Akkadian Provision Manager vs. Cisco Prime Provisioning

Key Feature Differences

Akkadian Provisioning Manager (APM) and Cisco Prime Provisioning are two software tools intended to simplify the native provisioning of Cisco Unified Communications (UC) and Collaboration.

APM is an alternative to the UC provisioning functionality of Cisco Prime. Many of our customers come to us after trying Cisco Prime and realizing its limitations. They want a turnkey replacement for Cisco Prime Provisioning. APM offers much more workflow automation and reporting capabilities. It’s easier to deploy, more intuitive to use and generates a faster and more powerful ROI.
