We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
Having all the processes, fields, and settings already setup out-of-the-box, thus minimizing implementation time.The ease of use and integration made it a worthwhile investment, since we did some integrations with other tools making our lives easier.MyIT is simple to use and its mobility is a big plus for our on the go users.The MyIT product has given our end users a much better perception of Remedy and made the product look more fluid. This has made people more likely to log calls rather than do work offline.Improved our organization with better customer experience and reporting abilities.The mobile features are the best part of the new version. It is easy to be notified and update your work from a mobile, which is great.The way you can customize this product to adapt to the process the customer is already using is what sets this apart from other ITSM products out there. This helps customers to adapt to the tool pretty quickly.The versatility and customizability of the product is what I like most.

Cons
Compared to ServiceNow, BMC Remedy is somewhat "closed." I can go to the ServiceNow website and learn everything there is to know about the product, and training is available. That really wasn't available with BMC Remedy.If I'm working with a client who wants to expand and move into other areas - they want to expand their workflow and other parts of the organization, they want to do some work with project management, they want to do some work with HR - I'm not sure that BMC Remedy is doing that. And it's because of their platform. Any software has a lifecycle. To me, BMC is a dated architecture.Support could be more skilled. We are wasting too much of our time debugging.​The amount of software issues are still too big, even considering the complexity of the tool.Whenever you start exploring some new product features, you run into defects. It has been like this for the last six years.SmartIT could include PR. This would help us greatly in bridging the gap between Remedy's views and SmartIT.From time to time, we had issues with stability, but I think that is our fault due to extra processes that we implemented to fit our business needs.Needs less infrastructure requirements.

The mobile solution has a lot of room for improvement, especially in geopositioning capabilities, tracking capabilities, and configuration capabilities, in order to let the tech operate online and offline.​​Maximo is a big system, so the initial setup is complex.Vendor management needs enhancement.Revision management of file attachments.Although you can create notifications with Maximo, the configuration and options could be improved.The initial setup was complex, because it is a complex product.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It is costly, but it is well worth it.Just make sure you really sit down and look at what you will be using per user, therefore you will not be surprised with a big bill. You do not want every user having every license, it really is not needed.Please always get the latest quote from a BMC partner or from BMC. Check for the latest offerings.While purchasing, try to negotiate on per user licensing costs, associated maintenance, and purchase 20% more then what you think you should have. Bulk is always cheaper.If Customer and IT agents are happy, that is one of the greatest ROI. However, one of the major factors is Leadership, because at the end they have to justify the cost.

​Explore internal processes in order to evaluate the correct number of users in each Maximo module, then evaluate the different offers of pricing and licensing.​The concurrent user license is much more effective in management and cost-wise, as it is more suitable for maintenance management.Explore the possibility of using DB2. You will avoid the cost of SQL Server or Oracle licenses.Where available, concurrent licenses can be more cost efficient and provide more flexibility.You pay for what you get. There are lots of options depending on how you would like to implement Maximo.
