Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Dynatrace is an extremely helpful APM solution in large, complex environments, whenever we need to have an integrated vision of our users, infrastructure, and applications.""Given the full-stack approach, you are able to view from the end user perspective, almost down to the bare metal.""Dynatrace is capable of following all user actions across all monitored infrastructure, even to systems not monitored, but interconnected.""The solution is multi-tenant and based in Big data technology.""Never seen anything so complex be so simple to install.""When collecting data with Dynatrace, we saw every single transaction that happened in real-time.""Dynatrace has an auto-baseline and uses AI to monitor the performance of each API. The response time is related to the baseline.""The most valuable features for us include problem detection, root cause identification, Smartscape, and integration with cloud infrastructure like AWS, Azure, GCP, etc."

Cons
"In the new Dynatrace solution, support for legacy applications is still not there. ​""With Dynatrace in our environment, the managed server required root access to run. As a government agency with tight security, this has been an audit concern for us.""I would like to see the same features as in the New Relic Insights in the dashboard. That is the only thing I want to see improved in Dynatrace.""Most of the time, chat support is not good enough for answering queries.""As the product is evolving quickly and product features are added on a monthly basis, a more transparent roadmap would be more than welcome.""It needs a dashboard for cluster events in general, and for Kubernetes specifically.""I would like to have the ability to share live data with selected third parties so that they can see how their product is performing for our company.""The AI is not that intelligent and there are different places where it could be even more automated."

"The implementation needs improvement. It needs to get modernized with the newer cloud scenario in both public and private deployment models.""AppOptics would benefit from having a much more centralized view."

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.""Our annual costs were about the same for both AppDynamics and Dynatrace.""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.""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 solution has saved us money through the consolidation of tools. With a hybrid landscape, we had multiple tools. When we consolidated, we removed four or five other monitoring tools with one. For the last ROI calculation that I did, Dynatrace was saving us up to $500,000 per year."
