Pros: The MSM software has three major advantages: (a) the OU (Organizational Unit), which represents an organizational hierarchy, and (b) the CI (configuration item), which represents an hierarchy of configurable items (many possibilities). Both give you the power of object oriented structures, which can be configured in many ways. The third advantage is that the CMDB (configuration management database) structure is very versatile and not ony related to typical IT type solutions, such as a defect of a printer, as with most of the incident management products on the market.

Cons: Many possibilities, and therefore a little longer learning curve, but the extra possibilities definitely give an added value to the product.

Overall: We use MSM as an incident management software tool for managing more than 2000 customers in the Benelux territory. Basically this means that we have not just one IT structure to manage, but 2000 IT-type structures to manage for more than 20 software products per customer. And the type of problems are much more complex than just a printer defect. The average problem resolution may go from 1 day to several months of follow-up.

It is a tool with all service management needs for your IT / Non-IT organisation.

Pros: Easy to use - web based - database programmed - light in term of performance.

Cons: new development procedure is quite done with delays as it needs to be confirmed on base company after lots of analysis.

Overall: It's about 3 years I am playing the role of administrator for MSM and I have gone through lots of customer requirements and I could found at least one solution with this ITSM tool. I can see it is getting better and better. It is surely an iso 20000 compatible application and can meet all requirements if you are planning to get the certificate for your company.

Recommendations to other buyers: All in all, I see this application strong enough to support any customer needs if these needs are based on ITIL/ISO 20000.

Pros: I have previously used this tool in a large organisation (Government, 10,000+ employees) for service desk/service management. It is customisable but key features you need are available out of the box. Has a simple web front end for most users with complex reporting for admins.

Cons: If investing in this tool, invest in training or a consultant to support you getting going. From there is is possible to manage this yourself.

Overall: ITSM, ISO 9000 support
