BigFix

BigFix is well suited for patch review and deployment, but there are key features that can definitely be improved. An example is that if a specific patch is deployed, but a cumulative update that contains that patch is not deployed, the system still shows the patch as outstanding or not implemented.Another area for improvement is the customization of BigFix. The tool has many uses and can be extremely helpful, but the amount of knowledge required to customize the solution is significant and customized scripts or "fixlets" need to be created. If common things could be pre-packaged and provided to the customer community, it would allow for an easier deployment and use of the tool.

BMC Track-It!

Track-It! is great for a small-to-medium sized enterprise that has a fairly small IT department but needs far more control of tickets than just email and spreadsheets. It scales well enough as IT departments grow, adding techs is simple enough, as is changing the workflow.A large company would probably be better off with a different solution. The lack of easy customization, and the shortcomings it has in workflow templates (which would be a nightmare for project management) means it won't scale up that far.

BMC Track-It!

  • The software is simple to use. There doesn't seem to be a lot of bells and whistles which could be attractive to some users.
  • It includes email notifications where users are able to respond to an email and it updates the ticket.
  • The system gives you the ability to customize your view so that you only need to see that tickets that are relevant to you or your group.

Cons

BigFix

  • Reports that it does have could be fine-tuned and provide more percentages and charts for executives.
  • The ability to use agentless deployments would be nice.

BMC Track-It!

  • Configuration is convoluted in my opinion. Getting the email to flow how you'd like is difficult.
  • A lot of the configuration option names aren't very clear. It seems they use their own terminology for things I would have never guessed.
  • Support is lacking - asking them for help always results in them directing you to a KB article. Sometimes you just want hand holding.

While some support calls are quickly responded to, many times our engineers have been pointed to collaborative web sites such as Bigfix.me for solutions or the option of engaging professional services has been proposed. While this may seem like a good way to drive business, it is not seen as efficient a support process as could be provided to the customer base.

We have rarely needed to use Support for BMC Track-It!, but in the times that we did need to use it, they were excellent. The biggest issue is that after not paying for support for about three years, now that we NEED support, it is too expensive for us to receive. This is due to the way their support is billed. So long as you never drop support, then you should be fine.

Alternatives Considered

BigFix

We used Spiceworks in small scales. BigFix is more enterprise-ready and able to support a large environment like ours. It also offers functions that are not available in Spiceworks.

BMC Track-It!

Depending on your organization size, you have to be very particular with the ITSM that you choose. Track-It! does the work we need it to right now. However, we will soon need to use something like Jira in order to become a next-generation service desk.

Return on Investment

BigFix

  • We've been using BigFix for some time and it has helped us with vulnerability remediation.
  • It has reduced our risk level tremendously compared to just using WSUS.

BMC Track-It!

  • The biggest positive impact it had on ROI was that the software itself didn't require any expensive ongoing maintenance contracts since it was installed and managed by our organization.
  • The negative aspect of this is if there was a major problem with the software, then it would require contacting the vendor, at which point it could become expensive for a service call.
