"The solution helps us provide a better user experience to our customers."
"AppDynamics is scalable."
"AppDynamics has been stable."
"The release management capabilities are great."
"AppDynamics' most valuable features are the response time of the business transaction modules, the ability to monitor multiple services, and testing and developing environments."
"It gives me the ability to trace logs between transactions, for example, a DB transaction or JVM transaction from one hub to the other. I can easily find out where the problem is or where the bottleneck of the issues lies."
"Technical support is helpful."
"Transition tracing is the most valuable is pretty easy and useful, but the user experience piece is also good."
"This solution is more applications reference architecture focused. Its benefit is that it specializes in that space."
"Not only can you look at the protocol import level. It also has a live PCAP analysis."
"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."
"AppDynamics' modules and hardware resources are very high."
"While it is scalable, it could be 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 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."
"The end-user experience is not really good because we can't catch all of the transactions. We only can catch the full stack of flow transactions, but I think that this is caused by the technology they use. If they will catch every transaction, it will cause a very big load on the performance of applications. The monitoring of all transactions needs improvement."
"AppDynamics's agent management could be improved."
"We'd like to see a local presence within the region in order to have seamless service whether it's the support, the implementation, or professional services."
"They either have to go broad or decide what their bread and butter is and get really good at that."

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.”
