Pros
"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.

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 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."

"It's difficult to set up initially, and their billing model is also a bit complicated.""There are a lot of competitive products that are doing better than what Splunk is doing on the analytics side.""Our two main complaints are about the difficulty of the initial setup and the licensing model.""The solution has a high learning curve for users. It's a little complicated when you're trying to figure out all the features and what they do.""This is a costly solution.""It could be more user friendly, in terms of the end-user experience.""I'd say I am happy with the technical support, not elated. They provide great support, but sometimes they don't have the answers that I need.""In terms of the interface, it could include some improvements for the look and feel."
