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 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."

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error traceability is an area that can be improved.""The pricing model could be simplified as it feels a bit outdated, especially when you look at the billing model of compute instances vs the containers instances.""Datadog has a lot of documentation, but a lot of that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 »

"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."

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 price is approximately €30,000 ($35,500 USD) for the enterprise edition."
