Working with Microsoft is always a pleasure as they are the experts and we rely on them to provide support for their services. Any issues that have arose with the service have always been immediately addressed. Every engineer I have worked with so far has been professional and dedicated to resolving my issue.
Keep the environment as flat as possible. Use additional primaries and secondaries only when the number of users allows no other choice. Replication between sites is just another thing that has to be monitored
It is really hard to come up with something I dislike about this product. The application revision for CI's can reek havoc on software distribution to distribution points.
I would collocate the DB on the Primary for
At the time of implementation we went with Secondary Sites as it was the logical thing to do with the high numbers of users in certain areas. Unfortunately you can only have one MP for Secondary Site which has reduced High Availibility for those sites

Overall it is a solid and powerful product. It is offers a wide variety of tools to your systems enviroment.
Develop a strong requirements document and project plan.
The tool is very powerful when it comes to Microsoft product support. It is secure and reliable.
Lack of native support for non-Microsoft products.
My wish would be Microsoft expand the support of the product to a larger OS enviroments. I wish the product was not so heavily reliant on Microsoft Active Directory.
Given more time and resources, we would do a wider evaluation of products. We were given a short window and chose the product based on in house expertise and knowledge.

Microsoft has been around for many years. customer service is unparralled and we recieved all the help we needed while implementing the new software.
Plan the infrastucture ahead and know what you want out of the software.
Its ease of use and functionality.
Lots of data, can be sluggish on older hardware.
Nothing at all.
Possibly wating a bit longer for al bugs to be worked out.

Relatively simple implementation of a complex product. We're currently only using some aspects of SCCM whilst continuing to transition from other 3rd party solutions. I've been frustrated by the lack of flexibility and granularity in application detection compared to other products.
Lots of technical information available online.

Installation and upgrade experience was relatively simple and worked as expected.

It is an outstanding product with more potential than we have the resources to deploy. We are using it for all of our patch management and software distribution, but would like to mature to operating system deployment and asset management, as well as software metering to help control licensing costs.
Train employees well before implementing.
Price and capabilities.
Configuration can be painful.

Improve our business / support model. Provide SLA. Add service catalog. Increase customer engagement.
Time -- it takes time to implement and refine the process.
automate a lot of our support process.
Not easy to use and not forgiving. Limit to Windows platform. Not Mac user friendly.
We will still pick SCCM but will seek other department/group to involve at the planning stage.
We are not using all of its capability yet.

Wanted to replace LanDesk. We have 80 branch sites. We needed a distributed environment to push software and patches. SCCM is large and requires constant attention, but works well.
Your SCCM admin should also be a guru in packaging up software installers.
Works, it's stable.
So powerful that it takes time to learn, manage, and configure.
They we're pretty much hands off, we used a partner.
Don't expect for too many features to be deployed immediately, it takes a lot of time. We're still working on imaging.
We're happy with SCCM.

Good experience overall.
Have a plan in place.
It just works and the reporting is much improved.
Cumbersome to setup initially.
Work closer to integrate with Desktop Service ahead of time.
