What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it shows and gives you an application propo-topology straight away so you see the relationships between the different nodes. The other thing is that you can really look inside the method and analyze… more »

What needs improvement?

I think what AppDynamics is doing is a good way forward. They are currently investing in situations and environments, where clients use exclusively IT. In the past, it was only possible to monitor Java applications, .net applications, and… more »

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

Cost is reasonable. They have developed a very solid and good methodology to find out if the use case is valid, meaning whether there is a return on investment. If you find a valid use case, like in tourism, in banking, insurance, or even… more »

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

DataDoc is a solution that we might have used but it's really suited to small companies. I would really say if you are an enterprise company, then AppDynamics is the product of choice, but if you are a small company, just starting a… more »

What needs improvement?

The user experience is quite confusing. There are too many different development stages. The UI is not very intuitive. The solution can be improved with more AI as well as more automatic warnings and updates.

What other advice do I have?

We used the on-premises version of the solution. I would rate the solution nine out of ten. Although we've decided against AppDynamics, I would still recommend the product.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did market research and looked at many different options. We found that this solution wasn't available for permanent installation, which was something that we required. In the end, we decided to go with Dynatrace, a competitor of AppDynamics. It has the same features and from what I have seen, it is a lot better in general.
