"Working with the solution is very easy. It's user-friendly."
"The VPN is one of the solution's most valuable features for us."
"We like the performance of the product."
"The simplicity of the dashboard is very good."
"The stability of New Relic APM is very good."
"It does everything we wanted it to do."
"The monitoring so far has been good and we are happy with it."
"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 product allows us to build preferred/customized business transactions to track complex transactions. UEM (User Experience Monitoring) agents track user experience on webRequests. The advantage is that Dynatrace correlates the measures on the devices with those on the backend servers, giving us an end-to-end view of the transaction, from the user's phone deep into the backend servers."
"If you look in the APM sector, it is a very nice package to install."
"It helps to improve code efficiency and has quicker performance analysis."
"A very powerful solution for the end user."
"It is a very good APM tool. There is a lot of thorough scanning of services and applications. It has got great monitoring features."
"The solution can be deployed quickly on-prem. Once it's deployed, you can use discovery and review the process and service on this application."
"The agent deployment is the most valuable. You don't need to do any configuration. You just deploy the agents, and it can automatically detect your infrastructure. That was the greatest feature that we saw in Dynatrace. If there is any database, it can detect it automatically and present everything to you."
"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."
"For us, the ease of deployment in combination with TMZ was the most important part because we don't have to manually deploy a complex monitoring solution. We can more or less do that with the click of a button, and we are not dependent on the developers to provide us with all the necessary features and functions to make that work. We can just deploy it on a workload cluster and monitor at least a good part of the workload. If we want to go into detail, we clearly need to make changes, but for a good part of application monitoring, it gives us good insights."
"The solution is quite expensive."
"New Relic APM can improve the information when we dig deeper to check a problem. There should be more detailed information provided."
"New Relic APM could improve error debugging and the correlation with the logs. We are receiving some alerts or alarms but we need to correlate with the error log, but it is difficult if it is more than seven months retention period, it is hard to trace. We need this especially for getting historical information."
"They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive."
"It is very difficult to award the service level cycles at an endpoint level."
"The solution could improve by having more network monitoring features, such as for all the infrastructure."
"It would be nice if there were pre-made dashboards."
"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."
"Its pricing could be better. Dynatrace has an option to monitor the end users to see what they are doing, but it required a separate license and had an additional cost. It was coming out to be expensive, because of which we didn't use the feature."
"Infrastructure monitoring could be improved."
"When it comes to monitoring, we did the integration with VMware vCenter, and we were able to see some good stuff. The VMware vCenter integration was really great, but what we really missed was the integration with the network management stuff such as Cisco ACI. We wanted to see integration in that area, but it was not provided by Dynatrace. So, the main feature for us is integration with things like Cisco ACI. If they can bring that one in, with vCenter in there, it would be a total solution. It would be absolutely incomparable to anything else in the market."
"It could be more affordable and therefore, more widely used by including more features like DEM as part of licensing cost rather than an additional expense."
"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."
"The usability is worse than it used to be."
"Dashboards and monitoring capabilities can be improved for monitoring applications in Azure. In Azure, it would be cool to be able to monitor network consumption as well as flow communication."
"The user interface for the management functions is not particularly intuitive for even the most common features."
"Its billing model is consumption-based. I understand the consumption-based model, but it is not necessarily easy to estimate and guess how many points or how much we are going to consume on a specific application up until we get to that point. So, for us, it would be helpful to have more insights or predictability into what we can expect from a cost perspective if we are starting to use specific features. This can potentially also drive our consumption a bit more."

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."
VMware Tanzu Observability is a high-performance streaming analytics platform. It enables observability for metrics, counters, histograms, and traces/spans. Because it scales to very large data ingestion rates and query loads, the product is unique in its field. You can collect data from a variety of services and sources across your entire application stack, as well as examine details for earlier ingested data. After sending your data to your Wavefront instance, you may examine your data on custom dashboards, receive alerts on problem values, and do anomaly detection and forecasting.
VMware Tanzu Observability can support over 200 integrations, including cloud providers, DevOps tools, big data, and others. You can utilize the platform’s sophisticated Graphical User Interface to connect with the Wavefront service, which includes several pre-built dashboards, charts, and alerts. SDKs, the Wavefront REST API, and CLIs are also accessible on our Github website. Additionally, there are tight integrations with Spring Boot, Kubernetes, and Tanzu Mission Control.
