More BMC Client Management Pros →

"Remote management is most valuable. It allows you to manage multiple types of devices. It is not just limited to laptops or desktops. You can also manage IoT devices. If a device is lost or stolen, you can easily take control of the device without letting any information get leaked.""It is like any other mobile solution. It gives us the ability to control remotely, and that is what we like. We can wipe out and deploy remotely.""It's a tool that can be managed in various departments.""It has all of the features that we need to use and that we want to use.""The initial setup is easy and the deployment doesn't take too long.""The remote management and location capabilities are good.""The performance is good, and it is easy to configure.""The solution has very good documentation."

Cons
"BMC Client Management supports only iOS devices. It would be good if they would support Android as well."

More BMC Client Management Cons →

"They need a more flexible pricing model.""Pricing is the only challenge right now. The licensing fee should be simplified a little bit. They have kept too many products as add ons. These need to be bundled with the low-cost, standard version. This will help customers in adopting this technology at a faster pace.""Technical support needs to be more responsive to our requests.""They do have a good integration, but there is a long way to go as far as integration is concerned. They need to integrate with the cloud solutions a little bit more. We are looking for Azure integration.""VMware Workspace ONE platform offers support for Mac Books and we see that there is some room for improvement in that area versus all the products out there.""Feature-wise, it is fine, but its pricing could be better, given that Microsoft is on a bundling spree. AirWatch would benefit from reducing the license pricing per user per month.""I would like to see improvements made to both the support, and the pricing.""I would like to see some integration with native Microsoft products such as Anti-value."
