"We like this searchability and availability of the data."
"The most valuable feature is that it ensures our servers are up."
"Azure Monitor is very stable."
"The solution is quite stable."
"Good load and metrics gathering and very good analysis."
"Provides an overview and high-level information."
"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 works well overall. It's easy to implement and simple to use."
"The most valuable features are logging, the extensive set of integrations, and easy jumpstart."
"Sometimes it's more user friendly for development teams. There are some parts of Datadog that are more understandable for development teams. For example, the APM in Datadog works more manually and works like the tools in New Relic or Grafana, or Elastic. It is easier to understand for software development teams."
"The visibility that it provides is valuable. It is helping in being proactive around incident management. It is helping us to be able to get more visibility into our customers' applications so that we can assist them at the application layer. We also provide them the infrastructure from an AWS standpoint. We are able to make sure that our customers are aware of certain critical things around the analytical piece of either the network or the application. We're able to call customers before they even know about the issue. From there, we can start putting together some change management processes and help them a bit."
"This is definitely a good product and I would consider them one of the leaders within the application monitoring and cloud monitoring space."
"I have found error reporting and log centralization the most valuable features. Overall, Datadog provides a full package solution."
"The fact that everything is under a single pane of glass is really valuable, as developers don't have to spend their time copying correlation IDs across tools to find what they need."
"The most valuable features are the dashboards and the reporting."
"Its integration is most valuable because you can integrate it with various service providers such as AWS, .Net, etc."
"When something goes down, we want the option to have automation in place to get it back up again as quickly as possible."
"The price could be lower but it is not a must."
"Automation related to gathering metrics from more applications could be improved."
"Lacks information including details related to where problems lie."
"In my opinion, they should improve the overall user experience, especially when it comes to indexing and searching collective logs."
"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 process of implementation needs to be easier."
"I'd like the solution to do more around vulnerability assessment. It's lacking in the product right now."
"I think better access to their engineers when we have a problem could be better."
"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 does not have the feature where you can monitor external websites or check the SSL secure for websites."
"While I like the ease of use, when compared with Tenable Nessus they could still improve their usability."
"The setup was a bit complex."
"The Log Explorer could be better. I don't think it has log manipulation as Splunk does."
"The incident management beta looks promising, but it is still missing the ability to automatically create incidents based on certain alerts."
"The error traceability is an area that can be improved."
