If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering ManageEngine Applications Manager, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
Before I recommend ManageEngine to a customer, I first look at the company size and their application requirements. If the size of the company is small or medium, I will propose ManageEngine. Secondly, I examine the capability of the organization. For example, if it is just an IT operation but they don't have an internal developer or systems expert, I might suggest using ManageEngine, but I also might recommend CA, AppDynamics, or Dynatrace. Lastly, I would examine the complexity of the application. If the application is not complex, I would recommend it. For example, if the application only has two or six components, I think ManageEngine is pretty nice. On a scale of one to seven I would give ManageEngine a seven.
Depending on the size of the environment, this is a solution that I recommend. You also have to be careful about how you deploy it. This is a good product, but right now, we have too many issues with stability. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
This solution covers 80-90% of our requirements, and that is fine for us. I would recommend this product to others looking for a solution in this realm.
