We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"We like this searchability and availability of the data."
"Provides an overview and high-level information."
"Azure Monitor is very stable."
"Good load and metrics gathering and very good analysis."
"The most valuable feature is that it ensures our servers are up."
"The solution is quite stable."
"The most valuable feature is that it's stable. It hasn't crossed any thresholds."
"The feature that I have found most valuable in ManageEngine Applications Manager is its dashboard."
"Its price and the flexibility to deploy are the most valuable. Flexibility is very important, and you can scale from very basic to more complex. This solution is a part of a complete suite of management tools. So, it can be integrated with other solutions for monitoring networks, which is very important. You can expand it or interconnect it with many other tools, which is a powerful feature. We have a very good and long relationship with ManageEngine support guys. They provide very good support for us."
"ManageEngine Applications Manager maintains the historical data and it's easy for us to analyze the trends and patterns and fix them accordingly."
"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."
"The process of implementation needs to be easier."
"Lacks information including details related to where problems lie."
"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."
"The price could be lower but it is not a must."
"I'd like the solution to do more around vulnerability assessment. It's lacking in the product right now."
"In my opinion, they should improve the overall user experience, especially when it comes to indexing and searching collective logs."
"When something goes down, we want the option to have automation in place to get it back up again as quickly as possible."
"The information provided by ManageEngine is not deep-dive like IBM and CA provide."
"They can improve the post-processing of the data. AppDynamics has more powerful tools for post-processing or analytics. It has some limitations in more complex environments, but because we are free to use different solutions, we try to find what is best for the customers or the problem we are trying to solve."
"They could probably rearrange the UI so that it would be easy for people who are new to the Application Manager to configure things."
"The licensing costs for ManageEngine Applications Manager are around $1,200 per year. For additional monitors, you have to pay extra."
"Its price is good."
