More Puppet Enterprise Pros →

Cons
"The price is an area that should be addressed because the price is high."

More Operations Orchestration Cons →

"The solution has really complex code, you have to understand the Ruby language.

They should definitely include features for compliance, for both the Linux and Windows side of the devices, as well as for network devices. Compliance is something they need to work on."
