We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The monitoring is similar to Dynatrace."
"The AppDyniamics technical support is good. We haven't had any problems with them. They answer very quickly."
"It is easy to gain visibility into complex environments with AppDynamics. It has the ability to combine operation information of the environment and business information with strong business IQ support."
"The release management capabilities are great."
"The solution helps us save a lot of time on certain tasks."
"This is a stable product and we definitely plan to continue using it in the future."
"It helped to find quick solutions for specific business transactions."
"It's good for a larger scale deployment such as what my company is working on."
"The stability has been very good over the years."
"The agent deployment could be simplified by, for example, adding a GUI."
"An area that has room for improvement on the CR and ERP would be the addition of monitoring of the internal solution. For example, you can monitor the day-to-day and everything in the transactions with AppDynamics, but there's also a lot going on in the kernel itself that you cannot monitor. The automation needs to improve as well. As it stands, a lot of customization needs to happen before you can use AppDynamics."
"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 dashboard can be better. Also, the automated reports could be improved."
"As per my experience, the drill-down feature can be improved at the class level."
"They need to improve the consolidation of agents for the agent's installation process."
"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."
"The cloud licensing needs to be improved. It's quite pricey."
"The solution should offer better integration with other tools from a service management perspective."
"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."
"We do not have any issues with the price."
"I was not involved with the procurement of AppDynamic, but I believe it's expensive."
"There is a license to use this solution. However, the clients pay for the licenses we are the service provider."
"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."
"As compared to other applications, its price is moderate. Its price is neither very high nor very low."
"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."
"The price of AppDynamics could be reduced in my region."
