If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Microsoft System Center, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
Take a minute to learn more about the tool. It's powerful. Do a bit of training. I would rate it an eight out of ten.
I'm not sure I would use this product if I were building a new infrastructure now. I would be more likely to use VMware, Vsign, and Visualize. The tools of VMware cover everything. They are more advanced and have more tools and you can use it for everything in the infrastructure. If you're using only Microsoft products then this is a good solution because you're working in a unified environment. The whole infrastructure functions better and you can monitor without problems. It makes life easier for the technicians and engineers in the company. I would rate this product a seven out of 10.
I would rate this product a nine out of 10.
We use the on-premises deployment model. In terms of advice I would give to other users, I'd say before implementing the solution, you have to plan for your environment appropriately, and seek advice from product experts at Microsoft or their business partners. I would rate the solution 8.5 out of ten.
We don't need to monitor the application level instead of the infrastructure, which is a standard feature fo Microsoft System Center, but it is not enough for us. Usually, the infrastructure is stabilized, but we have many issues in our applications which is not standard and usually, it's an out of the box application and we must monitor these features. Before we were using Azure, and we were contacting Microsoft support monthly, depending on when we were implementing a new solution or if when we were having issues with the firewall. It all depends on the purpose of using this solution and what you are monitoring, that is the main point of the decision tree. If you have a standard solution or books safe, the secure book, a secure or standard package, then Microsoft would be the right solution for that. The most important is the configuration, the first implementation, and to find the right location, how to implement and find their interaction or relations between monitored environment and assets. It is not always easy to find the relationships between the items and how they can impact the whole solution. We are customers and I am a happy user of this solution and I have not had any significant issues with this solution. It works well for me and our companies. I would recommend this solution. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
