Overall Satisfaction with BMC Client Management

We use BMC Client Management for computer imaging, patch management, asset management and software deployment. It allows us a high level of control over the patching process which is extremely important in a manufacturing environment. It is our go to system to automate all asset processes and has allowed us to reduce computer replacement time, speed software deployment and help with asset planning.


  • Easy to use
  • Easy to upgrade
  • Highly flexible without customization
  • Great community/support
  • Patch management provides the flexibility to deploy patches using a test to production methodology. It also allows us to customize restart actions which helps with compliance but eases disruption to the business.
  • Computer imaging and software deployment work together to improve speed to delivery.
  • Financial asset management is very useful providing all of the information we need to support our PC replacement process.


  • Reporting can be challenging
  • Advanced features like image deployment lack detailed documentation
  • Would like to see the addition of flexible field names, especially to financial asset management.
  • BMC Client Management has improved our speed to delivery, quality of service and security by providing the necessary automation tools to improve our processes.
Well suited for medium to large business that are looking to manage assets, deploy software automatically and need a high level of control over patching. Less appropriate for smaller businesses where fewer computers can be easily managed by hand or with freely available tools.
