We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The product is stable and the technical support is good.The solution is very, very stable. We haven't faced any bugs or glitches on the system.The feature that is most valuable to us is the snapshot feature. It allows us to get a snapshot of different SQL scripts that are being executed simultaneously and we can identify everything we need on them.The most valuable aspect of the solution is the ability to discover and track transactions.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.The ability to identify the top running queries has been extremely valuable for us.We were able to correct problems, which led to an increase in availability, time savings, and performance for our solutions.AppDynamics is scalable. They can monitor billions of transactions because they're not monitoring all transactions. They're monitoring samples. So, they can offer good monitoring for the huge sites.

As an Administrator, before we bought this AppInternals, I didn't have visibility on why items were slow or why an application was not running. This gives us the ability to see what's going on. The application is load balancing. We can now see if its own server has issues or just one specific server has issues.The most valuable aspect of this solution is the integration with their other systems. It's easy to understand and it points out the relevant problems in the enterprise.I like it that one can match IPs with the application name.

Cons
The product lost its place as an industry leader.The setup, implementation and use are clumsy and need to be refined.An improvement could be if the monitoring was able to be summarized into something more clear and simple for people who don't have the technical skills on the database side.The application monitoring needs improvement. It needs to be easier for someone who isn't a proficient developer.The user access management could be a bit better.The solution should add some monitoring similar to Oracle monitoring tools for databases. It has a lot of features to monitor SQL queries, and make some recommendation to resolve it. AppDynamics is just monitoring for delays and doesn't provide any recommendations for that. It's a deficiency.Stability-wise, we experienced some performance issues when upgrading from 4.4 to 4.5.Based on the user experience feedback that we have had, I think that the most important thing to improve is the availability of the SaaS, the cloud environment.

It would be great if the solution could offer fixed bundles and more features.I would like for it to have automated updates, the way the product updates itself should be all automated, as opposed to what it is now.The technical support is not very good and should be improved.
