SCOM Previous Solutions

Pieter Van Blommestein
Manager, Principle Systems Engineer and team lead at BCX
We actually have not switched to this solution from another as we are evaluating and using several at the same time. We have used SolarWinds and then there's a new product called eSight that we have to use. The latter product is from Huawei and it is their monitoring tool for their network equipment. We basically were forced to start to support it because of client need. So there are four products that we supporting in our server for various reasons. But if I have to choose any one product for server monitoring to take care of all aspects of monitoring out of the box, SCOM is number one. That is it can do application monitoring, like SQL Server Stack Exchange, Active Directory, SharePoint, third party stats, VMware or VLAN — you name it. It's really an excellent product. So that is why my number one choice is SCOM. Put simply, it is the most complete. View full review »

Prior to this solution, we monitored our Windows servers using HP Operations Manager, which is now owned by Micro Focus. The switch was made because we already had SCOM integrated within the company. We were already paying for it as we were monitoring the Exchange environment, and we didn't want to pay double. It was a simple business decision. It was not based on a technical comparison between products. View full review »

I have worked with several products including CA Unicenter and SolarWinds, and we currently make use of more than one solution. From a network monitoring point of view, we have found that other solutions perform this task better than SCOM. View full review »

Personally, I have used an in-house solution and I have used SolarWinds before. It was not a case of switching because these were with different companies. View full review »

We had nothing essential in an enterprise managing console. This is relatively simple tooling, but we didn't have another solution on this scale. View full review »
