"The breakdown of the response time of different components and getting in-depth details of the slow component are the most valuable features. It is easy to use, and it gets the job done."
"The most valuable feature is application monitoring."
"The monitoring so far has been good and we are happy with it."
"Working with the solution is very easy. It's user-friendly."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to receive in-depth information about applications. It can detect a lot of important information."
"The simplicity of the dashboard is very good."
"The VPN is one of the solution's most valuable features for us."
"It does everything we wanted it to do."
"This solution has numerous advantages. It's extremely simple to configure. Either digital monitors or single-URL monitors are simple to configure and build."
"If there are any issues, it triggers an alert within 30 seconds. When it triggers the alert, we go ahead and check it immediately. The alert is triggered on a real-time basis."
"The best feature of AlertSite is that it shows you a visual graph and also sends you notifications about errors, so you get immediate notifications about errors which means that your support team can start taking steps and more quickly make sure the site is up and that customer experience isn't interrupted in terms of using your system and your products. AlertSite is a very good tool. It's user-friendly, and you can see everything on the dashboard. Configuring it is also easy."
"It is useful for analytics, web performance, end-to-end coverage of a user experience, and database analytics. It is absolutely a monitoring tool that is worth having. The visibility that it provides is a unique feature of this product."
"They have a feature that allows you to monitor the user, and we are able to create a VIP customer."
"The most valuable features are ease of deployment, UI, and collected data. Its deployment is really easy. In just a few hours, you can have a very good outcome, and you can see everything, which is very valuable. It collects a good amount of data."
"Having OneAgent is the most valuable feature of Dyantrace, as well as the monitoring."
"Once you are trained on the solution, it's easy to navigate. It's got very good documentation and training offerings."
"Smartscape is a valuable feature. They also have a technology named PurePath. PurePath is the distributed tracing data."
"The most useful features are cloud monitoring, application monitoring, and alert notifications."
"Dynatrace helped us with root cause analysis of poor performing components of our applications."
"The older view is much better than the new view that they have. We'd like to go back to that previous version. The user interface just isn't as nice as it used to be."
"New Relic APM can improve the information when we dig deeper to check a problem. There should be more detailed information provided."
"I haven't come across any features that are lacking."
"It would be nice if there were pre-made dashboards."
"How granular I could go down at looking at certain data, especially related to the operations, is limited."
"They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive."
"It is very difficult to award the service level cycles at an endpoint level."
"The solution could improve by having more network monitoring features, such as for all the infrastructure."
"What needs improvement in AlertSite is the documentation, particularly the lack of documentation. If there's a specific activity you want to do, you can't even find information on how to do it, so you have to contact the AlertSite support team to assist you, and only then would the issue be resolved. At the moment, it's not easy to find or get full documentation on how to deal with different issues. You always have to go back to AlertSite support and get help. The documentation for AlertSite could be improved and it's what I'd like to see in the next release of the tool because at the moment, the documentation isn't complete, so you'll have to contact support, but contacting support isn't an issue because the team responds to you quickly."
"AlertSite sometimes triggers false alerts or fake alerts, which needs to be rectified. When we see an alert and go ahead and run certain tests on it, the test always passes. However, on the main screen, it shows up as critical. Therefore, the false alert needs to be fixed."
"It is not compatible with all of the product platforms that we use."
"Its price, for sure, should be improved. Its price is quite high. Other than the price, there are always improvements to be made as technologies change. When we move into cloud-based technologies, Dynatrace will also have to adapt so that they can monitor those as well. It should have the adaptability to quickly transform to monitor those new technologies."
"There should be more visibility for network performance monitoring. There should be more metrics for things like 5G and IoT. That would be the main thing because they've moved more to mobile performance rather than fixed networks."
"Due to the fact that you doing a lot, you have a problem with the learning curve. We're really looking for ways to make this product more accessible."
"The user interface for the management functions is not particularly intuitive for even the most common features."
"Its infra monitoring is not that good. They are mainly into the APM environment, such as network monitoring and other things. Strong end-to-end infrastructure monitoring is missing. SNMP monitoring is currently not very good in this solution."
"Pretty much every month there are new features. However, its information on those new features is scarce."
"I believe that something related to IoT devices should be improved."
"We'd like it to be more user-friendly, which, in our case, might be a big ask as we have a fairly complex environment."
