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 Monitor Templates functionality allowed us to spin up monitoring with .csv files pretty easily."
"There's no agent you need installed on the servers. In our environment, we have some servers out of our control so we cannot manage them. We use SiteScope to monitor the availability, the resources on the servers, etc. This allows us to do this job without installing agents so there's no need to take care of anything on the server."
"The product's ability to monitor systems and applications and send alerts and create support tickets are the most valuable features of the product."
"For the system environment, SiteScope can be useful."
"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."
"They have not kept up with browser security requirements or advances in GUIs, they switched to a corruptible database architecture instead of text config files."
"Sometimes in a huge environment, I think the documentation does not provide the required calculations so you can't know what the required set up should be. You need to test."
"It may lack some features other products in the category have like more detailed transaction tracking."
"SiteScope isn't productive if you want to monitor RAM or if you want to monitor some URL."
"You have to pay for their "solution templates". Other tools do not charge you for knowledge-based monitoring bundles."
