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

Pros
With the Agentless monitoring and ability to create custom plugins, we've been able to transform the tool not just into a great APM solution but a really good enterprise monitoring solution too.Dynatrace helped us with root cause analysis of poor performing components of our applications.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.It has helped us improve the performance of many of our applications.With the latest version, the AI engine highlights the root causes automatically.The major improvement was the ability to find errors immediately and predict future failures, or when resources reach the maximum capacity.The most valuable feature is the ability to perform synthetic checks for monitoring sites using click paths.Dynatrace helped us to get a better understanding of how our services are communicating with each other, as well as better problem detection before something really breaks

Cons
This solution could be improved with better compatibility with legacy applications.It would be nice if there were a way that it could be made simpler, given the complexity of the things that we're monitoring.This solution needs better support for security and monolithic batch processes.If the user interface were made more intuitive then it would really benefit the product.Sometimes it is hard to find the right setting for what you want to change.This solution needs improvement in terms of automation.We would like the AI to produce more scientific data with less configuration.The reporting is still too young and needs to be improved.

Product documentation is lacking, and sometimes, incorrect. Having better documentation will allow business analysts and data center personnel to rely on the Micro Focus help desk less.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Our annual costs were about the same for both AppDynamics and Dynatrace.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.
