Dynatrace Pricing and License Cost

Platform Engineer at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
Just go with Dynatrace. Just start with Dynatrace. Do not go into AppMon. Start with Dynatrace, because AppMon is going to give you so much extra stuff that 99% of your user base will not need it, including yourself. You don't need AppMon. I am a hardcore AppMon guy and I am still saying this. It is a lot nicer to be able to start with the Dynatrace solution, be able to script everything, and start integrating the new thing than it is to try to do the old tool set. View full review »

The licensing for Dynatrace is high. If you want to go for monitoring solutions, then why Dynatrace? If you have a particular budget, you can go for many other monitoring tools - apart from Dynatrace - and they can help you more and give more data than Dynatrace can. And secondly Dynatrace also comes with a lot of issues, which I have mentioned elsewhere in this review, which can easily be rectified using other tools. It's not worth the money that you spend for Dynatrace. View full review »

If I had a colleague interested in purchasing Dynatrace, I would ask these questions: * What are you using these days? * What are you missing? * If you have that missing point as well as what you already have, why not go for Dynatrace? View full review »

I don't think the limitations are technical at this point, honestly. My limitations are more to do - and maybe it's because of the nature of the job I have - but they have to do with pricing. It's a little bit pricey. It's a very good tool. It's worth the price, to a certain degree. But it's hard to justify when it's that costly. View full review »
IT Analyst Senior at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
I would like to see them improve on their licensing and the cost. It's been a challenge for us because the way they have it broken out right now, you have to buy it by units. It's hard for us to know where to put those units because our company is broken up into all these different business units, so it's been challenging in that sense. I just would like to see them improve that model a little bit. View full review »

Pricing can be high, especially for Portuguese standards. But as one says, you get what you pay for. Setup cost is very low considering that it is an almost totally, automatic process. Installing SaaS or managed is only some minutes away. Given that there is no configuration involved in the agents, you can develop how many you want per hour. It only depends on your IT deployment strategy. TCO is thus much lower than expected. Licensing is very interesting, as you pay only for what is being monitored. A lot of things are given away for no additional cost. If you have a great IT consolidation, it will be pretty cheap. If you have a lot of servers, it will be heavier. View full review »

There is a license issue where if we increase the memory we have to up the licenses. I was unaware of that going in. I thought it was scalable without all the paperwork behind the scenes. View full review »

I understand that due to comparisons we did, that Dynatrace is still kind of an expensive solution compared to others. But I recognize that they are ahead of the competition when we do a feature by feature comparison. We have a very stringent budget for an infrastructure solution. Maybe if they provided modules, a simple module with fewer features and a lower price, that would be very good. View full review »

Surprisingly, it is quite expensive. That is something that we could always see: Improved pricing and the overall construct on how do we use each license in regards to usage of the tool. View full review »

Head of Delivery and CTO at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
As with a BPM project, Dynatrace fits really well a start small, scale fast environment. Getting the first agents installed, getting information, and coverage in a initial set of systems can be done in hours and with a low cost entry point. Rather than investing months building an enterprise-wide business case, our recommendation to our clients is that resources are better invested in proving the value with a small pilot.

The product is definitely worth taking a look at. Be aware that it is probably more pricey than other options on the market, but there are a lot of capabilities. Dynatrace has an eye toward the future and the computing and monitoring needs that we are gonna need for the cloud. View full review »

Make sure your leadership buy-in is in place. Ensure leadership understands that an APM solution is a fairly expensive, so they know what they are getting into. Tools come and go, but it is the vendor relationship that is important. View full review »
IT Specialist at a government with 10,001+ employees
Look at the product and the product features, not the price. Too often people look at the price and turn away. Dynatrace costs a little bit more than the other products I researched, but it can do far more. Since my last review, I have stood up a competitor's product. My Dynatrace installation is two servers plus my collectors. The competitor's product required seven servers. That is significant when looking at the cost. I feel the price is good for what the product does. View full review »

Our most important criteria when selecting a vendor are the features and local support of the agency. Those two along with pricing are very important. The reason we eventually chose Dynatrace was for the automatic (auto-baseline) of detection for the API performance issues. View full review »
