What is most valuable?

If you talk about the Application Analytics, we have different systems, all kinds of integrations from the application space, I have so many systems to integrate. For business transactions, I have more than 20-25 systems. Without getting these analytics, where there are bottlenecks in the system… more»

What needs improvement?

In the Business iQ, I don't know how much they’re trying to grab it, but we want to see more of the transaction, each and every area, from the users’ perspective to the end of the transaction, from the user to the network. There could be situations where the user is sitting in some other region… more»

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

We were previously using a different technology.

What other advice do I have?

I definitely would recommend AppDynamics. After looking at the snapshots, I think I see we're using less than 5-10% of what AppDynamics is capable of. I would definitely recommend exploring not just the analytics and the Business iQ, but I would also encourage you to show the network stats on the… more»

What is most valuable?

We are more on end-user monitoring, so it helps us to find out each and every page, do the analytics on the pages, the user experience; correlate that information with the real-time experience of the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We just started using it, so we are just trying to find out where the problems are, and we're trying to fix them, even before the user complains. We just started using this product in the last six… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see improvements with the dashboards. Dashboards and reports is where we see a lot of lag. If that can be improved, it would be good. The expectation from our side is mostly with the… more»

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

We were previously using a few software tools. We are in process of consolidating the applications into one enterprise tool, inside of having multiple tools doing individual jobs. We want to have one… more»

What other advice do I have?

Go through the AppDynamics docs first, before you start implementing. The documents are good, and you have good videos. It has step-by-step instructions, and it is straightforward. Go out and do it… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at New Relic Insights. It wasn’t our decision to choose AppDynamics. We just gave our feedback on the tools to management and they made the decision, whichever was the cost-effective… more»

What is most valuable?

The main thing is that you can use the tool to visually see the transactions happening; figure out the bottlenecks quickly; and the ability to drill down from a high level and go down to the details and figure out where bottlenecks are.

How has it helped my organization?

Our architecture is very complicated. We're an e-commerce company, so we have a lot of integrations, a lot of server types, all kinds of server types. What AppDynamics lets you do is see all of it at a high level and then drill down to each node and figure out if we have a real problem.

What needs improvement?

If you want to complete the picture of monitoring applications, I think AppDynamics should invest more in client-side monitoring. That includes having smart plugins to figure out if you have issues, and JavaScript running, and things like that. For example, companies like Bugsnag complete the… more»

What other advice do I have?

The first thing is you need to identify where the main issue is: do you need end-user monitoring or do you need more of an infrastructure monitoring tool. Then figure out where to place it and how to connect it to everything. In general, when I’m looking to work with a vendor, the most important… more»

What is most valuable?

AppDynamics has over six products and most of them install pretty easily, with the application agent installation and configuration being the easiest. AppDynamics includes a service application map of the call load, response, environment health index, and transactions that are dynamically rated on one easy-to-use page. Each page has visual clues that make debugging easy. AppDynamics automatically… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We are currently rolling the tool out to the whole organization, so more to come here....

What needs improvement?

Support is off-shore and somewhat slow. The EULA does not contain strong language for support. That being said, the support has not been a problem to date. The licensing model is difficult to use and can be expensive. Our technology landscape is very broad, so understanding the pricing model by agent can only be done after a deep dive into matching agents to types of technologies. That being said… more»
