What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are customer management and user experience management.

What needs improvement?

The solution could improve the server size for AppDynamics to include middleware products, which it doesn't yet cover. If they add middleware for sophisticated sites, AppDynamics would be the global choice.

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

Pricing isn't bad, in comparison to Dynatrace, which is much more expensive.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend the solution strongly for those with medium-sized businesses. It's not for enterprise solutions or enterprise businesses. It's a great solution for the non-enterprise client. I would rate this solution eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspect of the solution is the ability to discover and track transactions.

What needs improvement?

We also use Oracle Fusion and the actual tracing of your transactions on Oracle Fusion is difficult because they use an asynchronous type of tracking between the nodes. It makes it difficult for AppDynamics to track. The user access… more»

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

The pricing is very good. You get good value, especially if you compare it to DynaTrace.

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

We previously used DynaTrace, but we switched to AppDynamics because the pricing was much more reasonable. DynaTrace was also not easy to implement. We needed someone who knew about how to code it.

What other advice do I have?

We currently use the on-premises deployment model but we are in the process of moving over to the cloud. The solution is a good tool. I'd advise others to use the cloud deployment model so that you don't need to worry so much about having… more»

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

The setup cost, pricing and licensing is different for every customer depending on how big they are and how many servers they are putting the product on. So I can not give a direct answer to that… more»

What other advice do I have?

As advice to people considering the solution, I would tell them to scope it out really well and to do a lot of research on their intended application and their business use cases. There may be… more»
