The availability performance matrix and the reporting capabilities are the solution's most valuable features.The features that I have found most valuable are the ease of configuration and the easy discovery of the environment.System Center helps to create the basis for ITIL alignment.Many processes could be implemented out-of-the-box, and this helped to adopt processes in areas which we lacked.Managment Packs for Microsoft-specific products, help us implement the best practices for each product.The detail in the alarms is great.

Cons
The documentation isn't very good and the options are very complex.In the next release, I would like to see better integration between the cloud environment and the on-premises environment.We've never had any issues with the solution, but it's still nice to have overall improvements on it. It could be easier and faster to use, for example.The documentation is not very detailed. They need to improve it and add to it. They should ensure there are lots of visuals to help users better understand the solution.If Microsoft IIS could work well with AppOptics or things like PHP, Python, and other custom languages that run on the webserver, it would be ideal. I think there are cases where people need to use Apache instead of IIS when IIS doesn't work well with other web languages.This solution needs to be easier for cases where you want to have an IIS cluster.The solution should improve the cluster environment and load balancing.The areas of this solution that need improvement are monitoring, debugging, and troubleshooting.

The solution's dashboard needs improvement.They should have some customized solutions or internal development, then maybe it could be easier to use different solutions or some self-developed solution.The platform performance and responsiveness need improvement. It still demands high computing resources.Less server consumption would help, as would better, more flexible reports.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The price of the cloud system is a bit high.This solution comes included with Windows Server.It is licensed with your Windows installation which makes it relatively cheap if you already have a Windows Server sitting around.
