"Azure Monitor is really just a source for Dynatrace. It's just collecting data and monitoring the environment and the infrastructure. It is fairly good at that."
"The solution is quite stable."
"The most valuable feature is that it's stable. It hasn't crossed any thresholds."
"Provides an overview and high-level information."
"We like this searchability and availability of the data."
"Azure Monitor is very stable."
"The most valuable feature is that it ensures our servers are up."
"Good load and metrics gathering and very good analysis."
"Straightforward to integrate and automate."
"Datadog has given us near-live visibility across our entire cloud platform."
"The most valuable feature is the dashboards that are provided out of the box, as well as ones we were able to configure."
"Its integration is most valuable because you can integrate it with various service providers such as AWS, .Net, etc."
"I like that you can build out a dashboard pretty quickly. There are some things that come out of the box that you don't really need to do, which is great because they're default settings."
"Because of our client focus, it is easy for us to sell. This is because it is easy to use and easy to set up."
"The most valuable feature of Datadog is its logs."
"Its logs are most valuable."
"Lacks information including details related to where problems lie."
"The price could be lower but it is not a must."
"In my opinion, they should improve the overall user experience, especially when it comes to indexing and searching collective logs."
"I'd like the solution to do more around vulnerability assessment. It's lacking in the product right now."
"Automation related to gathering metrics from more applications could be improved."
"The process of implementation needs to be easier."
"When something goes down, we want the option to have automation in place to get it back up again as quickly as possible."
"The troubleshooting logs need improvement. There should be some improvement there. I have a hard time finding the right logs at the right times whenever there is an issue occurring."
"The setup was a bit complex."
"Datadog does not have the feature where you can monitor external websites or check the SSL secure for websites."
"It could use some additional features when working with metrics like Grafana or like New Relic has. Datadog does not use library technologies like Dynatrace does. Datadog has machine learning too, but it does not have this option in all layers of monitoring like infrastructure service process in applications."
"Datadog has a lot of documentation, but a lot of that documentation assumes you know how the service works, which can lead to confusion."
"More pre-configured "Monitor Alerts" would be helpful."
"The incident management beta looks promising, but it is still missing the ability to automatically create incidents based on certain alerts."
"We have recently had a number of issues with stability and delays on logging, monitoring, metric evaluation, and alerts."
"Could be a little more user friendly."
