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

Pros
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.

SCOM has improved our organization by simplifying the monitoring process. The system tells you what the bi-weekly or monthly usage was and that enables us to report this information to the manager. It shows if there was a connectivity issue that needs to be fixed and it's easier to concentrate on what needs to get fixed. System errors, therefore, get fixed faster.The solution is scalable. If you want to monitor more you have to buy more licenses, but you can add on. We don't plan to increase usage.This is a product that does more generally than any of the competing solutions.This solution saves us a lot of work because it reduces the effort that is required in order to start monitoring.This solution helps our application teams by allowing them to drill further into issues and perform a root cause analysis.The most valuable features for us are the monitoring, the health explorer, and the console.It takes a lot of the headache out of managing your data centers and software in other places.This solution satisfies all of the requirements that we need for our Windows-based systems, so if you are using the Windows platform then this is an easy solution.

Cons
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.

Then there is also an issue with capacity and limited space. That is something that needs to be improved.Of course, price is always an issue with Microsoft and could be improved.It lacks certain details that other products do better, like granular access and better application monitoring.All of the areas of reporting are very bad and need to be improved.The end-user components, including the dashboards, the administration console, and the web console, need to be improved.The console feature is very poor, and it would be very good for us if this were improved.On-prem network monitoring is something that could be improved drastically.I would like to see better support for monitoring Unix-based systems.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
