Pros
"The most valuable feature of this solution is its ease of use.""The feature that I have found most valuable in ManageEngine Applications Manager is its dashboard.""ManageEngine Applications Manager maintains the historical data and it's easy for us to analyze the trends and patterns and fix them accordingly.""Its price and the flexibility to deploy are the most valuable. Flexibility is very important, and you can scale from very basic to more complex. This solution is a part of a complete suite of management tools. So, it can be integrated with other solutions for monitoring networks, which is very important. You can expand it or interconnect it with many other tools, which is a powerful feature. We have a very good and long relationship with ManageEngine support guys. They provide very good support for us."

Cons
"The dashboards in the interface need a lot of work.""The information provided by ManageEngine is not deep-dive like IBM and CA provide.""They could probably rearrange the UI so that it would be easy for people who are new to the Application Manager to configure things.""They can improve the post-processing of the data. AppDynamics has more powerful tools for post-processing or analytics. It has some limitations in more complex environments, but because we are free to use different solutions, we try to find what is best for the customers or the problem we are trying to solve."

More ManageEngine Applications Manager Cons »

"I would like to see more standard libraries for the market solutions, out of the box, that you don't need to do a lot of work on.""I would like to see better support for monitoring Unix-based systems.""On-prem network monitoring is something that could be improved drastically.""The console feature is very poor, and it would be very good for us if this were improved.""The end-user components, including the dashboards, the administration console, and the web console, need to be improved.""All of the areas of reporting are very bad and need to be improved.""It lacks certain details that other products do better, like granular access and better application monitoring.""Of course, price is always an issue with Microsoft and could be improved."
