"Consultas para documentar"

What do you like best?

What do you dislike?

no puedo ver el software que tienen instalado cada uno de los equipos y los muchachos de sistemas han tenido problemas para configurarlo

Recommendations to others considering the product

Cuando esta bien configurado, obtienes un inventario automáticamente y cuando los de sistemas cambian los equipos o el sistema operativo, este lo actualiza, sin tener que mandar a realizar un inventario equipo por equipo. Pueden obtener reportes de aplicaciones instaladas en cada equipo y muchas funciones mas que yo no necesito. Pero se adapta a tu función o necesidad.

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

Actualizo anualmente los datos de los formularios con la el inventario que me muestra este sistema, ya que se actualiza solo, y no tengo que pedirle a nadie informacion.

"SCCM has given us the ability to manage our entire fleet with less people"

What do you like best?

We used other tools in the past, but the ability to configure and manage our fleet with SCCM has been awesome. It took some learning at first, but its constantly improving and with the addition of Intune has given us even more flexibility in managing a complex fleet.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve is high in some areas. The risks are high if you dont have a good understanding of SCCM. At times some of the changes come through quickly.

"Very good but can be slow"

What do you like best?

As mentioned in the title, it is a very good piece of software but it can be slow in taking effect for certain changes occasionally. There have also been times where it didn't have a feature that would be nice to have but it still has a lot of features to begin with.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that I have really ran across that I've disliked has been the occasional slowness and or crashing but that is very few and far between especially for all that it is managing

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

Installing software onto remote machines, deploying new machines, redeploying older machines, etc.

"Best choice for windows computers!"

What do you like best?

I like this option because it is made by Microsoft, for Microsoft. I feel this is better as they are most familiar with the code of windows.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that some of the features offered in configuration manager are delayed. For example, when I save a configuration, and apply it, it isn’t always as fast as smartdeploy/zenworks.

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

We solved several issues, however the biggest issue we squashed was the need to mass configure computers in the field. This saves time for us, opening up more time for other tasks.
