I think it would be good if some improvements were made.""The operations could be faster and you need some patience with this tool.""The cost of the product can be improved.""This solution needs to be supported on all Operating systems."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"For the one that works with SCCM, it is relatively inexpensive at $8 USD per node, yearly. The standalone product has two versions; the one that patches servers is about $45 USD annually and the version that patches workstations is about half that price at $22 USD."

"The licensing is good because they have various options, depending on what you are looking for.""SCCM comes with its own version of SQL Server. If you use that SQL Server with SCCM and don't use it for another applications than you get an SQL Server for free.""Overall, I think it's fine. It's pretty much in-line because there are ways to offset it with the Office 365 licensing."
