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."
"There are alerting mechanisms in place to let us know, for example, if a device is not responding to a ping test and is probably not going to work."
"The most valuable features are monitoring and reporting."
"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."
"I would like to see better integration with other products."
"Technical support could use some improvement."
"This price of this solution is reasonable."
