"The solution works well overall. It's easy to implement and simple to use."
"The solution is quite stable."
"The most valuable feature is that it ensures our servers are up."
"Good load and metrics gathering and very good analysis."
"We like this searchability and availability of the data."
"Provides an overview and high-level information."
"Azure Monitor is very stable."
"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."
"One of the most valuable features is threat hunting. We can do threat hunting and identify if there is any malicious activity happening within our environment, which is a key feature for us."
"It provides a lot of analytics with the underlying AI engine, and it is a lot easier than other solutions. There are some products that do automated AI-based detection and drawing up charts, but for network monitoring and all of the monitoring aspects, it is quite a nice tool. It is very convenient for business users because they get more or less a lot of data readily available. If you're familiar with the Splunk query language, you can pretty much do whatever you want."
"The scalability of the solution is amazing because it can collect a lot of data and you can have your own structure to monitor this data."
"There are quite a lot of things that we find useful. Splunk agents are useful and good. Its UI is quite impressive."
"The initial setup isn't overly complex."
"It's basically one of the best SIEM products on the market."
"Great platform with user-friendly interface and GUI."
"The ability to analyze huge amounts of sales data and accurate prediction of sales forecasting is the most valuable feature."
"The process of implementation needs to be easier."
"There are a lot of things that take more time to do, such as charting, alerting, and correlation of data, and things like that. Azure Monitor doesn't tell you why something happened. It just tells you that it happened. It should also have some type of AI. Environments and applications are becoming more and more complex every day with hundreds or thousands of microservices. Therefore, having to do a lot of the stuff manually takes a lot of time, and on top of that, troubleshooting issues takes a lot of time. The traditional method of troubleshooting doesn't really work for or apply to this environment we're in. So, having an AI-based system and the ability to automate deployments of your monitoring and configurations makes it much easier."
"I'd like the solution to do more around vulnerability assessment. It's lacking in the product right now."
"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."
"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."
"Lacks information including details related to where problems lie."
"The price of the solution could be cheaper."
"Splunk is more expensive than other solutions."
"It currently has limited default rules and customizations. If they can concentrate more on the compliance part and the security information part, it would be helpful. The platform part is good, but it requires many features from the security aspect."
"Endpoint access is the only issue I can think to mention, even though the endpoint access we have with Cisco is fine."
"The solution could improve by making it more business analysis oriented. The way it is now is designed more for developers."
"It could be more user friendly, in terms of the end-user experience."
"It needs integration with a configuration management solution."
"You do need a lot of training and certification with this product."
