Well suited to handle MS Apps!
Good community to get support from
Lots of features in the "package"
Room for Improvement:
Need work to minimize the amount of events transferred to Incident systems.
High License cost for the 2007 version.
Super High cost for the 2012 version due to change to a CPU based.
Need lots of HW to handle 1000 servers application operations
The good reporting capabilities was one of the major functions which made us choose SCOM as the tool for handling MS application operations (only used for that, not the OS platforms).
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
