Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"With Instana, the interface and the UI are very simple to use.""The detailing of our application behavior and user experience is most valuable. In case there is an issue, we typically use Instana to figure it out. We can drill down to the application and figure out what's going on and where the issue is.""The overall capabilities are the most valuable.""Instana is very fast to implement and deploy because the dashboards are automated and don't need configuration."

"ManageEngine Applications Manager maintains the historical data and it's easy for us to analyze the trends and patterns and fix them accordingly.""Its price and the flexibility to deploy are the most valuable. Flexibility is very important, and you can scale from very basic to more complex. This solution is a part of a complete suite of management tools. So, it can be integrated with other solutions for monitoring networks, which is very important. You can expand it or interconnect it with many other tools, which is a powerful feature. We have a very good and long relationship with ManageEngine support guys. They provide very good support for us.""ITSM is a valuable feature, it complies with the requirements in Pakistan."

Cons
"The integration could be improved with more plugins or open API.""I think that Instana should improve the university and the certification process, so the users can find experts in Instana with their certification module process.""The configuration of Instana Dynamic APM needs improvement because it requires quite a bit of work.""We should be able to go back to scenarios during or before the issue. There should be something like a history playback. Such a feature or functionality would be good."

"They can improve the post-processing of the data. AppDynamics has more powerful tools for post-processing or analytics. It has some limitations in more complex environments, but because we are free to use different solutions, we try to find what is best for the customers or the problem we are trying to solve.""Lacks an SIEM solution which can be found in other products.""They could probably rearrange the UI so that it would be easy for people who are new to the Application Manager to configure things."
