    Nexthink

    I've been managing desktops for 20+ years and Nexthink was the missing tool out of my toolbox. Just to give some perspective, if you were building and maintaining a house, Nexthink would be comparable to switching up from a hammer and nails and to full blown using a nailgun. Nexthink is a solution accelerator and a well thought out toolset to give you the customer experience at a glance. It allows for so much more visibility just with the default set of data points the Collector (agent) gathers, which is A LOT, and grants you the ability to gather even more data with remote actions. All of this evidence cuts how the "it could possibly be this" and "maybe it's that" discussions when you're troubleshooting an issue. It may not provide the exact answer all the time, but it gives you a "compass point" on where you need to start looking to resolve the issue. Also the service monitoring, activity monitoring, and critical event thresholds really empower the teams to know when a problem is happening and they can get ahead of it before the first call even reaches the Help Desk. Nexthink is a cornerstone tool in our environment for end user experience and I'm excited to see where the go next.

    SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

    A company that has already invested in the SolarWinds ecosystem can drive additional value by adding Server & Application Monitor. Installing and configuring the additional functionality of SAM can prove to be a very worthwhile investment in most situations. Templates for canned software make the setup quick and efficient. Companies that leverage multi-tiered/in-house applications or require precise details of performance across an entire stack will want to look at solutions from other vendors.

    Pros

    Nexthink

    • It allows for an IT department to be proactive with finding/solving issues before they happen
    • It allows for a company to have a great tool for engaging with end users using campaigns/surveys
    • It shows the full overall picture of a device/network connections when troubleshooting user issues.

    SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

    • Monitor Azure Cloud Severs- We use SolarWinds SAM to monitor Active Directory and DNS on Several DCs published on Azure Cloud.
    • Monitor Hyper V and VMware - SolarWinds SAM monitors applications on both Hyper V and VMware, while also monitoring the physical host machines.
    • It also helps us monitor Warranty expiration for physical servers.

    Cons

    Nexthink

    • The on-premise solution can be slow at times and resource-demanding even on newer laptops. (This isn't the case with the cloud offering.)
    • Some useful features are only available to cloud customers.
    • Library pack configuration could be made easier, often these packs require some customization and it's not always clear how to get them up and running after importing.
    Andy McDougall | TrustRadius Reviewer

    SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

    • The get the best out of it requires a decent amount of knowledge of the product. In saying that, you could absolutely get the basics up and running using their how-to's and built in wizards, and with continual use find your way around and customise it further to your environment to best serve your organisation/objectives.

    We are heavily invested in Solarwinds products for a reason. They are generally easy to setup and run with, requiring only some interfacing with support or help articles on rare occasions. They do what we bought them to do and we can't ask for more.

    SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor is quite easy to use and super versatile. It allows you to do just about anything you can through premade templates or through scripting. You can use an agent on the servers if you want to, or you can monitor through WMI or SNMP credentials. You can customize thresholds for alerting quickly, and you can configure alerts to be as complex or as simple as you want.

    The tool works and monitors items 24x7, it only requires maintenance a little more frequently due to security fixes in the Windows operating system.

    The graphical interface and the performance of the database leave a little to be desired, they could be better explored.Some functionality and screens do not work well depending on the browser used. The integrations never had any problems or caused crashes in other systems.

    I think there was only a couple times I had to open a support case for SAM and one time they got multiple engineers on the phone to get a better idea what I was trying to monitor and was able to point me in the best direction to monitor that system.

    Alternatives Considered

    Nexthink

    Nexthink had better integration and a better user interface. 1E did not have the engagement capability which is so critical to many of the actions we complete using Nexthink. Nexthink had better trending data capabilities. 1E did not capture and hold data the way Nexthink does so all data assumes you are able to pull information from all systems at any time. with remote systems it is unlikely you will capture all systems at the same time so it makes any actions less effective. this review was performed 4 years ago so 1E may have addressed some of these limitations but Nexthink has also grown and continues to add and improve on their industry-leading capabilities.

    SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

    Solarwinds Server & Application Monitor is a great comprehensive monitoring solution. It covers all aspects of monitoring your infrastructure via a modular approach. While other applications can be slightly better at asset management or monitoring one specific application or application suite, Solarwinds Server & Application Monitor does a great job across the board while being extremely flexible and customizable

    Return on Investment

    Nexthink

    • SCCM proactive remediation: Automatically resolving hundreds of SCCM issues per month
    • Hardware: Identification of over $5m cost avoidance by seeing a lack of usage for 128GB SSDs - no need to upgrade to 256GB... coupled with OneDrive migration packs in the Nexthink library this is valuable.

    SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor

    • Our business is not IT, but we make money with the services provided by IT. For this reason, if the IT infrastructure does not work, we will suffer.
    • We need to have systems working 24/7, but no one in IT needs to work at night.
