It is too costly. It is one of the best tools, but because of pricing, not all clients support it. Its licensing is on a yearly basis.

The price is reasonable, but our customers find it expensive.

The licens price of the HCL BigFix is very fair. The challenge is the license of the MS SQL server. If you can handle DB2 - The DB2 database server that is included with BigFix is free to use. Because the MS SQL -server express cannot be used unless demo purposes, I recommend and SPLA license for the MS SQL server wich gives you the oppuritiny to connect an unlimited numbers of clients to the BigFix server.

BigFix does license per server and per workstation. The cost depends on how many servers or work stations you are dealing with, and which tier of service you use. BigFix consists of four modules. You get what we call the Platform Edition, which you get for free. The patch service is maybe $0.50 per workstation per month. Then there's the basic server cost, which is about $1.50 per server per month. You also get into Lifecycle which does power management, OSD remote control, and those types of things, and that might be about 10 times the price - which works out to about $13 per server and, maybe $5 per workstation per month. It's all pretty customizable and you can just get the bare minimum or trade-up for a bit more.

We always were able to get our client the best cost from the vendor, so pricing was not really an issue.

License management isn't quite as easy as it should be to deal with the licensing. You need to take the server down to import the new licenses which I find to be annoying.

Compliance, and lifestyle are a bit pricey especially to customers that get SCCM included as part of their ELA. It's makes convincing harder.

It is cheaper than other solutions on the market.
