the product but support has been wonderful to deal with and they truly listen to their customers requests for future functionality. We are still learning the product so I can't speak on all functions as of yet. Building single scan jobs to encompass, SNMP v2/3 as well as SSH would be great versus having to build 3 different scans for the same subnet space. I'd like to see IPAM show all IP addresses for a particular subnet showing both used and unused IP's. Currently it will just show you used so you need to scan through and look for a break in the sequence versus looking for an IP with a green bubble showing it's available. These are small Cons and definitely not a show stopper for us. Just nice to haves.

Good Product, Excellent Support!

Pros: It is easy to use, and the support folks will work with you to find a root cause ¿ and stick with it. Great Support!

Cons: We were told that most APC UPS's were supported, but we had problems with a few of their devices. In the end, Device42 did a program rewrite and corrected everything. Well Done!

Overall: Device42 is a solid contender in the DCIM market, and will gain more ground as their reputation spreads. Most DCIM¿s require extensive training, professional services, and lots of ongoing help. Not Device42 ¿ it is intuitive and easy enough to use ¿ if you take time to listen and learn. When we were stumped, a quick support request on their portal was answered quickly.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don¿t overspend on another DCIM product that provides less for more. Try Device42 and see for yourself.
