Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The initial setup is easy.""If you look in the APM sector, it is a very nice package to install.""Dynatrace is stable.""We like the on-premises platform and the horizontal scalability.""With the Agentless monitoring and ability to create custom plugins, we've been able to transform the tool not just into a great APM solution but a really good enterprise monitoring solution too.""Its monitoring and key purpose capabilities are the most valuable. It provides the root cause of problems and helps peers join the war room.""Dynatrace has reduced our total headcount in operations and the mean time to detect and resolve problems. As a result, those challenging offline times are much shorter, if not non-existent, because of this solution.""The solution is amazing, it does well when you need to use it."

"Provides agentless monitoring so there's no need to install the agent on each server.""It has good monitoring capabilities across cloud environments, data centers, and hybrid environments.""I'm satisfied with ScienceLogicfor for what they can offer today because they can offer both serverless connectivity and agent connectivity.""When it comes to features, the power pack is the most valuable.""The power flow is great.""The best feature is the highly flexible graphs.""It is simple.""It is very easy to configure because we are using an agent-less version. You can very quickly implement a collector for monitoring device servers."

More ScienceLogic Pros →

Cons
"The user interface for the management functions is not particularly intuitive for even the most common features.""The solution could improve by allowing more dashboards customization. This would allow us to monitor the metric better.""Dynatrace could be improved by having a fully functional applications and infrastructure monitoring feature. Their existing stack, which is SNMP-based, does not have full infrastructure monitoring, whereas if we compare it with other solutions like New Relic or Datadog, they have moved into infrastructure monitoring. The second improvement I would suggest is in regards to the cost. So far, Dynatrace is the most expensive APM that we sell, even compared to New Relic. I think they can improve a little bit in terms of the license pricing.""An area for improvement would be security. In the next release, I'd like to see more network-centric capabilities - Dynatrace is good at the network level, but I have to leverage other network solutions and integrate with them, but a holistic approach including the network as a one-stop-shop would be great.""The documentation of Dynatrace needs to be improved. There needs to be a more detailed description and additional examples for background understanding for beginners trying to use it.""Due to the fact that you doing a lot, you have a problem with the learning curve. We're really looking for ways to make this product more accessible.""There should be more visibility for network performance monitoring. There should be more metrics for things like 5G and IoT. That would be the main thing because they've moved more to mobile performance rather than fixed networks.""The flexibility when it comes to integrating with other tools is very low."

More Dynatrace Cons →

"There are often bugs in new releases.""We want to understand: how does the back end work? What if some problem occurs? What we can do? They need to provide more information.""ScienceLogic does not have application monitoring. We definitely need something integrated within ScienceLogic to monitor applications so that we don't have to rely on monitoring tools to monitor other applications. At least the ones that are market leaders, such as SAP, Oracle, and others.""They need a little more self-service.""It was challenging onboarding users.""It doesn't have the complete application-level topology. It could have service topology and business service monitoring. I would like to see how business service monitoring will function with agent-based installation, and how flexible and business-oriented it is for service modeling and service infrastructure. I have a lot of experience in using business service monitoring, service topology, and service hierarchy functionalities in similar products from BMC and Micro Focus (OpenView), and I want to see how these functionalities will look like in ScienceLogic.""From a performance perspective, it needs to improve a lot."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Dynatrace has a place for everybody. How you use it and what your budgetary limitations are will dictate what you do with it. But it's within everybody's reach. If you're a small organization and you have a large infrastructure, you may not be able to monitor the whole thing. You may have to pick and choose what you want to monitor, and you have the ability to do so. Your available funds are going to dictate that."
  • "I think that the price is reasonable."
  • "We have a three-year contract. We have 30 licenses for the full stack and 3 licenses for the DEM unit."
  • "There is a license cost, which is obviously more expensive than an open-source solution, but for the return on investment from what you get from it, it's a great investment. Of course, it could always be cheaper."
  • "Financially Dynatrace was a lot more expensive than AppDynamics."
  • "The price of the solution is expensive."
  • "The price range is quite high."
  • "Its price is quite high. Although it is worth it, it would be better if its price is reduced. They base their prices around licensing. Their prices are based on agent licensing and consumption licensing. Both of these can be a bit cheaper, but if they are the best in the market, as I consider them to be, I assume that their prices will be higher. They are delivering the product for that price."

  • "Its price could be lower, but for what you pay, you got a lot of value from its features and functionalities. Customers always want a discount or a cheaper solution."
  • "The pricing model for ScienceLogic could improve."
  • "The solution is license-based. It's between $8 and $15, depending on what you need from the product."
  • "I'm not the best person to discuss pricing, but what I do know is that it's a use-and-go structure. You use this much storage and pay this much for it. That's how it is. Every time, we continue to add a large amount of data to the environment."

    Reviews from Real Users

    Dynatrace is the only solution that provides answers to organizations based on deep insight into each user, transaction, and organization's environment.

    Barry P., a managing performance engineer at Medica Health Plans, writes, "With Dynatrace, we have synthetic checks and real-user monitoring of all of our websites, places where members and providers can interact with us over the web. We monitor the response times of those with Dynatrace, and it's all integrated into one place."

    A consultant at a tech service company notes, "A feature that's one of the highlights of Dynatrace is the AI. The second most valuable feature is OneAgent. Between infrastructures, applications, operating systems, you can deploy with just a single agent and can practically install and forget about it."
