Hardware and software monitoring

What do you like best?

It is a very broad product, where you can configure it to suit your needs, in my specific case it is used to monitor hardware and software implementation of virtual machines in CITRIX. However as mentioned, it is one of Microsoft's bets in management and is divided into many other options.

What do you dislike?

I use it according to programming by the engineer who designed the product's visualization, I do not install it, I'm just a user of the tool for a specific purpose. The access that I have, the data that I obtain, are precise, for the system that I require. I do not see cons in this software at the moment. APM.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very broad tool with many options. No doubt you will find the right use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are monitoring a central system of virtual machines in CITRIX, obtaining in real time the data of the servers, services and equipment of final clients.

MSC Honest Review

What do you like best?

It is more reliable and robust as compared to the current toolset we use. Logging from the tool gives a clear idea of the issue when they arise. Its a Microsoft product and we are largely a Windows environment so we expect to see very few compatibility issues. It is easier to find troubleshooting information on technology forums due to the large user base. The email system is by far the most useful of the Microsoft System Center. It's easy to link calendars, send emails, set signatures, set out of office notifications and more. All businesses should have this feature.

What do you dislike?

The tools are very comprehensive and deliver as promised, but lacks better integration with cloud environments, which Microsoft is addressing by building new services as silos alongside the traditional System Center. I personally don't like this for hybrid deployments, and they need to polish those tools to be part of SC. There isn't much to dislike yet because we just rolled it out not to long ago. If at anything, it would be very small dislikes such as set of commands for hosts within SCCM.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Takes time to learn but is useful once you do.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

OS Deployments, application deployment, patching, AV. Communication and scheduling. I find the scheduling assistant feature on the calendar very useful when scheduling meetings with a large group. Device Software management is always a problem but this makes it easier. It is an all purpose inventory tool ; Being Microsoft it integrates easily

What Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Excellent for patch/software distrobution

What do you like best?

Imaging, remote imaging, patch management, program management, remote desktop client built in, collection management.

What do you dislike?

We normally have to use right click tools addon's in order to more easily add workstations or groups to certain collections instead of taking more time to add them through a more in depth menu. So overall, may just needs a bit more simplicity in that aspect.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a rather large amount of assets you may very well look into this software, it has saved us so many headaches and made it much more easier to keep track of assets and verify if all of them are in compliance with our most current settings.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Imaging, remote imaging, patch management, program management, remote desktop client built in, collection management.

Great software

What do you like best?

So many things that this suite can do. The System Center Advisor makes it seamless and simple Sass service management. Its Configuration Manager contains patches for deployment as well as server management and configuration. I like how their Orchestrator and Service Manager works. The functionality seen this section contains tools that can easily be integrated for streaming workflow.

What do you dislike?

Configurations and deployments can be done easy. Thing is, operations and service know-how is required. If you're a professional working in IT, it'll take some time to get a complete grasp of its services and private cloud.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Finally being over and done when it comes to an on-premis data center's intricacies and costs. This was big problem when migrating business to a private space. While there's clearly a benefit in operations and services, they tend to come with financial and security risks. The System Center has a wide range of services and feastures that makes business processes manageable. Its automation level guarantees deployment in a single click.
