BigFix Previous Solutions

Technical Engineer at a individual & family service with 10,001+ employees
We switched to BigFix mainly because of scalability and for centralizing the work that we did, rather than being distributed. From what I know of SCCM, and the little that I've used it, the granularity that relevance an ActionScript allows you over the endpoint, and the information coming back from the endpoint is fairly significant compared to the work that you would have to do to script all that out in SCCM to get that information back.

Senior Security Consultant at Tech Data Corporation
We initially switched because we had different solutions for all different platforms. We had one for MAC OS, we had one for Windows, and we weren't really using them that much so we were able to use it to manage all of them with a single tool instead of a bunch of different ones. View full review »

When considering a solution the criteria we consider are the features, whether the specific tool provided by that vendor will cater to our services or our requirements. Second, we look into the credibility of the OEM. Third, is the cost. View full review »

We weren't previously using a solution, so we knew we had to invest in one. We brought in a bunch of different solutions and BigFix was the one that won out. View full review »
Engineer with 10,001+ employees
We've used BigFix in the past with other companies so we knew BigFix was a superior tool. Ten years prior, the current tool we were using had a lot of overhead, was time-consuming, used a lot of resources, and time spent on it. We knew there were better tools out there. It's far superior and there's no comparison to SCCM. It is so easy to navigate in the console. Everything's in a single view within a fixlet or a task. You can tell what actions are taking place versus having to go through separate menus in your console to figure it out. Just that alone and knowing instantly what your environment looks like based off of content makes BigFix superior. View full review »
Technical Lead at a university with 1-10 employees
I haven't messed with SCCM too much. There's a lot of things that are desirable in SCCM regarding scalability. There are lots of workflows that exist that SCCM is pretty universally used and can make things happen instantly. It can also help with a lot of the zero configuration, zero-touch computerization things but we get to get a little more specific with BigFix. We can employ a lot of things from all kinds of different sources to help tailor our solutions and we have better functionality with Mac and Lenox. View full review »

Technical Consultant at Activedge Technologies
I initially onboarded with Microsoft SCCM. The user interface leaves a lot to be desired, performance impact as you go above 10,000 endpoints and also maintenance tasks like setting up of distribution points are not available at the click of a button. View full review »
Technology Engineer at a retailer with 1,001-5,000 employees
Our previous solution was extremely unstable. We had a lot of downtime and the inability to reach clients. We ended up choosing BigFix because it was already in an aspect of our organization, and so it was easy to adopt for our endpoints. View full review »
