Best alternatives to SCCM

Morning all,

I'm currently looking for the best alternatative to SCCM, could you please link me the software that you use instead of SCCM. I want a single solution that will do a minimum of 90% of what SCCM can do.

"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.
