What are the strengths of this product?
It's a fantastic inventory and deployment tool. It seems Symantec is pushing and working on updating it, but they already have some big issues to solve as PCAnywhere (it's rubbish), custom inventory information management.
What are the weaknesses of this product?
It's not a SAM Tool, so that's key. It also needs a faster interface, a rich client would be necessary for huge installations, IT Analytics update, asset management solution is to hard to work with.
What features would you add if you had the choice?
Altiris is not a SAM tool, so definitelly they should add a new SW catalog with metrics and analytic capability, new roles and scoping to Asset Management Solution.... I think they will need a new product development to cover Asset Management.
