What is most valuable?

The performance features are most important ones. That would include reporting, you get reports on your performance data. The next is the alerting feature. For example, my… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We got to know which modules of my application are used more by the customers, as well as which modules of my application are very slow. It has helped with my overall my… more»

What needs improvement?

If Dynatrace is capturing everything in your application, it has to "sense" that information, and that sensing needs sensors which we have to include in our applications… more»

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

The licensing for Dynatrace is high. If you want to go for monitoring solutions, then why Dynatrace? If you have a particular budget, you can go for many other monitoring… more»

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

Initially, we were using New Relic. But, after that we switched to Dynatrace because of the amount of functionality, the amount of troubleshooting it was giving us was… more»

What other advice do I have?

In terms of implementation, it's quite easy, now that there are many automation tools. So just integrate Dynatrace with the automation configuration tools. Just ask… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Initially we were using New Relic itself. Dynatrace was one thing that we were evaluating. ManagingEngine was a new one at that time from what I recall but, I'm not sure… more»

What is most valuable?

The alerts that it provides is one of the most common things that we use. As an example, when a service isn't performing how we anticipated it, either I receive an email or my support team receives an… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have been able to proactively identify failures before they happen. As an example of something in the last week, we had an instance where a volume was filling up on one of our VMs, so we set up a… more»

What needs improvement?

It is complicated, especially in how you interpret the data that it provides. For someone who works in it every day, I can figure out what I want. For the general, every day developer who uses it once… more»

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

Corporate handled the licensing and the purchasing of it, then they gave me a license key. However they configured it is how we use it.

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

We used to use AppDynamics, which is one of their big competitors. I don't exactly know why the switch. We were told to go to New Relic. I think a lot of it had to do with the cost. Possibly, they… more»

What other advice do I have?

If you are looking to evaluate New Relic, compared it to other products, it is very powerful in terms of what it can do. However, it is a complicated to interpret some of the data which is provided… more»

Vendor
Senior Support Manager at a software R&D company with 5,001-10,000 employees

What is most valuable?

I think that the product's ability to monitor the systems and applications are the most valuable features. We get alerts over email if there is an issue. We can also use it for our customer support incident and problem management. SiteScope can be integrated to have tickets created automatically… more»

What needs improvement?

We are evaluating AppDynamics as a potential solution. We want to understand how that compares to and may be better than SiteScope. So I don't know exactly at this time what can be improved, but that is why we are evaluating AppDynamics. We are taking the opportunity to compare the features in both… more»

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

We did not have a different solution previously, and at the time we adopted the product we thought that SiteScope was a complete solution. It is not bad, but in the last five years, we learned more about what we might want to see in the product and what is possible with this type of product. As this… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice to other people considering SiteScope as a solution in this category of tools is that I think SiteScope is a good product. It is definitely useful and provides a lot of value. I do not have any other advice in terms of being an end-user because all those things are not a perspective I have… more»

Solution Consultant at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
Jan 20 2020

What is most valuable?

The feature that I have found most valuable in ManageEngine Applications Manager is its dashboard.

What needs improvement?

The information provided by ManageEngine is not deep-dive like IBM and CA provide. For example, ManageEngine does show the data, but it's common data like response time and data like that. From the engine side, and from my perspective as a… more»

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

I have experience with CA, Dynatrace, and AppDynamics.

What other advice do I have?

Before I recommend ManageEngine to a customer, I first look at the company size and their application requirements. If the size of the company is small or medium, I will propose ManageEngine. Secondly, I examine the capability of the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I evaluated CA and IBM.
