What is most valuable?

* Platform integration * Native tools for a Windows environment * Low learning curve * Administrators can use almost all its features out-of-the-box.

How has it helped my organization?

* The IT environment aligned to SLAs. * System Center helps to create the basis for ITIL alignment. * Many processes could be implemented out-of-the-box, and this helped to adopt processes in areas which we lacked.

What needs improvement?

The following need to be improved: * GUI * Responsiveness * Mobile environments * Platform performance. It still demands high computing resources.

What is most valuable?

Management Packs for Microsoft-specific products, which help us implement the best practices for each product. The detail in the alarms is great.

What needs improvement?

Less server consumption would help, as would better, more flexible reports.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used WhatsUp Gold, but System Center came with our Microsoft license.

What other advice do I have?

Don't install all the Management Packs at the same time; this is key.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't evaluate others before going with this, but we are actually analyzing Operations Management Suite, a powerful integration with SCOM 2012 R2.

What do you think of Microsoft System Center?

One Really powerfull product is System Center. With my team we implemented the System Center family such as SCCM, SCOM, SCVMM, and DPM System Center is a full product that can work together and do a lot of cool things such as monitoring ٍservers and even non-Microsoft products such as routers, switches and Linux machines using System Center Operation Manager. You can use SCOM to send emails or view very detailed alerts or even take an action (although this will need some configuration with System Center Orchestrator). You can do many things with SCOM and be aware of every component in your infrastructure environment. I consider SCOM the second powerful server in the system center family. With System Center Configuration manager you can Manage PCS and servers, keep their software…

What is most valuable?

2012 product is the whole suite with one SKU Automation is the heart of SC2012 Third party, management packs integration Control other hypervisors (VMware and Citrix) API integration

What needs improvement?

Installation is cumbersome and not much documentation available for best practices for installation. While some components require less prerequisites others are very extensive. Third-party hypervisors difficult to configure

What other advice do I have?

System Center 2012 SP1 is one hell of infrastructure management suite. With careful planning and installation of key components, you can take control of your entire environment.
