PDQ is great to use. It speeds up my imaging process. I especially like being able to access the several ore built packages from the library, such as dot net framework 4.0

System Center Configuration manager is really very strong tool for installing software updates and application silently, for collecting all hardware and software inventory strongly, for installing Operating Systems effectively in your all environments.

The application settings (although rarely used) can be hard to find, and there is a bit of duplication of menu items. This has got better over time however and seems to be regularly improving.

I see other products like forescout that do the same thing, and are easier to manage.
