What is most valuable?* The alerting system * The integration of API Gateway with Lamda and Serverless AWS.

What is most valuable?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.

What is most valuable?Time of response for back-end and front-end (user) requests.

What is most valuable?* The APM * Monitoring * The capabilities which allow you to easily see whatever you are looking for.

What is most valuable?It's reliable, and the APM is the best of the market today.
How has it helped my organization?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.
What needs improvement?I would like if it could have predictive analysis. Today, we only have the option to configure thresholds. In addition, it would be nice to have centralized log management, like Datadog does. As New Relic already has all of the application… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?We renewed our contract directly with New Relic since our systems were hosted on on-premise data centers.
