"Great out-of-the-box capability."
"One of the things that I like about DX Infrastructure is that the topology is good enough to see what is happening in the infrastructure. You also get alerts if something is happening in the network. There are many features and benefits. It is serving our customers in knowing exactly how their network is performing in terms of reliability. It also helps them in planning the capacity. They know how much bandwidth the branches are consuming."
"The solution is stable."
"The most valuable features are application deployment and task-sequenced imaging."
"The initial setup is fairly straightforward."
"We have found the scalability to be quite good."
"The ability to make collections and deploy to them has been great."
"We're a Microsoft-centric organization, so we are happy with the integration between products."
"The product is useful for patch management."
"It is easy to install, and quick to deploy."
"The only challenge that I have with this solution is the reporting part. The users are not really comfortable with the kind of reports they are getting. Sometimes, they want to see reports in their own format. Customizing those reports with Jasper is not very easy. It could be because of the knowledge gap. If you have the knowledge of how Jasper can be configured to suit customer requirements in terms of reporting, it is good. There was a time a customer complained about one issue related to Netflow analysis. Broadcom has a separate model for that, but the customer wanted everything bundled together. It could also have IP management so that I am able to see or analyze IPs so that the IPs that are already in use don't get assigned."
"The company has not kept pace with developments."
"It should provide the ability to remotely connect to mobile devices. There are some solutions that are doing that, but with Microsoft Intune, the only way to remotely connect to devices outside the organization and mobile devices is by using TeamViewer. It is pretty strange for a big company like Microsoft to not have something for that."
"The main room for improvement is the on-screen display. I think it would be good if some improvements were made."
"With Microsoft Premier Support, you get what you pay for. There's Third Tier Support that you pay for. If you pay for that, you get excellent support, and if you don't pay for that, then you get the less experienced staff."
"I currently need to increase my compliance level in the patching processes which this solution could improve on."
"The deployment process is lengthy and should be quicker to complete."
"The ability to integrate MDM would be great."
"Devices like smartphones and tablets are managed very well on VMware, however, they are absent in SCCM. I could configure iPad from the VMware site and it was done very easily. It should be just as possible on SCCM."
"One area of improvement is regarding the patching of Office 365 products. We have some difficulties on this side, and it can be improved."
