We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
This solution has made life easy with respect to patching, compliance, and OSD.This has made the management of our environment easier.This solution helps us by automating the patching of our system.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.It is a good choice for deployment that performs very well.It saves a lot of money when you can install things automatically and they are installed the exact same way on every computer.There is a faster time to rollout. If we get a new PC, it can be ready for productivity right away.With the SCCM inventory, we found a lot of rogue applications. We were able to identify them, find out who was running them, and either put them on our application list or remove them.

Cons
This solution needs to be supported on all Operating systems.Not everything is readily available, and there are a lot of commands that are only executable via PowerShell.This solution should be simpler, and more consistent across modules/sections.I would like to see an agentless version of the solution.The setup was complex and I faced a lot of problems initially because I was new to the solution.Our company would prefer not rebooting computers while people are using them. There seems to be no strategy behind it.Marketing: Our management doesn't understand that there is a piece of software which helps them automate and manage the entire network, as far as operating systems on computers.Troubleshooting in general needs improvement. There's just a ton of logs to go through, and so finding the error log that corresponds with that you're doing can sometimes be difficult.

I would like to have more integrations and custom plugins to input. Integration is always a big deal in a lot of different environments.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.Pricing and licensing are a downside of SCCM. It's expensive. I'd have to confirm this, but I think they changed the licensing to core-based instead of socket-based. It's not cheap, because you have to buy the software, you have to buy SQL. Another thing we learned from talking to Microsoft is that they provide you a license for SQL if you run it on the same box as the primary server. If you run it outside that box, you have to buy SQL. Microsoft does recommend you running it on the same box because of performance. But then, in order to run SQL, SCCM, and everything on the same box, you better have some resources. It's an expensive solution. There's no doubt about it.Pricing and licensing are horrible. You have to not look at dollar value to use SCCM. It's super-duper expensive but it works. The acquisition cost is expensive, it's labor-intensive. But it works.
