We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This product is a great solution at a great price as long as it is only going to be used for a local area network."
"The most valuable feature is that I am able to patch third-party solutions."
"The most valuable feature is the graphical-based reports of software updates that have been successful, the ones that have failed, and a summary of where the failures are what security breaches may occur."
"This solution helps us by automating the patching of our system."
"This has made the management of our environment easier."
"This solution has made life easy with respect to patching, compliance, and OSD."
"The most valuable features are Remote Connect, SUP, Cloud functionality, Report, Query, and third-party patching."
"The most valuable features are application deployment and task-sequenced imaging."
"Patching is the main feature because SCCM is made to control the entire environment without manually interpreting. So it is good to use for patching."
"Microsoft is being very competitive right now, and they are really investing in a lot of new features to be more competitive in the marketplace."
"This solution is limited to the local area network only and cannot manage remote devices."
"The documentation on how to use this solution in a Linux environment is not clear, which is something that should be improved because it is complicated."
"I would like to see an agentless version of the solution."
"This solution should be simpler, and more consistent across modules/sections."
"Not everything is readily available, and there are a lot of commands that are only executable via PowerShell."
"This solution needs to be supported on all Operating systems."
"The cost of the product can be improved."
"The operations could be faster and you need some patience with this tool."
"The main room for improvement is the on-screen display. I think it would be good if some improvements were made."
"We'd like the solution to make it easier to manage remote users."
"GFI LanGuard has very fair pricing compared to other similar solutions out there."
"The licensing is good because they have various options, depending on what you are looking for."
"Pricing is negotiable with Microsoft, depending upon which of their packages you choose."
"When you compare this solution with other tools in the market you might actually find a lot of variation in the pricing and that's why people opt for the other tools rather than Microsoft tools."
"Its price is okay because it is part of our licensing."
