After learning best practices of the SEM it is fairly easy to use and manage. Just the initial configuration and revision process can take some time. After about a month of using the SEM, I was able to navigate through most aspects of it with no problems. It just takes some hands on practice to best utilize the SEM.

If you are familiar with SolarWinds then you can use this product it's as easy as that. If you have never used a SolarWinds product then it will take a minute to get how they do reports and make dashboards but that being said the tool is great and can make things very easy once you get a feel for how it works and get everything setup how you like it.
