We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I am impressed by the reporting on the average eight ports that we get from this solution."
"It's a service from Microsoft, so it will scale."
"The solution integrates well with the Microsoft platform."
"A product that is well-integrated for monitoring Microsoft Azure."
"The most valuable feature is that it's stable. It hasn't crossed any thresholds."
"The most valuable feature is that it ensures our servers are up."
"The solution works well overall. It's easy to implement and simple to use."
"Good load and metrics gathering and very good analysis."
"The Real User Monitor, with its transaction and synthetic transaction monitoring, is the typical classic in APM cases when the customer would like to do transaction monitoring. Micro Focus scores better where the underlying infrastructure management is also covered by Micro Focus tools."
"The most valuable feature is application performance monitoring."
"The technical support is good at resolving issues."
"They need to work on a more hybrid deployment that will allow us to monitor local on-premise deployments and connect to different systems. I would like to see more integration."
"They can simplify the overall complexity since you have multiple data sources in the cloud for monitoring. It's quite simple, but there are so many portals. It takes time to work with it. If they could simplify the user configuration, that would be good."
"n comparison to New Relic, which I've used before, it's a bit more complicated. It's not as easy to use. It also took some time to get it working. The implementation needs to be simpler."
"As a younger product it still has room for feature improvement and enhancement."
"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."
"When something goes down, we want the option to have automation in place to get it back up again as quickly as possible."
"I'd like the solution to do more around vulnerability assessment. It's lacking in the product right now."
"Automation related to gathering metrics from more applications could be improved."
"One area to improve is the user interface, of course. The second one is their R&D has virtually stopped building a product roadmap."
"We would like to see support for non-Windows environments."
"When we want to monitor our encrypted traffic, this product doesn't work because our cipher is not supported."
"The price is approximately €30,000 ($35,500 USD) for the enterprise edition."

Real User Monitoring (RUM) an End user monitoring that gives you visibility into user behavior for fast, targeted problem resolution. It monitors the performance and availability of business-critical application services for all users at all locations all the time. It automatically discovers underlying infrastructure and classifies user actions - giving you instant visibility into session and whole service health over web, cloud, and mobile user experience. It allows you to trace user experience across tiers, capture live sessions, see where customers clicked, measure response times, and see pages that caused problems. And you can easily capture and replay user sessions to create test scripts that reflect real user behavior. All this data gives you new ability to analyze which application transactions your users are performing and what application response they are experiencing. RUM currently supports over 20 application protocols and applications such as SAP, Citrix, and native mobile application monitoring on Android.
