We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The alert mechanism is quite accurate when something goes wrong in your system. For example, if you have hundreds of APIs on your server, and any of the APIs is not performing well, you get an alert. When there is a drop or change in the threshold value, the beauty of New Relic is that within a fraction of seconds, all the stakeholders who are configured in the New Relic system will get an alert. That's one good thing.""The breakdown of the response time of different components and getting in-depth details of the slow component are the most valuable features. It is easy to use, and it gets the job done.""The monitoring so far has been good and we are happy with it.""The simplicity of the dashboard is very good.""There are many valuable features in New Relic APM. We developed some software applications and we are able to monitor the errors very easily. Their log security retention is very good.""The VPN is one of the solution's most valuable features for us.""The stability of New Relic APM is very good.""The most valuable feature is application monitoring."

"Azure Monitor is very stable.""It is a robust, stable product.""Data exporting is easy, and this tool works seamlessly with other solutions. It's a stable and low-priced solution.""The most valuable features of Azure Monitor are the login analytics workspace and we can write any kind of custom queries in order to receive the data that is inserted into the login analytics workspace, diagnostic settings, et cetera.""It is a move-in powerful feature compared to other market-leading tools.""The feature that I found most valuable in Azure Monitor is its monitoring abilities. With Azure Monitor, you are able to monitor all of your cloud resources across multiple subscriptions in one dashboard and create solution-specific alerts that can trigger an email to the team responsible for that specific solution.""The solution works well overall. It's easy to implement and simple to use.""You can scale the product."

Cons
"They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive.""I haven't come across any features that are lacking.""New Relic APM can improve the information when we dig deeper to check a problem. There should be more detailed information provided.""The solution is quite expensive.""There has been some problem with the agent, and it is just not working well. It is not able to record information with the application server. They have been able to fix the issue, but it took quite a long time. This is the main issue in the APM products and also in New Relic. The mobile application monitoring has been pretty difficult to set up and also quite expensive. It should be a little bit easier and cheaper. Because it is pretty difficult and expensive, many customers don't take it.""It would be nice if there were pre-made dashboards.""How granular I could go down at looking at certain data, especially related to the operations, is limited.""The solution could improve by having more network monitoring features, such as for all the infrastructure."

More New Relic APM Cons →

"Lacks information including details related to where problems lie.""This solution could be improved with more out-of-the-box functionalities and artificial intelligence to complete event correlation.""Azure Monitor could improve the visualization aspect and integrate better with other third-party services.""If it is configured incorrectly, you can end up with a huge bill.""They need to work with other cloud providers - not just Azure.""Setting up this solution is complex. It's also missing the functionality of assigning alerts.""This solution has fewer features than some of its competitors, so adding more features to it would make it better.""Azure Monitor could improve network performance monitoring and make it more advanced."

More Azure Monitor Cons →

"In terms of the technology, I think they need to put some more advanced troubleshooting into SolarWinds, in terms of AI capabilities. That's the next generation, especially in the cases of APIs which have already adopted AI capabilities into their products."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The price was one of the reasons we chose this solution."
  • "I think the pricing is reasonable."
  • "The price of the solution could be less expensive. You have to pay a lot for each user. There is an additional cost for extra features."
  • "This is an expensive tool."
  • "The price of New Relic APM could be less expensive. We are using the New Relic APM pro account and it is more costly. When compared to competitors the solution's pricing should be much more realistic."
  • "If I remember it correctly, the pricing was based on the core, and the monthly subscription used to cost us $1,500 or $2,000. We had pre-prod and production services. Costing was different for pre-prod and production. For pre-prod, it was 40% less than the production service cost. It was a combined package."

  • "Mostly, it's a perpetual license. We don't have any customers using the subscription right now—it's mostly a perpetual license that the customers purchase. The licensing is based on the number of elements, whereas other solutions are node-based."
