Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The transaction tracking feature from IBM is the most important feature for us. It is something that provides a terrific value for us and our clients. It has a lot of data sources and agents that are collectors. It is also stable.""IBM Application Performance Management helped us increased our response time by 80% and cost 60% less.""Because we have partnerships with other partners, I can share a bit about what I've noticed with IBM APM compared to other vendor solutions. Specifically, with IBM, the visibility into detailed process information is more tangible. On the OS level, APM displays all processes (or the top 10 processes) that are consuming CPU or resident memory. This is the most important thing that is not always available with other vendors.""It's easy to use."

Cons
"The demo that was provided to us is not working very well. At times, there are errors.""Its web user interface is a little bit old in comparison to other solutions, such as New Relic, and it should be improved. Its scalability and technical support should also be improved. Currently, it is scalable, but only in a vertical way. They provide good technical support, but the initial steps for a new case can be improved to fasten the resolution process.""It's still missing some platforms. For example, if you look to applications itself, it is missing the interface.""With APM, we noticed that the agent can cause a lot of issues for the application, making the agent very unreliable. Many issues are happening, and we've had to discuss it with support to try and get a fix. It affects application availability, and sometimes actions fail because of the agent, degrading the performance of the application."

"I would be very interested in having transaction traceability included in the product, to give us a better view of what is really going wrong in a particular method and action.""SiteScope isn't productive if you want to monitor RAM or if you want to monitor some URL.""It may lack some features other products in the category have like more detailed transaction tracking."
