Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Microsoft System Center.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The multi-tenancy support needs to be improved. We need to have the ability to manage several different environments from one central point of administration.
In our case, the solution would be improved if they migrated to a cloud version. There could also be some improvement in the environment, it should be more user friendly.
We recently carried out a complex implementation and I was part of the official design team for that project. The most difficult area we faced was the requirement of having one central system center that deployed in one domain, capable of managing and controlling the end user devices. We were using authentication based on certificates and it was difficult to do the work based on certificates from different domains. I would like to see a simplification of the implementation and integration in the case of multi-tenant environments.
The solution's dashboard needs improvement. Management and corrective action capabilities are needed as part of the solution. The solution would benefit from having a mobile app. Improvement of the application layer monitoring as part of the default solution due to methods of applications integrations.
As we are not using the latest version, it is difficult for me to say what needs to be improved, because it may have already been improved in the latest versions. Also, we are only using 30% of the capabilities of this solution. We are limited on our side rather than the tool side. There are many features available that we have not yet explored. This is a solution that supports many add ons, so we can run Unix, for example. I can explore it like a database but it's inconvenient. We have, on occasion, experienced some crashes that have caused the application to break down. It could be an issue on our side, but we have not had the time to explore it. They should have some customized solutions or internal development, then maybe it could be easier to use different solutions or some self-developed solution. The only other thing is a better web interface. The current one is not good enough, in our version it's an installed application.
