Because of our client focus, it is easy for us to sell. This is because it is easy to use and easy to set up.

I have found error reporting and log centralization the most valuable features. Overall, Datadog provides a full package solution.

The most valuable features are the dashboards and the reporting.

The application performance monitoring is pretty good.

I have found some of the most valuable features to be the way things all come together that gives us a point of view that is useful. The panel is very beautiful and customizable.

The visibility that it provides is valuable. It is helping in being proactive around incident management. It is helping us to be able to get more visibility into our customers' applications so that we can assist them at the application layer. We also provide them the infrastructure from an AWS standpoint. We are able to make sure that our customers are aware of certain critical things around the analytical piece of either the network or the application. We're able to call customers before they even know about the issue. From there, we can start putting together some change management processes and help them a bit.

I like that you can build out a dashboard pretty quickly. There are some things that come out of the box that you don't really need to do, which is great because they're default settings.

Datadog has given us near-live visibility across our entire cloud platform.

The ability to send notifications based on metadata from the monitor is helpful.

The fact that everything is under a single pane of glass is really valuable, as developers don't have to spend their time copying correlation IDs across tools to find what they need.

The most valuable features are logging, the extensive set of integrations, and easy jumpstart.

Having a wealth of information has helped us investigate outages, and having historical data helps us tune our system.

Having a clear view, not only of our infrastructure but our apps and services as well, has brought a great added value to our customers.

The most valuable feature is the dashboards that are provided out of the box, as well as ones we were able to configure.

Datadog's ability to group and visualize the servers and the data makes it relatively easy for the root cause analysis.

This is definitely a good product and I would consider them one of the leaders within the application monitoring and cloud monitoring space.

The integration and configuration are incredibly simple. The SaaS offering is remarkably easy to set up, especially if you're coming from a Graphite environment or anything that uses a StatsD.

If we have a large load for users using our basic Datadog, it will immediately fire off an alert notifying us either something's wrong or not.

It has scaled great. I haven't run into any problems anywhere that I've used it. They have handled everything that we have needed them to.

It provides more cloud data. They tend to just get the way a service would be designed on the cloud.

Using the data, our operation teams works with the dashboards to get their statistics, analytics, etc.

We have a better grasp of what is occurring during the deployment cycle. If something fails, we have an idea what has failed, where it has failed, and how it failed to better mitigate the situation.

I don't have to worry about upgrades with the AWS version.

Their interface is probably one of the easiest things to use because it lets non-developers and non-engineers quickly get access to metrics and pull business value out of them. We could put together dashboards and give it to people who are non-technical, then they can see the state of the world.
