Overall Satisfaction with System Center Operations Manager

We are using Microsoft Systems Center Operations Manager in our organization mainly for event management and monitoring. It is used for all the server infrastructure and services.
  • Alerts.
  • Integrates nicely with other Microsoft products.
  • Some functions take time to process.
  • Pricey for small business platforms.
  • Lower cost.
  • Agentless.
  • SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor
It is an excellent product for monitoring features like Exchange, Active Directory, DNS. Monitors are custom designed and can be adjusted to any system. Great monitors can be created even when monitoring open-source systems.
The support its good and they help you and are responsive and very fast!
