MBAM / Microsoft Bitlocker Administration xx

Is MBAM an advantage in an organisation which has several thousand normal pc:s and now intends to start using about 150 Bitlockerencrypted  Microsoft Surface units? Or is MBAM not needed? Can/should they use something else to provision and manage the Bitlocker encrypted units?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You could use scripting all the way. Scripting to encrypt and audit, GPOs to enforce some options.
MBAM is not needed but can be useful, hard to recommend. I administer about 100 bitlocked devices and didn't feel the need (and I hate administrative overhead).
