Pros
The advantages of SCOM are that it is definitely user friendly and a more appropriate solution for what we need.Availability monitoring is the feature I have found most valuable, as well as the capacity and ability to send notifications.SCOM has improved our organization by simplifying the monitoring process. The system tells you what the bi-weekly or monthly usage was and that enables us to report this information to the manager. It shows if there was a connectivity issue that needs to be fixed and it's easier to concentrate on what needs to get fixed. System errors, therefore, get fixed faster.The solution is scalable. If you want to monitor more you have to buy more licenses, but you can add on. We don't plan to increase usage.This is a product that does more generally than any of the competing solutions.This solution saves us a lot of work because it reduces the effort that is required in order to start monitoring.This solution helps our application teams by allowing them to drill further into issues and perform a root cause analysis.The most valuable features for us are the monitoring, the health explorer, and the console.

More SCOM Pros »

Device grouping is very easy, and you can discover thousands of devices in a few minutes.The solution reduces the complexity of our network monitoring because it can make my engineers do their jobs faster. The solution also reduces troubleshooting time for network administrators to pinpoint issues quicker.I like the fact that I can aggregate multiple interfaces into a single graph. It allows me to quickly the summary of traffic for multiple devices which is helpful.The most valuable feature is alerting.The most valuable features are scalability and reliability.We're able to recover more expensive ports on our access line devices.It is fairly simple and easy to use as an all-purpose network monitor.The product simplifies monitoring by providing real-time alerts through a GUI dashboard, email and texts.

Cons
I would like more customized reports. People should have some customization option on the dashboards for whenever they put multiple lists into it. Beyond customizing the content, there should be the ability to customize the colors so that they can engage some priority and mark challenges separately.In terms of features that could be improved, I would say the agent integration into the operating system. We are having difficulties integrating Linux into some of the networking devices.Then there is also an issue with capacity and limited space. That is something that needs to be improved.Of course, price is always an issue with Microsoft and could be improved.It lacks certain details that other products do better, like granular access and better application monitoring.All of the areas of reporting are very bad and need to be improved.The end-user components, including the dashboards, the administration console, and the web console, need to be improved.The console feature is very poor, and it would be very good for us if this were improved.

The inclusion of configuration management features and SIP links would improve this solution.There is a little bit of room to improve in the alerting section to give some more options there. It's all I can think of right now off the top of my head.That user interface for selecting things needs to be a little more intuitive.It would be nice if they had twenty-four-hour technical support because we contact Australia and we have to wait for them to open.Technical support for this solution is bad, as is everything with Cisco support.If it had more detailed NetFlow information then it would be far better.The interface could be more user-friendly and it would be nice if there were enhanced options for reporting.It doesn't do absolutely everything and it will require some additional software or hardware support to be a complete single solution.

The licensing cost is yearly and it's $5,000 to $8,000, I think.Statseeker is pretty cheap.This tool would probably be priced well if it had deeper NetFlow capabilities, but for our use case, in particular, we're only recovering ports after ninety days and looking at circuit congestion, it's pretty pricey.The yearly cost varies as per the number of devices being monitored. The cost for 25,000 devices is about $4500.We pay somewhere between $5,000 and $8,000 yearly in licensing fees.When it came to selecting this solution, it came down to cost.Compared to other solutions such as Zabbix and AKiPS, this solution is very well priced.We pay a yearly maintenance fee of approximately $40,000 USD.
