It gives good insight into inside of what's going on with Exchange.The GUI is nicer than all the other graphical interfaces out there.Its ability to monitor failures and to restart a Windows service when it fails.The ability to see what the end user response is, so I can get a better understanding of what the end user is seeing when they connect to the Citrix servers.Enormous capability to monitor Citrix environments.The most important feature is the ability to design, then implement monitoring tests on the fly as we are adapting to different situations.The auto-configuration or auto-Thresholding is very important because it saves a phenomenal amount of labor and setup costs and time.EG monitors all infrastructure elements (all OS, all database, storage, network, and web server) from a single console.

In the new Dynatrace solution, support for legacy applications is still not there. ​The functionality needs improvement.Because we are financial, there are certain things that we cannot put on the cloud. However, that is a given fact, not only for us. It is a given fact for any financial company because of PCI compliance. Because of PCI compliance, companies don't take the risk of putting data in the cloud.The GUI has the most room for improvement. Sometimes, it can be a little cumbersome to find things and be able to create your own views, or be able to dig in and understand where things are.It needs a better way to figure out how to dig deeper into the details, e.g., sometimes we have to wade through multiple logs, etc.I would like Dynatrace to be more flexible and user-friendly.Every time we spin up an EC2 instance, we have to slap an agent on it and that is more work. So, if it could go agentless, that would be great.The new Managed Edition is too complex. I feel like a fish out of water.

Dashboards are difficult to create, and not so useful.Back-end configuration is not easy to implement.The interface could be improved as it is not real intuitive. It is not user-friendly.Their dashboards could use some improvement. The ability to customize them a bit more.Needs to improve the networking monitor capabilities.I can understand why they designed the user interface (UI) the way they did, but sometimes in the management of the eG Manager, it can be a bit clunky.would like to see improvements in the alarm display console.The UI looks a little dated and could do with a refresh.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing can be high, especially for Portuguese standards. But as one says, you get what you pay for.Setup cost is very low considering that it is an almost totally, automatic process.Licensing is very interesting, as you pay only for what is being monitored. A lot of things are given away for no additional cost. If you have a great IT consolidation, it will be pretty cheap. If you have a lot of servers, it will be heavier.I have not been able to observe more than 1% overhead, despite Dynatrace saying that it can be slightly higher in some situations.Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace is excellent.The pricing and licensing are very expensive.Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was a pretty straightforward process. We had no hiccups.I think the pricing is at a fair value for what it is.

They gave us a good price, when they were found out we were looking at other products because their price was very high. We were looking at another solution, then we came back to them was because they brought the price down. We selected them for three years.It is not expensive.They are aligned with other enterprise solutions.It'd be nice if the price was lower. That would be an improvement.If using eG for virtual desktops, carefully calculate whether per named user, per concurrent user, or per server
