Pros
"This solution helps us by automating the patching of our system.""This has made the management of our environment easier.""This solution has made life easy with respect to patching, compliance, and OSD.""The most valuable features are Remote Connect, SUP, Cloud functionality, Report, Query, and third-party patching.""The most valuable features are application deployment and task-sequenced imaging.""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.""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.""The initial setup is straightforward and not too complicated."

Cons
"This solution should be simpler, and more consistent across modules/sections.""Not everything is readily available, and there are a lot of commands that are only executable via PowerShell.""This solution needs to be supported on all Operating systems.""The cost of the product can be improved.""The operations could be faster and you need some patience with this tool.""The main room for improvement is the on-screen display. I think it would be good if some improvements were made.""We'd like the solution to make it easier to manage remote users.""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."

More SCCM Cons »

"The main problem with Zabbix is that you have to spend time writing templates for all of the products that you have.""The server monitoring could be better.""If Zabbix had a better dashboard then it would be nice.""The only improvement I would suggest, revolves around its AI and ML capabilities.""For us, the initial setup was complex""The documentation could be improved.""Having a more customizable interface and dashboard would be an improvement.""I would like to remotely connect to the computer, and Zabbix doesn't have this capability."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Pricing is negotiable with Microsoft, depending upon which of their packages you choose.""When you compare this solution with other tools in the market you might actually find a lot of variation in the pricing and that's why people opt for the other tools rather than Microsoft tools.""Its price is okay because it is part of our licensing.""Presently, I am using a free trial version.""We have to pay for a license."

"I was using the free, Community Edition.""We purchased Zabbix for a good price, including support""We are using the free, open-source version.""It's an open-source solution that can be used free of charge.""This solution is completely open-source, so it is quite affordable.""Zabbix is open-source so if one wishes to implement it in-house, they must have qualified professionals to set up and optimize databases, Linux/Unix OS, PHP, Apache, and depending on what is monitored, a full-stack network and systems administrator may be needed.""Zabbix is free but if you use it in production then you have to pay for it.""My manager is very happy because it doesn't cost anything."
