The most valuable feature of New Relic APM is the dashboard, New Relic Insights. I configured my own dashboard to monitor certain parameters.As soon as it monitors all our systems and is integrated with PagerDuty, the operations team just needs to wait for alerts on their cellphones to fix things.They have baseline level alerting.We detect issues using dashboards that we built on New Relic.Every time there is a crisis, high traffic, or if we see a problem with a server, we go to New Relic and monitor it to determine the cause.The deep insights, which will give you the metrics (not a high level), so we can build out at the database level where the bottleneck is. This has been pretty helpful.New Relic has helped us in terms of the optimizing our print and loading times.It is a software solution as a service, so I don't have to manage it on-premise.

I would like to see the company implement the AI auto-baseline feature which Dynatrace has.I would like if it could have predictive analysis. Today, we only have the option to configure thresholds.I would like an infrastructure network that provides real-time views, showing the issues.Compared to their competitors, they are missing some features at the moment.The APIs could be better. I would also like more APIs and features to integrate with streaming solutions, like Kinesis or Kafka.I would like to be able to invest less time in IT and ad hocs. We should be concentrating on other issues.I would like to have storage monitoring. E.g., being able to monitor SANS, specifically protocols, like NFS and CIFS metrics.The integration and configuration of this product in our AWS environment needs improvement on the filtering part. I would like it to go more granular on accounts.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It's not cheap, but there are a few different packages and different prices for enterprises with different product versions.

Pricing is better with New Relic APM than Dynatrace.The new licensing model is great, as we pay for what we use (in computational units). However, the pricing is expensive compared to other tools.The detection piece of it brings us a big return on investment.The pricing could be better. We did not purchase the full version. Maybe if we applied all the other features of the full version of New Relic, we could get all the features that we feel are missing.Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was easy. The product is easy to deploy and manage, which is why our company purchased through the AWS Marketplace.The pricing model is a little confusing for beginners. They find it a little expensive, and if you are using it already, then that is not good.The pricing is okay comparatively their competitors. The only concern was whether it should be purchased on demand or bring your own license, and which way passes some savings onto the end customers.We deploy everything on AWS. Purchasing the product on AWS Marketplace made it easier for us.
