It's more expensive than other solutions, but worth it. We use full APM monitoring on our primary systems, but only resource monitoring on lesser systems. We shift licenses around our environment when a deeper dive into lesser systems is required.

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.

Our annual costs were about the same for both AppDynamics and Dynatrace.

Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace is excellent.

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

Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was a pretty straightforward process. We had no hiccups. I think the pricing is at a fair value for what it is.

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.

* Pricing is still too expensive. * Their proof of concept is still a bit difficult.

They could improve their price ranges, as there is no option for startups or testing.

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.

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.
