We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Systems Manager has a feature where it analyzes the logs and gives us a performance overview in the form of a graph. We know when it's taking up more resources and when there are spikes, so we can predict the usability."

More AWS Systems Manager Pros →

"Technical support has been good.""I like the integration with other tools.""Patch management is, for sure, most valuable. For license management and patch management, I would rate it a 10 out of 10.""The 'remote execution' feature further helps manage systems on a consistent basis.""You don't need to depend on any third party. It's a complete solution for patch and configuration management when integrated with the existing system."

Cons
"We formerly used third-party products to analyze the log, give us information, and find bottlenecks. Systems Manager could provide more tools that conduct this analysis, so we don't have to do it ourselves."

More AWS Systems Manager Cons →

"I would like the direct integration with insights to be re-established.""It should basically include a complete slew of system management and monitoring tools such as Nagios. It should be a single pane of glass that gives us a complete solution. It is a good solution, but it is missing a few important things. We're using Capsule for DMVs on other secured zones. Capsule is a part of Satellite to be a proxy of sorts.""There needs to be some margin for improvement in terms of the way Satellite manages subscriptions. It is still very confusing when we have different contracts or different bundles of subscriptions, and we need to manage those within Satellite in a way that's very user-friendly.""I would like to see the scalability, user interface, and reporting features improved and for the solution to be simplified. Instead of having complex engineering, it should be simple for the user.""Automation can always be improved and refined to continue to make it better."
