What is most valuable?

The ability to analyze is probably the most valuable feature. We also have system-wide visibility. And you have a unified operational health watch, I think those are pretty key. I think the biggest is with CloudWatch. It's part of the AWS interface, so again, it's all baked in. You don't have to… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Ultimately it gives you enterprise visibility that you don't typically have. If you don't have this or a competing product you would not have this visibility. And that allows you to take care of issues faster, and take care of issues on the fly, as opposed to having to go run reports, have engineers… more»

What needs improvement?

I think the machine learning aspect of it probably does help because machine learning is not really machine learning. That needs some help. Better reporting is always something needed. That could be an answer to just about anything. But you always want better reporting, better dashboards, things… more»

What other advice do I have?

It's a good product. It does what it says it's going to do. In the beginning, you've got to really focus on your optimization, and have somebody who understands it from the beginning. That was a part of the implementation, to be able to do the maintenance and be effective at it. I would rate it an… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution works well as part of an overall Amazon ecosystem. The solution is easy to set up. The solution gives us very good real-time data.

How has it helped my organization?

We are able to, on a real-time basis, understand the capacity utilization and the latency aspects, and, to that extent, we can now know the productivity of the tests and… more»

What needs improvement?

The drill-down aspect on the dashboard of the solution needs improvement. We get a very good high-level overview, but when we drill down, it becomes a little less clear… more»

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

We have monthly licensing costs. The licenses are probably in the vicinity of about $300 - $350/month. There are no other costs or hidden fees beyond the licensing.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't previously use a different solution. We've only ever used Amazon.

What other advice do I have?

We're not using the latest version of the solution. We might be using the latest version minus one. I would advise other users that they need to understand the solution… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't evaluate any other solutions. This is because this was the product that was native to Amazon and so this, we knew, would suit us. There was no need for us to… more»

What is most valuable?

The permanent marking is something we really appreciate in the solution. The solution offers very detailed metrics for their services.

What needs improvement?

I haven't really thought about how the solution could be improved and I'm not sure what features are lacking. The solution should adjust its pricing. We tend to find the costs for using it are a little high. Right now, in relation to… more»

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

The solution is a bit pricey. The solution requires you to pay for technical support, which is tiered, and certain options are quite expensive.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Before using this solution, we had our own on-premises access.

What other advice do I have?

I don't check the version we use, so I'm unsure if we're using the latest one or not. Since it's a cloud application, I assume it's always the most up-to-date option. Since Cloudwatch isn't a free service, I'd advise other organizations to… more»
