What is your experience regarding pricing and costs for SCOM?


Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

Please share what you can so you can help your peers.

Our Enterprise Agreement includes the price. All of the Systems Center products have a backup, which we don't use, but SCCM is included in the pricing. As a result, we can afford it because we have the Enterprise agreement.

In terms of pricing, I'm not sure how much the company pays. As far as I know, our company gets a Microsoft package and SCOM is already included in the package. It's not separated out.

We have an EA with Microsoft, and it comes as part of the EA.

We have to pay for a license and the price is fine for us.

The pricing is good, and it's part of their system center suite. I believe we pay for the license on a yearly basis.

SCOM is part of the System Center suite and I am satisfied with the pricing. The entire suite is expensive but it comes with a lot of functionality.

If you compare the pricing of SCOM to some solutions now available — like ManageEngine — I think it is a bit more expensive. But at that price, you get more in Microsoft System Center. SCOM is a bundled product, it is not only SCOM. You get a complete suite of Microsoft System Center products. There are five products in the bundle. There are no additional costs for SCOM itself and everything is included in the license. The only additional costs that you may have is in getting management packs. On the other hand, open-source solutions are available that are mature or maturing and they are very good. They may pose a better solution because they are free.

If you have a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement, then this is part of the agreement.

Our licensing fees are approximately $30 per user, per month.
