    Quest

    The KACE Management Appliance does many different things, but does not do them as well as other products. It is an all-in-one system for Asset tracking, software management, ticketing system, Contact management, and reporting. If you require basic functionality for these, then this product will meet your needs. But when you begin needing advanced/granular functions from the appliance, it will fall short.

    Tanium

    Tanium is well suited for organizations where enterprise infrastructure has great significance and needs to be properly managed as well as protected. Most organizations depend upon their infrastructure to sustain so Tanium can be a boon for them to sustain in this competitive market. However, Tanium is less appropriate for the traditional offices that don't have or have a less online presence.

    Cons

    Quest

    • Configuring automated software installs is difficult, and logs do not present useful information for troubleshooting.
    • Customer support will just refer you to search itninja.com when you call in for support issues.
    • KACE community site (itninja.com), has outdated documentation, and answers to questions are usually vague at best.
    • KACE Amp agent constantly breaks, and has to be re-installed on end user computers.
    • A parent-child relationship in the ticketing system requires you to create a process.
    • Remote provisioning fails consistently and does not provide any useful information as to why it failed.
    • K1000 is overpriced for the jobs it actually performs and the work that is required to maintain it.

    Tanium

    • One issue is its ring topology, as the data is stored in central hubs and pushed through its peer nodes. If the central hub fails, then the associated node will also result in failure.
    • Another problem is that all Tanium management is on premises requiring the customer to maintain it. If we want ask any help from Tanium support we always get a response like "you are maintaining it yourselves and it's your responsibility.
    • The Tanium User Interface could be improved a bit as, although the tool is rich in performance, a more impressive UI might really attract new customers.

        Quest

        DAM blows away what Free wear we were previous trying to tweak and change for use to benefit the County. But as we looked into DAM we saw much more available with this product compared to what we had been trying to use over the last 10 years. It took a lot of convincing to get County Administration on board with County IT but after we had Dell come in and demo software and appliand to BOS and County Administrator they saw the added benefits of going with DAM! It has been a great addition to our County IT tools!

        Tanium

        Tanium is always my first choice, so much excellent feedback online from genuine users, easy to use in any system environment, and value for money, so many good things about Tanium stacks up against all the other competitors in the market. Tanium is one of the most reliable and trusted risk and compliance management software.

        Return on Investment

        Quest

        • Asset Tracking works exceptionally well, until the AMP agent breaks an endpoint machine. Quick re-install of the AMP agent usually resolves the issue.
        • The remote provisioning tool fails 90% of the time. If this worked properly or informed us why the remote provisioning failed, this tool could become an invaluable asset.
        • We canceled the support contact because the renewal price was expensive and cost just as much as the initial purchase price.
