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

The reporting is very good.The most valuable feature is the reporting of incidents.We've been in contact with Microsoft technical support mainly. After doing the research ourselves and troubleshooting, etc., if we can't find a permanent solution, we contact Microsoft to help us fix the issue. Sometimes the issue never gets fixed even by Microsoft. It can sometimes require us to reinstall the solution. However, these are very rare instances.The most requested feature from our customers is the helpdesk ticketing system.Many more features than other comparable products.SCSM is easy to learn because all of the material, including training videos, can be found online.A very convenient package like an all-in-one tool but it is actually five or six products acting well together.The solution is quite easy to integrate with other Microsoft products.

The most valuable feature of this solution is the incident management module.Its ITSM approach is quite useful.When it comes to implementing new features, they listen to what their customers want via a suggestion forum that they have.This solution has provided me with a well-defined process and interaction, compared to my previous tool, GLPI.

More TOPdesk Pros »

The configuration could be easier.We would like to see a web-based interface that works on mobile devices.One of the disadvantages in this product is that the reporting module is not very easy. It requires SQL development skills, which not all customers or IT professionals have.The user interface needs to be improved.They need more integration with open-source products.Better integration with other services in Azure is needed because everything is moving from on-premises to the cloud, and as an integrator, we have to help our clients with the migration.Resources for understanding compliance and relative compliance need to be made available.It's not too hard to compile stuff but it is hard to manage the solution. Even the design itself makes it difficult for management.

More SCSM Cons »

Change management implementation, facility management, and making reservations on assets can be improved.The solution's change management could be better.This solution is modular so you only buy what you need, but I prefer what some companies are doing where they include everything in the package.An operator is also a user but requires creating two different records.

More SCSM Pricing and Cost Advice »

Compared to other products in this segment, I think that they are priced well and not too expensive.The cost of the solution on a yearly basis is $20,000. Technical support is not extra. It's included in the yearly cost. Updates are also included. The solution is good at keeping its product up to date.
