We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The initial setup is straightforward."
"The features that I find most valuable are related to network monitoring."
"The configuration and the manager tool are good features."
"The most valuable features are the low overhead, the ability to monitor production on 24/7 principle, the ability to decrease time to discover the point of failure in the IT infrastructure or the application environment in a short period of time, reporting for analyzing the performance of the application for improving the code optimizing process."
"The feature that I have found the most valuable is its user interface."
"I like that it gives you a wide range of data where you can see the application outage response from concurrent locations and the number of stalled jobs."
"Deep Dive and Transaction Analysis Triage capability."
"JVM memory monitoring and connection pool monitoring are valuable features."
"Once you are trained on the solution, it's easy to navigate. It's got very good documentation and training offerings."
"The product allows us to build preferred/customized business transactions to track complex transactions. UEM (User Experience Monitoring) agents track user experience on webRequests. The advantage is that Dynatrace correlates the measures on the devices with those on the backend servers, giving us an end-to-end view of the transaction, from the user's phone deep into the backend servers."
"Dynatrace helped us with root cause analysis of poor performing components of our applications."
"The solution has a very good user interface."
"The deployment itself is very easy and straightforward."
"The agent deployment is the most valuable. You don't need to do any configuration. You just deploy the agents, and it can automatically detect your infrastructure. That was the greatest feature that we saw in Dynatrace. If there is any database, it can detect it automatically and present everything to you."
"Its monitoring and key purpose capabilities are the most valuable. It provides the root cause of problems and helps peers join the war room."
"I find that the AI on offer is useful, as it's good at identifying problems. You do need a bit of customizing, however, even in its sort of vanilla form, it's pretty good at identifying problems and the root causes of those problems and whatnot."
"User Experience is a BIG one. Integration of all of APM components into one swift deployment."
"It doesn't have a proper database, and the configuration is very difficult."
"Technical support needs to be more responsive and address support tickets more quickly."
"The stability could be more reliable."
"You can sell licenses and install the full tool on service, you can show customers how to install, but how to use it and solve issues cannot be done without the experience."
"Lacks some integration between all the tools."
"With respect to SQL monitoring, it would be nice to have a little more information because it doesn't provide the full statement all of the time."
"They can make it easier to configure."
"The dashboard could improve."
"The solution could improve on integration, cloud services, and making the configuration less difficult."
"Dashboarding and having different templates available for more business reporting, or even other metrics, would be useful."
"Dashboards and monitoring capabilities can be improved for monitoring applications in Azure. In Azure, it would be cool to be able to monitor network consumption as well as flow communication."
"The flexibility when it comes to integrating with other tools is very low."
"The solution's ability to assess the severity of anomalies based on the actual impact to users and business KPIs is great. In my opinion, it could be extended even more. I would like it to be more configurable for the end-user. It would be nice to have more business rules applicable to the severity. It's already very good as it is now. It is based on the impact on your front-end users. But it would be nice if we could configure it a bit more."
"Due to the fact that you doing a lot, you have a problem with the learning curve. We're really looking for ways to make this product more accessible."
"They've leveraged those security gateways and renamed them ActiveGates, and now there are different web plugins we can run on it... Sometimes the development of those seems to be running very fast and it's not complete. They don't yet function quite as easily as the OneAgents do. But I have hopes that that's going to get better. We have tried the MQ, the Citrix, and the Oracle ActiveGate plugins. They could be sharper. It's the right direction to go. It just seems like it could be smoother."
"Broadcom is a better and cheaper option from the financial perspective. It also depends on the DLP plug."
"It is definitely expensive for what we get, but there isn't an alternate option at the moment."
"All discounts are case by case to accommodate the client's budgets."
"The licensing costs are expensive."
"It's more expensive than other solutions, but worth it. We use full APM monitoring on our primary systems, but only resource monitoring on lesser systems. We shift licenses around our environment when a deeper dive into lesser systems is required."
"Dynatrace's pricing for their consumption units is rather arcane compared to some of the other tools, thus making forward-looking calculations based on capacity planning quite hard."
"The only limitation with scaling to cloud-native environments is licensing. It all depends on how many DEM units you're willing to license. The more of DEM units that you purchase, the more user data you can collect."
"It's understandable to do a smaller scale initial evaluation. However, as you identify the product value, don't hesitant in your scope and scale to maximize the initial investment and your opportunity to do a bulk investment of the product."
"The price range is quite high."
"The price of the solution is expensive."
"We have a three-year contract. We have 30 licenses for the full stack and 3 licenses for the DEM unit."
