Broadcom DX Application Performance Management Review

It comes with a good user interface but lacks ease of configuration

What is most valuable?

The feature that I have found the most valuable is its user interface.

What needs improvement?

They can make it easier to configure. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for about four months. We're doing a proof of concept. We've currently deployed it on-premises, but we've also been looking at a SaaS model.

How are customer service and technical support?

I didn't contact their technical support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was pretty straightforward. It took a couple of days to deploy.

What about the implementation team?

We have our own team for maintaining this solution.

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

Broadcom is a better and cheaper option from a financial perspective. It also depends on the DLP plug.

What other advice do I have?

You should look at the Broadcom DX version 11, which will be available from early 2021. It is a lot better than version 10.7. There are a lot of big upgrades in version 11.

There are not a lot of differences between AppDynamics and Broadcom DX Application Performance Management version 11. The user interface of AppDynamics is better, and the configuration for AppDynamics is a little bit more straightforward.

Broadcom offers a wider range and a bigger suite of applications. The APM module is just a part of it, whereas AppDynamics is a specialist at APM. AppDynamics is a better solution at the moment. You need to weigh the extra functionality you might get with AppDynamics and see if it is worth it. Dynatrace is also a better solution.

I would rate Broadcom DX Application Performance Management a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
