"It helped to find quick solutions for specific business transactions."
"The solution helps us save a lot of time on certain tasks."
"The features that I like best are the dashboard and Business Journey."
"This is a stable product and we definitely plan to continue using it in the future."
"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."
"In 2014 and 2015, AppDynamics was one of the best products on the market."
"AppDynamics is easy to implement if you follow the documentation, and the documentation that they provide is good."
"The business transaction that stands between multiple applications is proving to be most valuable."
"The most valuable feature is the extensibility, as there are really no limits as to what you can do with it."
"It's easy to use."
"It is a user-friendly product that requires almost no maintenance."
"Because it's Windows-based, it actually reports quite well. It reports everything you can think of on the Windows server and allows you to monitor anything. It's excellent for those in the Windows world as it's very good at it."
"We have found the scalability capabilities to be okay."
"They have great integration with the active directory."
"Availability monitoring is the feature I have found most valuable, as well as the capacity and ability to send notifications."
"It discovers the components automatically, which is a fantastic thing. The discovery works in an automatic way, and it has a dynamic way of discovering the components, assets, and applications. It doesn't require any manual intervention."
"AppDynamics is dealing with a lot of products and technologies, so we need to have clear documentation."
"While it is scalable, it could be better."
"Installation and configuration can be very tough. An average user without specialized knowledge can't do this. You need to have DevOps and QA teams handle it. During installation, a lot of customers get stuck trying to track the database or the API part, and they have to contact customer support."
"The training on the dashboards that is provided could be a little bit better, as could the use cases. They should have some good examples out there. As it is right now, I had to scour YouTube to find some stuff."
"I would like to see more artificial intelligence and machine learning brought in to monitor the statement and payment sum issues we have."
"The solution could improve by covering more technologies. For example, it does support .NET Core applications. However, it could be a bit better."
"The worst part is that the AppDynamics SaaS Environment has a lot of downtimes, and AppDynamics, despite our efforts, does not give us any feedback on these downtimes/incidents."
"The initial setup could be easier."
"System Center just provided upgrade and update features for Windows clients, and Windows systems, and did not support Linux, Android, or iOS, and other operating systems. They need to provide better integration with other operating systems if they don't already."
"It would be a much better product if Microsoft provided management packs with the product."
"The solution should be more user-friendly and offer a better user interface."
"In terms of features that could be improved, I would say the agent integration into the operating system. We are having difficulties integrating Linux into some of the networking devices."
"The initial setup should be easier to complete."
"The dashboard features are not user-friendly for our management team, only for the technical department."
"I would like to see them improve their network monitoring."
"I would like more customized reports. People should have some customization option on the dashboards for whenever they put multiple lists into it. Beyond customizing the content, there should be the ability to customize the colors so that they can engage some priority and mark challenges separately."
