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.

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.

There is room for improvement with the administrative part. They introduced Control Center to manage things in Zenoss 5. The services that Zenoss provides remained the same, but the administrative part, since they introduced Docker, etc., has become a little complexThe inclusion of a feature to show a graphical view of the network would be a helpful improvement.There was a problem with Zenoss and storage monitoring.

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.

It is very cost-effective compared to the tools I worked with in the past. The company is gaining a lot with respect to the cost factor. It provides agentless monitoring and in a very cheap way.
