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

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."

"There was a problem with Zenoss and storage monitoring.""The inclusion of a feature to show a graphical view of the network would be a helpful improvement.""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 complex""It would be ideal if the product offered sound alerts."

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."
