How has it helped my organization?

We have gained a lot from this solution because it helps us to check what is there in terms of exceptions, and so on. We were able to correct problems, which led to an increase in availability, time… more»

What needs improvement?

We are having a problem where one of our tenants has had issues with availability over the past two months. There is a lot of downtime for the SaaS tenant. Based on the user experience feedback that… more»

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

In terms of pricing, I feel that when you compare the benefits that we get to the price that we paid, it is reasonable.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We are working with an outsourcing company, and have used products from Micro Focus.

What other advice do I have?

We collect user experience feedback from many countries, all over the world. We have already recommended this product to some of our partners, and they have implemented it based on our advice. This is… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did a proof of concept with the AppDynamics and also with the Dynatrace. The feedback that we received from our users, and from the IT department, was that the AppDynamics interface was more… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution is great for database monitoring. You don't have to install an agent on the database. You just install the server to a database agent. It's a good product for some database administration if you don't want to install an agent on the database for security. AppDynamics does not install… more»

What needs improvement?

The solution should add some monitoring similar to Oracle monitoring tools for databases. Oracle has a lot of features to monitor SQL queries, and make some recommendations to resolve them. AppDynamics is just monitoring for delays and doesn't provide any recommendations. It's a deficiency.

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

Licensing for the solution is very complex. A different type of agent means a different type of license and subscription. Different languages, database types, and agents make a Dynamics license complex. They do offer great discounts when bundling other AppDynamics licenses. For example, if a… more»

What other advice do I have?

We use the private cloud deployment model. I would advise new users to not install AppDynamics for their database only. Just the database portion isn't dynamic enough without other portions of the AppDynamics suite. I would rate all database applications nine out of ten, but I would rate just the… more»

What is most valuable?

The ability to identify the top running queries has been extremely valuable for us.

What needs improvement?

The monitoring of different schemas within the database could be improved. They should split the dashboard into different schemas, instead of having one.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We weren't previously using a different solution.

What other advice do I have?

We used an on-premises version of the solution. I would rate the solution a seven out of ten. Technical support hasn't been too impressive so we ended up having to resolve our own issues. There are also a few challenges that we've had from a performance perspective when we upgraded from one version… more»

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.
