Creates dynamic situational awareness about changing conditions in the infrastructure. The ability to run distributed scans on the entire network frequently delivers pervasive visibility and control to help ensure that organizations quickly identify all IP-addressable devices - including network devices and peripherals such as printers, scanners, routers and switches in addition to computer endpoints - with minimal network impact.

Provides policy-based installation, closed-loop verification and the ability to manage software distribution across Windows, UNIX, Linux and Mac OS platforms from a single, unified point of control. The solution delivers high first-pass success rates with minimal impact on network performance.

Product Reviews
IBM Endpoint Manager for Lifecycle Management - license is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from We use it to automate Windows and on AIX boxes to automate patch installation and OS upgrades. Valuable Features:It eases automation. We have been using it to automate Windows. We are currently using it on our AIX boxes to deploy patches; basically, to automate patch installation and OS upgrades.Improvements to My Organization:It saves time and reduces human error. We are still experimenting with more of its features, such as how we can roll back some of the patches that we have already installed and so on. It definitely looks good.Room for Improvement:We use it on the AIX. I think it worked fine. I work on the AIX and we are still in the testing period, so it would be interesting to see, if there's an issue with it. But, the team that does most of the automation thinks that it should work fine. Because they didn't see any issues with Linux, they don't see any issues with the AIX either.Maybe, if they could provide a better GUI, it would be a nice thing to have.Stability Issues:Stability is good.Scalability Issues:We're using it on Windows and have used it on Linux. It worked well on Linux and now, we are actively moving to test it on the AIX.Previous Solutions:We were using HPE Server Automation, which we were formerly using to automate most of the Linux patching. We were using HPE SA for our automation. It automates but it doesn't have the feature as to where we can back out the patches that were pushed and BigFix offers that to us.In my opinion, trust and reputation are the most important criteria when selecting a vendor. IBM is known for that.Other Advice:Definitely, without any hesitation, I would recommend that you should implement and use it. Try it out!Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most valuable feature of this solution is its ease of use. Valuable Features:The most valuable feature of this solution is its ease of use.Improvements to My Organization:It improves the productivity of our organization, by helping the technical guys in our team.Room for Improvement:We would like to see more of the extended reporting feature. It would help the technical teams, so as to drill down into the reports further.Stability Issues:The stability is good.Scalability Issues:Scalability is also good.Other Advice:This solution is giving us the results that it's meant for.You should definitely take a look at it.The most important criteria while selecting a vendor are the reliability, cost and technical support.Disclaimer: I work for the vendor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enables us to handle data from other vendors with the scale for our servers. Valuable Features:For me, BigFix is my virtual operator, and the capabilities BigFix actually brings to our servers to do everything. I don't need a personal operator. I can reach out to our partners for the solution.Improvements to My Organization:BigFix enables us to handle data from many vendors with the scale for our servers, improving our performance.Room for Improvement:We are looking for better images for third-party operations like article databases, for example, other article application servers, and the SAP applications. We appreciate that BigFix can produce a better image for everything on a single product.Also, the web console could be improved as we need to use it more than the desktop console.Stability Issues:I believe the solution is very stable and we have never had an outage of the solution. Communication with our agents is always well-synchronized. Stability is very nice.Scalability Issues:It is scalable. We have, for example, 7000 servers communicating with only three or four structured servers on the BigFix environment and it responds very quickly for everything we do.Technical Support:We usually use the technical support for some troubleshooting when we have a specific problem with agents because in an environment with 7000 servers, we have a certain rate of problems which are specific problems, not general problems. Every time, the support attends to us quickly and the success factor is high.Other Advice:See if the solution has good capabilities for them and if the solution can communicate well. Integration with many vendors is necessary.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It helps maintain our environment, so all of our systems are patched and up to date. Valuable Features:I believe that the agent on the endpoint is very powerful. It can do a lot. It can patch, it can get information on the asset, and it's just a very powerful tool.Improvements to My Organization:It helps maintain our environment, so all of our systems are patched and up to date. It also helps provide security settings to the endpoints as well. We can also push out applications and different settings.Room for Improvement:They're actually adding some of the features that I wanted, such as detecting, which allows us to fix things remotely. If there's a security issue, we could actually stop the security issue in its tracks. I think they need to polish up a little bit, and it seems like IBM is now finally starting to invest money into the solution. I think that's going to help its brand name.Scalability Issues:The product is very scalable, but it can also be very complex. If you don't set things up right then you could have problems. You just need to know what you're doing.Technical Support:Technical support has sometimes been very good, and sometimes it's been not so good. It just depends. I would say that in tier one sometimes they know, sometimes they don't, but then once you go up to tier two or tier three they're definitely experts in their field.Previous Solutions:Previously we were using the Microsoft solution, Windows Software Update Services. That's a very all or none solution which is not as granular. Regarding BigFix, I like that I can push out updates to systems within their patch window and make sure that they're complete and done within that patch window.Initial Setup:The setup could be simple or it could be complex. It depends on your environment.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
