Low cost solution with multiple features in one place
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable features of the solution are patch management and software license management."
  • "BMC Client Management supports only iOS devices. It would be good if they would support Android as well."

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of the solution is to deploy the software through plan management. It's used for patch management and software deployment.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of the solution are patch management and software license management. They audit because of the concerns with the software license. They might have to pay a fine to the respective organization. That's why software license management and patch management are widely used.

What needs improvement?

The solution could be improved with additional support. They have support for patching for Windows only. If they provide support for Linux patching as well, it would be good because many customers have Linux systems as well. In that case, it is quite difficult to patch those systems.

Also, additional support for mobile development, MDM. BMC Client Management supports only iOS devices. It would be good if they would support Android as well. Most of our organization is not using iOS, so the feature would not be used for most of the organization.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with BMC Client Management for over six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The are no issues with the stability of the solution; it's been good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of the solution has been good enough.

Currently I'm working on BMC Client Management and there is a scope for BCM. Since BMC has provided this solution on cloud, now customers are preferring the solution.

How are customer service and support?

I've had to work with the technical support, and it has been good.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. No complications. We can have single master server. It is really straightforward. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Our license cost is very low.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

There are multiple solutions we have compared, and BCM is low cost plus they have multiple features.

What other advice do I have?

The solution provides multiple features in one place. They should provide features for other OS platforms, too. That is the only limitation we can see.

I have seen customers facing issues with client devices where most of the people who have access locally can install anything without any permission. Plus there are situations where some devices have been stolen by employees or anyone else. In that situation, it would be good if you can implement BMC Client Management end to end. Then you'll get relief from those painful areas.

I would rate the solution a nine out of ten.
