We performed a comparison between AppDynamics and AppDynamics Mobile Real-User Monitoring based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Mobile APM solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"It is easy to gain visibility into complex environments with AppDynamics. It has the ability to combine operation information of the environment and business information with strong business IQ support."
"It is a good monitoring tool. Its stability is very good."
"Once you get past installation, AppDynamics is highly stable and we get good results."
"The release management capabilities are great."
"We're a large organization, so we appreciate AppDynamics' wide coverage. It may not work in all areas, but it has broad coverage. We can use the same dataset for different use case aspects. That is the beauty of AppDynamics. You can coordinate APM, EUM, and infrastructure through one dataset."
"AppDynamics has been stable."
"AppDynamics is scalable."
"AppDynamics' best feature is automation - for example, when I add a note, it can understand the data automatically."
"We have found the scalability to be quite good."
"There are many features that are very valuable to us, but the ability to monitor the status of the users' experience in real-time is one of them."
"AppDynamics's agent management could be improved."
"The dashboard can be better. Also, the automated reports could be improved."
"The overall performance of this solution could be improved. The hot-hot infrastructure features could also be improved."
"If AppDynamics could do a one-agent function with their actual monitoring effectiveness, it will be the greatest tool."
"At this time, we don't have much visibility on the virtual environment, monitoring, and all other things. We have visibility only for database monitoring, and we have noticed performance impact when deploying database agents on the database server. We got to know this from AppDynamics support also that we should not deploy database agents from the database server. When agents are deployed on the same server and the database is monitored from there, we are not getting database server metrics. Therefore, we don't have those insights, and sometimes, we struggle because of that. They can improve this functionality so that we do not have a performance impact, and we can deploy anywhere. This would help us a lot. In terms of end-user monitoring, currently, it is not working for us because there are some complexities. It is a little complicated, and it takes a little bit of time to understand where you need to make changes. It would be very helpful if they can provide some template designs for end-user monitoring. When our servers are running on VMs, we don't get many insights from the VM side. I don't know whether it is possible to have visibility beyond the database, server, and application and whether there are some features where we can deploy AppDynamics on VMs as well. Such functionality would give us more control over storage, VM, OS, and database. It will also provide complete visibility of our hardware and software."
"The solution could be more user-friendly for diagnostic purposes. Anyone who is using the solution should be able to infer what that error is about, they should be able to troubleshoot it better."
"Its resiliency can be improved. We're told that the best we can do with an on-prem solution is to have a hot standby that requires a manual switchover. So, it is a do-it-yourself Ikea model of maintaining data consistency between two servers, without having low balance or failover considerations for an on-prem solution."
"The solution could improve by covering more technologies. For example, it does support .NET Core applications. However, it could be a bit better."
"I would like to see a better way to automate actions based on the events generated by the tool."
"There may be some older technologies that are still covered, however, it's not as plug-and-play. You can still do it, however, it takes slightly more effort for engineers to cover old technologies such as C++, Delphi, and so on. It still can be done. It's just not as easy as, for example, covering Java."

Reviews from Real Users
Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by PeerSpot users currently using the AppDynamics solution.
Chandan K., Associate Director at a financial services firm, says, “The tracing is the most important aspect of the solution. The way it traces the information within the particular application or within the particular infrastructure is great. That actually helps. Apart from that, all of the data that's in the production APM is good.”
PeerSpot user, Yacin H., Responsable Commercial at Zen Networks, mentions, “You can use one module for each server, for each application, and for each API”. He also adds, “With the solution you can put add-ons on it and it's very customizable. You can customize it easily. If you want something that the tool doesn't have, you can add it easily.”
Another reviewer, a Head Of Information Technology at a mining and metals company expresses, "The solution helps us save a lot of time on certain tasks. The dashboards of the solution are excellent. The stability is good.”
David G., Systems Engineer at a tech services company, states, “The solution has beneficial application analysis, is highly scalable, and has a great ROI.”
