Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"This is definitely a good product and I would consider them one of the leaders within the application monitoring and cloud monitoring space.""Datadog's ability to group and visualize the servers and the data makes it relatively easy for the root cause analysis.""Straightforward to integrate and automate.""Having a clear view, not only of our infrastructure but our apps and services as well, has brought a great added value to our customers.""Having a wealth of information has helped us investigate outages, and having historical data helps us tune our system.""The most valuable features are logging, the extensive set of integrations, and easy jumpstart.""The fact that everything is under a single pane of glass is really valuable, as developers don't have to spend their time copying correlation IDs across tools to find what they need.""The most valuable feature is the dashboards that are provided out of the box, as well as ones we were able to configure."

"The feature that I have found most valuable in ManageEngine Applications Manager is its dashboard.""ManageEngine Applications Manager maintains the historical data and it's easy for us to analyze the trends and patterns and fix them accordingly.""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."

Cons
"Additional metrics should be included.""Datadog lacks a deeper application-level insight. Their competitors had eclipsed them in offering ET functionality that was important to us. That's why we stopped using it and switched to New Relic. Datadog's price is also high.""Could be a little more user friendly.""The error traceability is an area that can be improved.""The pricing model could be simplified as it feels a bit outdated, especially when you look at the billing model of compute instances vs the containers instances.""Datadog has a lot of documentation, but a lot of that documentation assumes you know how the service works, which can lead to confusion.""In the past two years, there have been a couple of outages.""The incident management beta looks promising, but it is still missing the ability to automatically create incidents based on certain alerts."

More Datadog Cons »

"The information provided by ManageEngine is not deep-dive like IBM and CA provide.""They could probably rearrange the UI so that it would be easy for people who are new to the Application Manager to configure things.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It didn't scale well from the cost perspective. We had a custom package deal.""The price is better than some competing products.""Pricing is somewhat affordable compared to other solutions but in order to really lower the costs of other products you need to plan very carefully your resources usage, otherwise, it can get expensive real quick.""It is easy to run up a large bill, so become familiar with the cost of each piece of your bill and use the metrics they supply to estimate and monitor your bill.""Pricing seemed easy until the bill came in and some things were not accounted for.""The cost is high and this can be justified if the scale of the environment is big.""My advice is to really keep an eye on your overage costs, as they can spiral really fast.""If you do your homework, you'll find that if you're really concerned with cost, it's good."

"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."
