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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

The product is pricey, but it is feature-rich, which is why we probably haven't looked away from it. View full review »

While it is quite good in respect to its functionality, there are few area in regards to pricing that they can look at how to possibly change. I have heard it's costly. 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 »
