SCOM has improved our organization by simplifying the monitoring process. The system tells you what the bi-weekly or monthly usage was and that enables us to report this information to the manager. It shows if there was a connectivity issue that needs to be fixed and it's easier to concentrate on what needs to get fixed. System errors, therefore, get fixed faster.The solution is scalable. If you want to monitor more you have to buy more licenses, but you can add on. We don't plan to increase usage.This is a product that does more generally than any of the competing solutions.This solution saves us a lot of work because it reduces the effort that is required in order to start monitoring.This solution helps our application teams by allowing them to drill further into issues and perform a root cause analysis.The most valuable features for us are the monitoring, the health explorer, and the console.It takes a lot of the headache out of managing your data centers and software in other places.This solution satisfies all of the requirements that we need for our Windows-based systems, so if you are using the Windows platform then this is an easy solution.

Then there is also an issue with capacity and limited space. That is something that needs to be improved.Of course, price is always an issue with Microsoft and could be improved.It lacks certain details that other products do better, like granular access and better application monitoring.All of the areas of reporting are very bad and need to be improved.The end-user components, including the dashboards, the administration console, and the web console, need to be improved.The console feature is very poor, and it would be very good for us if this were improved.On-prem network monitoring is something that could be improved drastically.I would like to see better support for monitoring Unix-based systems.
