What is most valuable?

For me the service workflow and the dashboards are the most valuable features, simply because I can know what’s going on in my infrastructure within five minutes, versus two hours.

How has it helped my organization?

It increases productivity first of all, and it makes our troubleshooting efforts more efficient. We don’t do the war-room thing, I hate the war-room thing. A lot of the time, when there’s an issue… more»

What needs improvement?

Can it talk to me? But seriously, the additional feature I would like to see: I did like the old dashboards, the legacy 6.3 for example; the way we were able to do the dashboarding in the client. I… more»

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

AppDynamics, and I’ve also worked with New Relic and I’ve also worked with Wily, which was horrible. I used to work for the government and we used use CA Wily at the Pennsylvania Higher Education… more»

What other advice do I have?

In terms of AI, I love the base-lining Dynatrace provides us. It baselines the application over a seven-day period; we have it at the default of seven days. The artificial intelligence is so amazing… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I know they looked at AppDynamics, I know they looked at New Relic. There’s this new company called Datadog that they’ve been looking at. It’s nowhere near the functionality that Dynatrace offers.

What is most valuable?

Our clients like the nice dashboard where they can see the active monitoring and includes performance, CPU usage, memory usage, and files. Solarwinds has an open database that allows you to do serious… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The customer's requirements are met with SolarWinds. It helps with server monitoring and not only to monitor the physical servers, but it can also control the virtual environment. It has good… more»

What needs improvement?

When you implement SolarWinds on a larger scale my customers complain about the speed. It's slow. This is an issue that has been going on for a long time that hasn't been properly addressed by… more»

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

The licenses start from USD 3000.00 and go up to USD 20,000.00 for the year. It's a perpetual license. Nothing is free in SolarWinds, anything that you need is an additional cost. When you compare… more»

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

Previously we implemented the CA UIM solution, CA Spectrum, and Microsoft Monitoring. SolarWinds is much easier than any of them.

What other advice do I have?

Improvements come as we are moving forward. Requirements also change with time. There were times when we used to be a complete physical infrastructure. Most of the customers have now moved to a… more»

What is most valuable?

The feature that I have found most valuable in ManageEngine Applications Manager is its dashboard.

What needs improvement?

The information provided by ManageEngine is not deep-dive like IBM and CA provide. For example, ManageEngine does show the data, but it's common data like response time and data like that. From the engine side, and from my perspective as a… more»

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

I have experience with CA, Dynatrace, and AppDynamics.

What other advice do I have?

Before I recommend ManageEngine to a customer, I first look at the company size and their application requirements. If the size of the company is small or medium, I will propose ManageEngine. Secondly, I examine the capability of the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I evaluated CA and IBM.
