AppDynamics Review

Without any prior knowledge of the application structure, we use it to identify the root cause of performance issues.

Improvements to My Organization

In a few clicks, we are able to identify the root cause of performance issues, without any prior knowledge of the application structure nor its components. And this was true for both Java and .NET.

Valuable Features

  • Flowmap
  • Snapshots
  • End-user monitoring (web and mobile)

Room for Improvement

  • Analytics
  • SQL statement monitoring

Stability Issues

I have not encountered any stability issues so far.

Scalability Issues

I have not encountered any scalability issues so far.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Technical support is excellent.

Previous Solutions

We used to use CA APM. We found AppDynamics much more user friendly, easy to spot performance issues, and great unified end-to-end monitoring capabilities.

Initial Setup

Initial setup was easy and straightforward.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

The product’s licencing policy is competitive. However, properly identify and size your needs to get the best rate.

Other Solutions Considered

We also evaluated CA APM, Dynatrace and New Relic.

Other Advice

Properly identify your needs, and allocate the required resources. Otherwise, you might face some scalability issues.
