We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The monitoring is similar to Dynatrace."
"AppDynamics is easy to implement if you follow the documentation, and the documentation that they provide is good."
"Despite dozens of deployments across hundreds of applications- we have yet to see a case where AD is negatively impacting application execution or functionality."
"The solution helps us save a lot of time on certain tasks."
"The SAP monitoring element is very helpful."
"I have found the main feature of the solution to be its ability to analyze an application's code to see where there are issues. Additionally, it is easy to use and configure."
"It helped to find quick solutions for specific business transactions."
"This solution is easy to use and very powerful, it is a complete tool for us."
"Provides an overview and high-level information."
"The most valuable feature is that it ensures our servers are up."
"Azure Monitor is really just a source for Dynatrace. It's just collecting data and monitoring the environment and the infrastructure. It is fairly good at that."
"Good load and metrics gathering and very good analysis."
"The solution is quite stable."
"We like this searchability and availability of the data."
"The most valuable feature is that it's stable. It hasn't crossed any thresholds."
"The solution works well overall. It's easy to implement and simple to use."
"The worst part is that the AppDynamics SaaS Environment has a lot of downtimes, and AppDynamics, despite our efforts, does not give us any feedback on these downtimes/incidents."
"They need to improve the consolidation of agents for the agent's installation process."
"If it can be able to intelligently provide all the things we need to look at, from a data point of view, that would be very useful."
"The cost element is an issue. I can't expect the company to change its way of work. However, given the fact that we earn and do all our business in South African Rand, I would prefer to buy in Rand as opposed to the American dollar or British pound."
"AppDynamics is dealing with a lot of products and technologies, so we need to have clear documentation."
"More native support for other hardware is needed because having to install various extensions and perform extra setup for different devices is really challenging, and not as easy or straightforward as it is in other products."
"I would like to see more artificial intelligence and machine learning brought in to monitor the statement and payment sum issues we have."
"There could be some improvement in the constructions of the diagrams, it is too difficult currently."
"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."
"In my opinion, they should improve the overall user experience, especially when it comes to indexing and searching collective logs."
"The process of implementation needs to be easier."
"Lacks information including details related to where problems lie."
"Automation related to gathering metrics from more applications could be improved."
"The price could be lower but it is not a must."
"When something goes down, we want the option to have automation in place to get it back up again as quickly as possible."
"There are a lot of things that take more time to do, such as charting, alerting, and correlation of data, and things like that. Azure Monitor doesn't tell you why something happened. It just tells you that it happened. It should also have some type of AI. Environments and applications are becoming more and more complex every day with hundreds or thousands of microservices. Therefore, having to do a lot of the stuff manually takes a lot of time, and on top of that, troubleshooting issues takes a lot of time. The traditional method of troubleshooting doesn't really work for or apply to this environment we're in. So, having an AI-based system and the ability to automate deployments of your monitoring and configurations makes it much easier."
"I was not involved with the procurement of AppDynamic, but I believe it's expensive."
"This solution is not the cheapest but it works well. You will end up doing more work with a cheaper solution than if you just spent the extra money on a better solution like this one."
"As compared to other applications, its price is moderate. Its price is neither very high nor very low."
"There is a license for the solution and we paid approximately $2,000. There is also an additional cost above the standard license which cost us approximately $3,000."
"We do not have any issues with the price."
"There is a license to use this solution. However, the clients pay for the licenses we are the service provider."
"The price of AppDynamics could be reduced in my region."
"For those who appreciate the value and had issues with the visibility of the performance of their applications, then the pricing is good. For somebody who does not need it, it can be pricey, but overall, it is worth the money which it costs."
