Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are currently in the process of migrating from Micro Focus to Dynatrace. With Dynatrace, it will automatically implement the application and you can monitor using a small JavaScript that is… more »

What other advice do I have?

I have to say that I am very disappointed with this solution. It's very heavy, and it is a nightmare to deploy and maintain. Compared to all of the other solutions, Micro Focus is out of date. In… more »
