Best all-around, multi-features single interface, cross-platform monitoring solution for complex environment groupings
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The Monitor Templates functionality allowed us to spin up monitoring with .csv files pretty easily."
"There's no agent you need installed on the servers. In our environment, we have some servers out of our control so we cannot manage them. We use SiteScope to monitor the availability, the resources on the servers, etc. This allows us to do this job without installing agents so there's no need to take care of anything on the server."
"The product's ability to monitor systems and applications and send alerts and create support tickets are the most valuable features of the product."
"For the system environment, SiteScope can be useful."
"This solution allows us to standardize all of the reports for monitoring the network, so it helps a lot for auditing purposes."
"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."
"It takes a lot of the headache out of managing your data centers and software in other places."
"The most valuable features for us are the monitoring, the health explorer, and the console."
"This solution helps our application teams by allowing them to drill further into issues and perform a root cause analysis."
"This solution saves us a lot of work because it reduces the effort that is required in order to start monitoring."
"This is a product that does more generally than any of the competing solutions."
"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."
"They have not kept up with browser security requirements or advances in GUIs, they switched to a corruptible database architecture instead of text config files."
"Sometimes in a huge environment, I think the documentation does not provide the required calculations so you can't know what the required set up should be. You need to test."
"It may lack some features other products in the category have like more detailed transaction tracking."
"SiteScope isn't productive if you want to monitor RAM or if you want to monitor some URL."
"I would like to see more standard libraries for the market solutions, out of the box, that you don't need to do a lot of work on."
"I would like to see better support for monitoring Unix-based systems."
"On-prem network monitoring is something that could be improved drastically."
"The console feature is very poor, and it would be very good for us if this were improved."
"The end-user components, including the dashboards, the administration console, and the web console, need to be improved."
"All of the areas of reporting are very bad and need to be improved."
"It lacks certain details that other products do better, like granular access and better application monitoring."
"Of course, price is always an issue with Microsoft and could be improved."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"You have to pay for their "solution templates". Other tools do not charge you for knowledge-based monitoring bundles."
"Our licensing fees are approximately $30 per user, per month."
"If you have a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement, then this is part of the agreement."
"It is more expensive than the competition."
"SCOM is part of the System Center suite and I am satisfied with the pricing."
"We have an enterprise agreement that includes this product as part of it."

Top Answer: The tool dashboards are not good and don't meet our customers' needs. Because of this we generally use open source tools like Grafana and we also use Nagios for monitoring as a free tool. We're able… more »
