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

Pros
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.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.

The most valuable feature is the alert and alarm monitoring.We detect problems before the customer does and before it actually happens using the predictive functions in Zabbix.The implementation process is very straightforward.The most valuable feature is the support for monitoring Cisco switches.Simple network monitoring that is easy to install and manage.

Cons
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.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.

More SCCM Cons »

If Zabbix had a better dashboard then it would be nice.I would like to see a more flexible mobile client, and better HA out of the box.The server monitoring could be better.The main problem with Zabbix is that you have to spend time writing templates for all of the products that you have.The product delivers false positives during reporting because of flapping. Other reasonably priced alternatives may have better performance.

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.
