What do you like most about SCOM?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
This is a product that does more generally than any of the competing solutions.
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.
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 most valuable features for us are the monitoring, the health explorer, and the console.
This solution helps our application teams by allowing them to drill further into issues and perform a root cause analysis.
This solution saves us a lot of work because it reduces the effort that is required in order to start monitoring.
This solution satisfies all of the requirements that we need for our Windows-based systems, so if you are using the Windows platform then this is an easy solution.
It takes a lot of the headache out of managing your data centers and software in other places.
This solution allows us to standardize all of the reports for monitoring the network, so it helps a lot for auditing purposes.
