Quotes From Members Comparing AppDynamics APM vs Quest Foglight for APM

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
Being able to install it on-prem and monitor our on-prem infrastructure is important for us... Most of our infrastructure is on-prem. We have highly scalable systems and AppDynamics will help us monitor our load on-prem. Our systems range from simple to the most complex and it gives us the visibility across transactions, in one dashboard.It has improved our organization with its ability to catch issues quickly and fix them.It is used to test customer behavior on a website.It has improved my organization because we are able to proactively and reactively look at performance issues.We are able to correlate performance between tiers.Despite dozens of deployments across hundreds of applications- we have yet to see a case where AD is negatively impacting application execution or functionality.Has helped us to increase customer acquisitions and reduce revenue leakage.Autodiscovery of application topology, based on real user traffic.

The most valuable feature is drill-down monitoring, which shows us from one interface the transaction chain from the front end to back end.It provides a history of the activities on our SQL servers.

Cons
I would like to be able to monitor both cloud an on-prem infrastructures, displayed in one dashboard.The QA and test environment need improvement.It needs strengthening in the database tiers.Additional support for NextGen mobile platforms also needs to be high in the roadmap prioritizationsThere needs to be an option to capture all the sessions for all the users, not just samplings.The GUI can be overwhelming at first to a novice Dev or Ops support person, and the possible root causes of an issue do not bubble up to the first screen you see.It would help to maybe have a more graphical interface and more user-friendly graphics.I’d like to see better out-of-the-box visual reporting so that we can roll this up to management.

I want to see a new interface that contains HTML5 features. The current version of Foglight (on-premise edition) is so fusty in comparison with leaders of Gartner APM Quadrant - i.e. Appdynamics, NewRelic, Dynatrace.I would perhaps like to see more SSMS connections.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I would like more flexible pricing: A pay-per-use model, rather than just a fixed-price model.The cost is prohibitive.It would be better if there were more solutions incorporated into the base price. ​The way it is structured in terms of price could be better. You pay for individual modules and that adds on to the cost, which detracts you from implementing those modules and slows you down.Take into consideration what you get for specific pricing models and how much it costs to add on things you may need later.​Because it is priced per JVM, the price can increase pretty fast, into the millions. We have had challenges because we had to justify the price to our clients, as well, when we are putting in certain tools.It could be cheaper. It's a little cost prohibitive. There are so many features that also show a lot of value, but it’s not always easy to justify the cost.It is not a cheap tool, but you also save in manpower to setup because it is easy and fast. At the end of the day, I think the revenue is much better. BUT, they have an awful co-term mode of licensing.
