Amazon CloudWatch Room for Improvement

Vice President at American Technology Consulting

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 that are just more dynamic and more accessible.

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. We have given this feedback to AWS as well and hope they will improve this in the future. It could also do a much better job of monitoring performance when core AWS services are not used.

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 monitoring services, there are too many services and too many metrics per service.

I understand that it's per service but some complex acronyms, etc., make it kind of hard to understand the solution sometimes.

The portability of the Datadog is much more flexible for us. The client does not need to have Amazon services for the entire life of the project, unfortunately. They can change. But for Amazon to move over to Google Cloud, for example, that it's very important for the client. They are not investing in a particular single cloud service.

The panel should be better. Datalog's is much more visual.

The configuration capabilities could be better. We've found it to be quite good on Datalog, for example. They should emulate that.
