An Incredibly Rich Feature Set Providing a lot of Value

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

I feel like the pricing could be restructured. It seems like the direction has been to add more relevancy for future users and grow the user base. I think the pricing puts off some companies who only have a more limited need. There is more opportunity out there.

Should open up more to community licensing for getting more product feedback from industry experts.

Pros

As a seasoned application packager, I have a lot of experience with Admin Studio. While MSI packaging is in somewhat of a decline other areas of application and end user management are growing in demand. Flexera have done a great job of adding new features with each release to provide more value for new and existing customers. When you avail of the entire product stack including Workflow Manager, AdminStudio server, SecOps products and licensing products you get a powerful engineering tool and general management product.

Cons

While InstallShield is industry leader, when buying it standalone it is quite expensive. It also adds quite a lot of tables to MSIs. Don't get me wrong, some provide a lot of value and make it worth it but it could be more efficient. My last exposure to Application Manager was a poor one. The database started to crawl when more than 50 apps were run through it.
