Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The view it provides for default analysis is very nice. The way in which it showcases how the metrics have been captured and how lucidly that they are displayed. This is a good thing to have from a technical and non-technical perspective.""It reduces our efforts to identify services failing in production.""You don't have to configure it. It just needs to be installed.""It provides us a reference for being able to go back and look at data at a certain point, analyze it, then determine if something was the root cause.""The stability is rock solid. We put a lot of stress on it.""It gives us visibility into the product and what we are doing operationally.""The visibility that it provides through the application's behavior allows us to find trends based on our customized metrics.""The graphical interface is helpful, as it illustrates things well for anyone who wants to know about the information it provides."

"This solution allows me to have true visibility for any metrics when it comes to my cloud, and private.""This solution makes it a lot easier to figure out trends within very different data sources, which makes it easy to see why something is misbehaving.""The features I find most valuable is the querying and alerting capabilities.""People are very pleased with the implementation.""The most valuable aspects of the solution are its ease of use and its ease of implementation.""No issues with stability."

Cons
"For the manage services, they work on CloudWatch logs and are given CloudWatch logs only. I would like more collaboration with AWS and insight into CloudWatch services. This would be valuable, especially when detecting the fault of the root cause analysis. It would make the process go faster.""They should include more mission learning into the product and provide additional performance metrics for application learning.""When compared with other tools, the experience needs improvement. I would like them to build out the interactions and make them friendlier.""I would like them to add serverless capabilities, because everyone is going there.""As we move into using more AWS native architectures, it should support everything that we want to do. We don't want to adopt another tool.""The new Managed Edition is too complex. I feel like a fish out of water.""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.""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."

More Dynatrace Cons »

"I would like to see integration with Kubernetes cluster and APIs so that you can manage the entire stack.""I would like to see more out-of-the-box dashboards for in-depth application monitoring of standard products that are out there.""In the new version, I would love to see more prediction capabilities. It would be great if one could see the alerts get a little more enriched with information and become more human-friendly instead of the technical stuff that they put in there. I think those would be really awesome outcomes to get.""The implementation is a long process that should be improved.""They could make it more easy to plug-in data so that a nontechnical person will be able to use it, like accountants or finance people. That way they don't have to ask us.""It could use a URL document server. Everything in the market is moving towards automation and everybody's looking for the single click operations as well relational data locality."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"While it is quite good in respect to its functionality, there are few area in regards to pricing that they can look at how to possibly change. I have heard it's costly.""There is time savings. People's times have been cut in half using this solution because we were previously doing a lot of that manual work. Now, it's a lot more automated, and the data is just there.""The price could be improved.""The product is pricey, but it is feature-rich, which is why we probably haven't looked away from it.""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.""The pricing and licensing are very expensive.""Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace is excellent."

"Educational pricing is available for this solution.""We were given a year's worth of service. It was included within our ELA. We were trying to do a proof of concept, which is almost over now.""Different locations require different setups. In your terms, around 300 to around 400K USD."
