I couldn’t agree more. The benefits and lead BigFix had are certainly being eroded away.
It was a sad day when I heard IBM was buying BigFix because this is exactly what I figured would happen. It’s wasn’t a surprise when a huge software company like IBM buys a small nible company like BigFix and things slow down or some cases just simply get worse. We have already been impacted by two programing bugs since IBM has taken over!! Not to mention the licensing changes (err, price increases) that have gone through!
Ahhh the forums, I feel like we should have a moment of silence. To me it’s a HUGE oversight that you can’t search All (and only) BigFix content on the forums! I get SO many non-relevant results!
A tip, if you’re not already, use http://support.bigfix.com/ to search the forums. Works much better.
So to sum it up, incomplete Windows/MS patching solution, increased bugs, much less useful forums, slow prodcut response and all for more money!! The future does not look bright.
