Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Working with the solution is very easy. It's user-friendly.""It does everything we wanted it to do.""The VPN is one of the solution's most valuable features for us.""The most valuable feature is application monitoring.""The service maps that it creates, the health maps that it creates, the insights that it provides, etc., are all quite useful.""End-user Synthetics and monitoring are very good.""The breakdown of the response time of different components and getting in-depth details of the slow component are the most valuable features. It is easy to use, and it gets the job done.""The simplicity of the dashboard is very good."

Cons
"The product has good documentation for Linux, however, their documentation for Windows is lacking substantially. It's something they need to develop.""They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive.""The deployment process could be improved.""The older view is much better than the new view that they have. We'd like to go back to that previous version. The user interface just isn't as nice as it used to be.""It would be nice if there were pre-made dashboards.""There has been some problem with the agent, and it is just not working well. It is not able to record information with the application server. They have been able to fix the issue, but it took quite a long time. This is the main issue in the APM products and also in New Relic. The mobile application monitoring has been pretty difficult to set up and also quite expensive. It should be a little bit easier and cheaper. Because it is pretty difficult and expensive, many customers don't take it.""How granular I could go down at looking at certain data, especially related to the operations, is limited.""It is very difficult to award the service level cycles at an endpoint level."

"It could use a URL document server. Everything in the market is moving towards automation and everybody's looking for the single click operations as well relational data locality."

Pricing and Cost Advice
