Previous Solutions

There was no previous solution in place.

Initial Setup

Initial setup is easy, but after that it needs a very complex tuning that is easier in other tools.

Implementation Team

We used both a vendor team and our in-house team. The level of expertise was very nice, but it was lower during the first implementation without CA's involvement.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

It is similar in pricing to its competitors.

Other Solutions Considered

  • Dynatrace
  • AppDynamics

Other Advice

Take a nice view of the metrics you are getting, and specifically instrument only all the methods you need.
