How large is your environment? Was Bocada not scalable to what you needed ?

We evaluated both Bocada's BackupReport and Aptare's StorageConsole at the
same time.  Aptare wins in every category from installation, ease of use,
and vendor cooperation.  I started with BR and thought it was okay but not
great.  I then installed SC and the eval was effectively over - it wins
hands down.  We requested some features to be added to the product as part
of the purchase agreement and they did a great job in supplying those
features in a reasonable time.  The rest of you Aptare customers can thank
me for a few of those :-)

The pricing models between Bocada and Aptare are quite different so what's
cheaper for one customer could be more expensive for another.
The only way to know what you'll have to pay is to request a quote from
