What is most valuable?

I find that the new dynamic alerting is a pretty good feature now. It bought the product up to date. Response times for alerts are much better than they were. Also running event searches within Azure Monitor. They're quite handy features and I find them all valuable.

What needs improvement?

I'm quite involved in the automation of dynamic alerts so I really can provide some insight into how that can be improved. They did have an alerts feature before and it was quite well automated, but since they've gone to a dynamic model and did a few updates, it broke a few things. Some commands that were used before no longer work. But some things that could be improved are: * Feedback should… more»

What other advice do I have?

I have been using this product almost since it was first released. It changed in the last two or three years to be officially launched. I think the initial release of Monitor came out about four years ago and has improved a bit. So on a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Azure Monitor further up there than I would have before. It is eight now. It is… more»

What is most valuable?

I am impressed by the reporting on the average eight ports that we get from this solution.

What needs improvement?

They need to work on a more hybrid deployment that will allow us to monitor local on-premise deployments and connect to different systems. I would like to see more integration. In the next version, I would like to see more mobile applications. The current support is based on email so customers don't… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others would be to do design planning. I believe there is room for improvement, especially when it comes to mobile applications. That is why my rating is eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Azure offers more intelligence than other solutions. Other solutions mainly focus on the network with hardware, but Azure is more open to other platforms.

What is most valuable?

The solution integrates well with the Microsoft platform.

What needs improvement?

In comparison to New Relic, which I've used before, it's a bit more complicated. It's not as easy to use. It also took some time to get it working. The implementation needs to be simpler.

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

We previously used New Relic. Azure Monitor does a better job of integrating with Microsoft, which is one of its main selling points.

What other advice do I have?

Currently, we are using all deployment models: public cloud, private, hybrid, and on-premises. Since we already have Azure, they deliver the monitoring solution as part of our environment. Azure is more integrated into the infrastructure than New Relic was. You can use infrastructure components… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it ensures our servers are up.

What needs improvement?

When something goes down, we want the option to have automation in place to get it back up again as quickly as possible. It is not very user-friendly so the GUI can be improved.

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

We have used other monitoring tools and one of the advantages of Azure Monitor is that it is easier for us to use because we're mainly a Microsoft shop.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this tool is to take your time with it and see if it is the right one for you. If it is, then get rid of all of the other tools. This is a good product but it is not very user-friendly at this stage. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The solution offers excellent security features. The product provides us with useful alerts that makes recommendations about the security and the platform. The solution works well overall. It's easy to implement and simple to use.

What needs improvement?

I'd like the solution to do more around vulnerability assessment. It's lacking in the product right now.

What other advice do I have?

We're using the latest version of the solution. I'm not sure of the exact version number. Basically, it's a service. I'm a partner of Microsoft. I'm using this solution for monitoring for my customers. I believe it's a good product for me, to monitor all the services across many clients. The businesses I assist are all small or medium-sized companies. I would recommend the solution. Any company… more»

What do you think of Azure Monitor?

What is our primary use case?

We are doing the Azure cloud transformation by moving to link up the application to the cloud. Monitoring is one part of application's transformation. I only work with the cloud-based model. 

What needs improvement?

They can simplify the overall complexity since you have multiple data sources in the cloud for monitoring. It's quite simple, but there are so many portals. It takes time to work with it. If they could simplify the user configuration, that would be good. The integration capabilities could use some improvements.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the product for approximately seven years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The product is stable.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it's stable. It hasn't crossed any thresholds.

What needs improvement?

The troubleshooting logs need improvement. There should be some improvement there. I have a hard time finding the right logs at the right times whenever there is an issue occurring. They should simplify the logs.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Azure Monitor an eight out of ten. In order to make it a perfect ten, the solution should be simplified. For a beginner, it's kind of complex. It should be made easier for beginners or newcomers. I would recommend this product. We get good results from Microsoft Azure, so that's why we stick with Microsoft Azure. I definitely recommend this product to all my colleagues or my friends… more»
