Pros
If you run more than 5 devices you need this tool. With the ability to automate backups of iOS of the Cisco and other supported devices like HP and others you save time and money, it keeps a history and allows you to quickly restore a previous image. It also documents any and all changes to the device.

Cons
Really there are not many. Price is about the only complaint, its expensive. I have found that often Solarwinds is very proud of their software and think it needs to bring top dollar.

This is a very great tool but for organizations that have a very secure environment and can bear the cost.

Pros
We can download the configuration and implement it on other or new replacement network devices like routers and switches. We can even compare the configuration of before and after changes and it has very good auditing and reporting as well.

Cons
very expensive and don't have a mini version for small businesses and requires administrative privileges to work properly which might lead to security breaches.

If you want to spare the valuable time of your network engineers and let them work on critical stuff, and if your budget allows, Solarwind's Network Configuration Manager is totally capable of doing that.

Pros
I have used this software as our job was to provide routers/switches and we also provide configuration services to our clients and support. This software played a very big role in transferring configurations from one device to another and spare us the time to sit and configure each device and everything line by line.

Cons
for some people the cost can be a down side for not purchasing this product.

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
We can compare the configuration changes with ease and we can get alerts and reports for any activity that takes place which includes the details of the user who made the change. We can also download the configurations of one device and upload it to a new device to avoid doing all the configurations from scratch.

Cons
It is a very expensive tool and it requires admin privileges to monitor and maintain the device configuration.

Review Source: Capterra

Pros
This software allows us to keep an audit trail for all the changes that takes place and it also captures that who made the change, and when a change is made in the configuration of any device then before and after comparisons are also available. We are also using this tool to keep backups for our core devices and when we are installing a new device or replacing a faulty, it helps us to apply the previously saved configuration on to the new device within few minutes.

Cons
This is a very expensive tool for small businesses and it requires administrative privileges to perform certain tasks, which might lead to a breach if exposed.

Review Source: Capterra

I'm happy & very satisfied using NCM, feeling safe that in case any of my network devices failed, i can retrieve its configuration easily & even comparing it to older ones, as i can customize it up to a daily config backup task, also being able to push scripts to the NCM added devices makes life much easier & more centralized, saving effort & time.

Pros
I've been using NCM for more than 4 years now & i'm currently using its latest version 2020.2.6, using the license of 1000 allowed number of nodes, and i can say it is a module you can rely upon to maintain your Network devices configuration backed up continuously, i am having a daily backup of all the devices configuration & also can push any script into any added devices easily, saving time & effort. The support is very good & helps fixing any issue i may face, and also the forums community can provide quick solution when needed.

Cons
There is actually nothing i don't like about it except for its cost, and also for the admin using it, must be having a decent knowledge of SQL DB, yet their support can always help
