Cons
The level of technical support the solution offers could be improved.The documentation isn't very good and the options are very complex.In the next release, I would like to see better integration between the cloud environment and the on-premises environment.We've never had any issues with the solution, but it's still nice to have overall improvements on it. It could be easier and faster to use, for example.The documentation is not very detailed. They need to improve it and add to it. They should ensure there are lots of visuals to help users better understand the solution.If Microsoft IIS could work well with AppOptics or things like PHP, Python, and other custom languages that run on the webserver, it would be ideal. I think there are cases where people need to use Apache instead of IIS when IIS doesn't work well with other web languages.This solution needs to be easier for cases where you want to have an IIS cluster.The solution should improve the cluster environment and load balancing.

The user interface could be improved to be more friendly for developers.When you have several tasks, you open a screen in a task in developing mode, and you don't see the parent screens. Debugging lacks the effects to solve problems. You have to do it first in a kind of studio. Then you have to be sure that you can do it in Magic because there is almost nothing to debug it. It's practically impossible to debug. You have to be sure before you put your snippets.

The cost for developers is high because you have to pay for licenses as well as runtime.It's not cheap. The licenses are not cheap. Not at all. They cost much money. There are other tools with free licenses but Magic asks for a lot of money.
