Pros
The most valuable feature is the scalability.The product is useful for patch management.The initial setup is straightforward and not too complicated.Microsoft is being very competitive right now, and they are really investing in a lot of new features to be more competitive in the marketplace.Patching is the main feature because SCCM is made to control the entire environment without manually interpreting. So it is good to use for patching.The most valuable features are application deployment and task-sequenced imaging.The most valuable features are Remote Connect, SUP, Cloud functionality, Report, Query, and third-party patching.This solution has made life easy with respect to patching, compliance, and OSD.

The security features are very valuable.I'm not so familiar with the tool but I like the interaction of the console to the picture. Patching is the primary model I have been focusing on for the last couple of weeks. So I have created a proof of concept environment and have been checking the available features.Tanium has made the process of detecting threats more proactive with its detection. So, the process is easier and more efficient.

Cons
The deployment process is lengthy and should be quicker to complete.Microsoft should extend support for additional platforms.With Microsoft Premier Support, you get what you pay for. There's Third Tier Support that you pay for. If you pay for that, you get excellent support, and if you don't pay for that, then you get the less experienced staff.We'd like the solution to make it easier to manage remote users.The main room for improvement is the on-screen display. 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.

More SCCM Cons »

The solution lacks mobility.Most of the time, agent-relative issues have to be more equipped with self-healing features. At times, the agent is there, but for some reason, it doesn't report a status. It gives certain problems that are obviously agent-based.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.
