We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"AppDynamics has been stable."
"The release management capabilities are great."
"In 2014 and 2015, AppDynamics was one of the best products on the market."
"Technical support is helpful."
"The features that I like best are the dashboard and Business Journey."
"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."
"Once you get past installation, AppDynamics is highly stable and we get good results."
"Capacity planning is, in my opinion, the most useful."
"The most valuable features are security detections, perimeter detection, dashboards, and alerts."
"The initial setup could be easier."
"Installation and configuration can be very tough. An average user without specialized knowledge can't do this. You need to have DevOps and QA teams handle it. During installation, a lot of customers get stuck trying to track the database or the API part, and they have to contact customer support."
"The cloud licensing needs to be improved. It's quite pricey."
"The dashboard can be better. Also, the automated reports could be improved."
"The solution could be more user-friendly for diagnostic purposes. Anyone who is using the solution should be able to infer what that error is about, they should be able to troubleshoot it better."
"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 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."
"We constantly need to improve our alert mechanism because we get a lot of false-positive alerts. These are not real errors. In addition, for end-user monitoring, sometimes, we are not able to catch all user activities. Because of not being able to follow the user activity from the start to the end, we are missing out on the performance issues."
"Network visibility is something that needs to be improved."
"I was not involved with the procurement of AppDynamic, but I believe it's expensive."
"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."
"There is a license to use this solution. However, the clients pay for the licenses we are the service provider."
"We do not have any issues with the price."
"As compared to other applications, its price is moderate. Its price is neither very high nor very low."
"There is an annual cost to use this solution. The licensing model could be improved by making it more cost-effective."
"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."
"The price of AppDynamics could be reduced in my region."
"The price of this solution for our environment is about £650,000 ($855,000 USD) for three years."
