SAFe as a consequence of Scrum

Over the years we have worked with several software companies that use Scrum alongside Pulse. Recently SAFe has also appeared in some discussions with potential customers as an alternative to Pulse. I can now see the same problems in all these Scrum-companies. These are problems we have never encountered with Pulse. It has made me dig deeper and compile my own conclusions and opinions. What is happening in the companies that use Scrum and why has SAFe appeared on the scene?
