More DX SaaS Pros →

"Easy to deploy and simple to use.""Splunk is quite flexible for our customers. Splunk does not filter from a specific lock, you can define it later.""The correlation capabilities are the first value that our clients say they like with Splunk.""The logs on the solution are excellent.""I am satisfied with the support.""The most valuable features of the solution are it is straightforward to use and the documentation is good for finding out how to get the data you are looking for.""It's better than IBM, in my opinion, because it's an independent entity.""It is the best tool if you have a complex environment or if data ingestion is too huge."

Cons
"DX SaaS is a latecomer to the APM market. Some things that are straightforward in Dynatrace are complicated in DX. For example, upgrading the agents is a seamless process in Dynatrace, but it's a pain in DX SaaS. You should be able to upgrade in the Application Command Center. However, it is not working correctly."

More DX SaaS Cons →

"There is improvement needed when importing from some types of data sources.""The solution could improve by making it more business analysis oriented. The way it is now is designed more for developers.""The configuration could be better.""The implementation and the scanning of the logs can be difficult.""I find the graphical options really limited and you don't have enough control over how to display the data that you want to see."". Having a trial version or more training on Splunk would be helpful.""The support that is included with the standard licensing fee is very bad.""Splunk is query-based, which is not the case with most cybersecurity tools. It is based on search queries and can be difficult to use. It would be good if they can make it easier to understand how to create search queries. They can improve the knowledge base for better understanding. To create your dashboard, you need to have a search query. We have multiple firewalls in our company, and we need a dashboard for them. It would be helpful if a default firewall dashboard is included in Splunk to make monitoring easier. If a dashboard is available for a security device, the operation part will be more efficient. We won't have to follow a manual process for this."

    Questions from the Community
    Top Answer:It supports numerous platforms.
    Top Answer:If you compare CA with Dynatrace, in terms of pricing, my understanding from one of our customers is that CA is a lot cheaper.
    Top Answer:In terms of APM, CA is lacking in terms of its dashboards and the user interface is quite old. AI capability is quite important these days and could be an additional feature in the next release.

    Overview

    Dx SaaS is a solution whose goal is to ensure that businesses and organizations can monitor and manage the way that users experience their applications. This solution contains many powerful tools that are designed to give administrators the maximum amount of control over the experiences that clients have when employing their applications. Organizations and businesses can rest easily and ensure that the product they put out into the world is always being watched for potential issues that will be resolved proactively and quietly.

    Dx SaaS Benefits

    Some of the benefits that come from using Dx SaaS include:

    • Improve the overall experience of your users at all stages of their journey. Dx SaaS provides administrators with the ability to cull proactive insights into not only the actual performance of the application, but also the way that users are experiencing the application. This makes it possible for administrators to address pain points before they can become major issues.
    • Full visibility across all aspects of the application. Dx SaaS enables organizations to see what is going on in every part of their applications. Every aspect of the application is fully visible to them. They can keep track of both users and their IT infrastructure without having to rely on other solutions.
    • Run Dx SaaS flexibly. Users can run Dx SaaS from their premises, investing in hardware and software, if they so wish. Alternatively, users can run Dx SaaS as a pure SaaS-based solution if that is a better fit for their needs.

    Dx SaaS Features

    When users choose to employ the DX SaaS solution, they gain access to many different capabilities. These features include:

    • Relationship mapping capabilities. Users can visually represent all of the parts of the application and their relationships. This can aid administrators in understanding precisely how their applications, architecture, and networks operate.
    • Customizable dashboards. Administrators can build dashboards that are most suited to meet their needs, fine-tuning them to perform the analysis and functions that are most relevant to their objectives.
    • Root-cause analytical capability. DX SaaS makes it possible for users to find the causes of any and all issues that arise. Its analytical capabilities scan for anomalies and find issues early on. This gives administrators and IT professionals insights that enable them to keep applications running optimally.

It is designed in a way that empowers these companies to truly monitor their applications and maintain a positive user experience. DX SaaS recognizes that applications can be run on any number of platforms. As a result, solutions that monitor and analyze applications need to be capable of handling a wide variety of platforms. This is one of the considerations that the solution’s designers made integral to its design.

Patterns and areas where trouble can arise are immediately exposed so that administrators can take the steps that are necessary for the applications to run smoothly.
