      Operations Management programs are very common in large-scale client environments.

      The penetration of the technology is into most of the Fortune 1000 client companies in North America.

      NetCool, Microsoft Operations Manager, Tivoli, CA UniCenter, OSI NetExpert and NetIQ are probably the most deployed of these products to management network environments.

      As for the rest of your questions, I’d recommend that you look at the research which Gartner has done on the subject. Note that these case studies are not cheap, but they are typically “vendor-neutral.”

      In addition, you should ask your vendor to provide you with independent researched documents on their products, as well as, a contact list of clients to verify their satisfaction with the product.
