Not at all. Personally, I think SOLUS2 worked a treat and it still does at the schools that use it. Sure, it can't manage discover upgrades, but for SIMS and FMS, it works like a dream. Some clever CentraStage scripting means additional databases get upgraded too. Our upgrade record was 3 days for SIMS and FMS in 270 schools which included mopping up of the odd failure.

It's possible, assuming you could get them all to agree to let you upgrade them at once - not many LA you could get that many schools to agree!! CentraStage is a powerful tool, pretty much possible with that - Windows InTune is Microsoft attempt at entering that market. CentraStage has the advantage that it's older and therefore more mature, it's also a premium tool, you pay for it, unlike SOLUS3 which has to fight for resources - let's face it, Capita would rather change the icons, fonts then actually do anything useful like fixing the bugs.
From my point of view, I started out using SOLUS2 and we had some really weird issues and it took at months to roll out an update, when I left it was days with SOLUS3 - even with re-releases!! From a coding point of view, S2 was good for the time, but it's been abandoned and unloved for too long.
