Hello peers,

I am working as an IT member at a research company with 200 employees (at most).

I am looking at the pros and cons of SCCM and BigFix software. 

At the moment, we are using BigFix just for updating and I think if we switch to SCCM that would be a more complicated and costly solution because of my company's infrastructure and requirements.

What is your professional recommendation for me? Is SCCM going to bring unnecessary workload for a small company, such as mine? Also, is it worth choosing SCCM over BigFix based on its features, budget, etc?

Thank you!
