We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is the one that enables you to have visibility into the end-users journey."
"The most valuable feature is that we can see how our end-users are interacting with our application across regions."
"It is a stable solution that helps address user issues well."
"The most valuable feature is the end-user monitoring."
"We use AppDynamics and Elastic. The reason why we're using Elastic APM is because of the license count. It's very favorable compared to AppDynamics. It's inexpensive; it's economical."
"The price is very less expensive compared to the other solutions."
"For full stack observability, Elastic is the best tool compared with any other tool ."
"The solution allows us to dig deep into data."
"AppD is really cool and a unified solution for both APM and APM centric Analytics side. We can show almost all business data within the APM context from the end-user perspetive. But this process is a little bit manual. If they catch and map business journeys based on customer interaction on the browser automatically, it should be really fine."
"If you have a single URL and all the operations are coming in as part of the header, you will not be able to segregate them for different actions."
"I would like to see support for mobile testing and mobile monitoring."
"I would like to have customizable dashboards to use when I am monitoring certain applications."
"Elastic APM's visualization is not that great compared to other tools. It's number of metrics is very low."
"The solution needs to use more AI. Once the product onboards AI, users would more effectively be able to track endpoints for specific messages."
"The solution would be better if it was capable of more automation, especially in a monitoring capacity or for the response to abnormalities."
"The auto-discovery isn't nearly as good. That's a big portion of it. When you drop the agent onto the JVM and you're trying to figure things out, having to go through and manually do all that is cumbersome."
"AppDynamics Browser Real-User Monitoring does have licensing cost associated with it."
"This price of this product is expensive."
"AppDynamics is more expensive than competitors."
How do real users experience your browser-based applications? Using browser real-user monitoring follow their journey and optimize their experience with powerful end-to-end performance management that rapidly identifies application issues and relevant business transactions, and dramatically reduces MTTR.
Elastic APM is an application performance monitoring system built on the Elastic Stack. It allows you to monitor software services and applications in real time — collect detailed performance information on response time for incoming requests, database queries, calls to caches, external HTTP requests, and more. This makes it easy to pinpoint and fix performance problems quickly.
Elastic APM also automatically collects unhandled errors and exceptions. Errors are grouped based primarily on the stacktrace, so you can identify new errors as they appear and keep an eye on how many times specific errors happen.
