AppDynamics Review

The solution makes it easy for us to keep our applications stable

What is our primary use case?

We use it for break fail detection.

How has it helped my organization?

AppDynamics makes it much easier for us to detect problems or issues before they become problems. We have alerting on all of our business transactions. Therefore, it makes it very easy for us to keep our applications stable.

What is most valuable?

The drill down feature is the most useful.

What needs improvement?

The UI could use a little help.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Our AppDynamics application tracks a large number of business transactions and is able to keep up with our demands.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Our environment scales from several hundred nodes to thousands of nodes per day, so the scalability of AppDynamics with our environment works perfectly.

How are customer service and technical support?

We contact technical support regularly. We have a dedicated rep who works with us. It is very good support.

How was the initial setup?

Integration with AWS is a time consuming process. You cannot just plug it in and point it at your workloads. You have to go though all of your work spaces to determine what you want to monitor and how you want to monitor it. However, part of the onboarding process is that they provide you with a dedicated resource.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Our purchasing experience through the AWS Marketplace has been pretty painless.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also considered Dynatrace. We chose AppDynamics because of its feature set.

What other advice do I have?

I would highly recommend it.
