System Center Configuration Manager

Easy implementation, but high license costs from SCCM 2007

Worked with Microsoft PFEs to design the SCCM hierarchy and they were very helpful with that process. Given previous experience with the product the implementation was very straight forward from there

System Center Configuration Manager

Improved management and monitoring of all our endpoints.

SCCM allowed us to improve our management of workstation\laptops and also expedited our ability to deliver software packages security updates to all of our internal and external devices. The external distribution point that we installed in Azure has improved our ability to manage external devices that never connect to our internal domain.

SCCM Integrates well into our Microsoft environment

They were expensive. We burned through our hours quickly and didnt get as much deployed with their help as we would have liked.

Good overall Systems Management Solution

SCCM has a lot of built-in functionality. We utilize it mainly for software/hardware inventory, asset management, monitoring endpoint protection, and software deployment. It has done a good job overall with providing of meeting these needs. Also, the built-in reports are a helpful addition to SCCM.

System Center Configuration Manager

Community support is very strong, listen to what they have to say.

In the deployment and development stage we did not contact Microsoft for any support. The entire architecture was developed and deployed based on prior product knowledge and community based support forums and guides.

Amazing software but takes time to implement

SCCM has helped us reduced the time and cost of gettings computers ready to go for our end users. Through SCCM we are able to deploy OS, software, and policies to computers with ease. It took a while (about 3-5months) to get it working to the point we have it now but it is definitely worth a shot. It is very easy for us to update the existing software packages and task sequences to adapt them to new software and operating systems that come.

Integration with OS is great, but vendor size is challenging.

The size of the vendor can be overwhelming to find the resources you need to get things done.

System Center Configuration Manager

Easy to use in Microsoft environment

While it doesn't have the depth for Compliance and Audit as BMC's Bladelogic Server Automation, however due to operational changes and in-house expertise, made a more cost efficient solution for the entire organization. Easy solution to ramp up quickly and fits well in an organization that is predominantly windows based. Plays well with existing Microsoft tools and makes it easier to get additional staff trained and ready to use for daily functions.

SCCM is a great product after the tricky initial setup and deployment.

Initial rollout was pretty tricky without assistance. Having a Microsoft Technical Staff on-site prevented additional deployment issues. SCCM works well in our environment. Packaging and deploying software is fairly simple and straight-forward as is scheduling deployments once you understand how the software works. Whether deploying .msi, .exe or pushing out registry keys, the software works great. The Reports are okay, but would be better if they offered more customization. Overall a great product.

System Center Configuration Manager

Our SCCM implementation was only limited by what we wanted it to accomplish for us.

We were given ample resources to choose from including training opportunities. The pre-existing relationship with the vendor helped with the deployment and allowed us to leverage the training opportunities in the process.
