  • End to end workstation imaging with a 45 minute average for OS, drivers and base software with only 1 technician touch to name the workstation.
  • Application usage reporting on what software is being used and how much - broken down by site, department and user.
  • 5% of managed workstations were patched.
  • IT lifecycle reports were automated with live inventory feeds to enable purchase reports.
  • Product is complex due to its ability to be customized - Requires a knowledgeable Sys admin to manage.
  • Serious questions on how much Symantec is going to support product development going forward. Microsoft keeps pushing SCCM is free and that is a hard siren for VP's to resist - even it if its wrong.
I would recommend Symantec ITSM to any company over 250 endpoints seeking to effectively manage their endpoints with a customizable tool. The ability to manage your workstations end to end using imaging tools, software deployment, inventory, workflow engine, reporting tools and end user support is awesome.
