We performed a comparison between Dynatrace and Splunk ITSI (IT Service Intelligence) based on real PeerSpot user reviews in five categories. After reading all of the collected data, you can find our conclusion below.
Comparison Results: Dynatrace outperforms Splunk ITSI in terms of AI capabilities, real user monitoring, session replay, and synthetic monitoring. It also offers good visibility and thorough scanning of services and applications. While Splunk ITSI is stable and easy to use, Dynatrace has more competitive pricing and has provided significant ROI through automation and decreased mean time to identification and repair.
"Smartscape is a valuable feature. They also have a technology named PurePath. PurePath is the distributed tracing data."
"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."
"This solution has helped our organization on multiple occasions. The synthetic monitor came in particularly handy."
"Dynatrace has multiple features that I need, but I love that you can analyze traffic, including any bottlenecks. I also find the tool user-friendly and has an easy-to-navigate interface."
"This is a stable solution."
"This monitoring capability gives us the ability to measure the end-user experience."
"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."
"Great for monitoring critical internal and public-facing applications."
"The glass tables are very helpful."
"The solution has been stable."
"One of the excellent features is the service analyzer, which is truly impressive."
"The most valuable features are the mapping of the entities, which provides a comprehensive analysis, and the service analyzer for thresholding."
"It's scalable and expands well."
"The solution is easy to scale."
"Splunk Episodes are valuable because it correlates and aggregates all the information, and you do not have one million events to look at and triage, so it is quite convenient."
"The feature that stood out to me most from Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI) was automated dashboarding or reporting. The solution lists the severity level of issues, and the response times."
"What needs improvement in Dynatrace is its dashboard. Creating dashboards in Dynatrace is good, but compared to Grafana, which is integrated with Broadcom DX APM, the resulting dashboard in Dynatrace isn't as clear. The Dynatrace dashboard needs to be more graphic."
"The licensing part is complicated or not transparent. It is very difficult to assess the number of licenses for a prospect. You have to do a PoC, and calculating the number of licenses for two years or three years is sometimes very difficult. It also depends on each case. There are multiple types of licenses. Sometimes, you need only one of them, and sometimes, you need all of them. This is an area for improvement."
"The solution could improve by allowing more dashboards customization. This would allow us to monitor the metric better."
"Network monitoring is lacking and could be improved."
"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."
"It would help if Dynatrace allowed more features that work with metrics like Grafana or New Relic."
"I believe that something related to IoT devices should be improved."
"They're doing vulnerability assessments of the application stack by using OneAgent. It's a never-ending story if you are trying to be sure your application is also secure."
"The solution should integrate more features in NEAP."
"I believe the refresh time should be faster."
"Microservices is the only area where Splunk ITSI can be improved. When things come from one EC2 instance to another, there's a lack of exposure to microservices, so we can't know what's happening. Apart from that, it's doing pretty well."
"Integration is the most critical area to improve in Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI). It wasn't a great experience because you had to do a little back and forth to integrate the solution."
"Splunk ITSI lacks out-of-the-box solutions for enterprise users."
"The data recovery has room for improvement."
"It is pretty okay. I am not sure whether the current release has already moved to the new framework where instead of the glass tables, we can directly use the Dashboard Studio. It would be nice to have that integrated into the same framework."
"We're using predictive analytics, and there are three or four algorithms. It would be helpful if this process were more standardized and scalable."
