Pros
"With Instana, the interface and the UI are very simple to use.""The overall capabilities are the most valuable."

More Instana Dynamic APM Pros →

"For banking and telecom solutions, it's been quite useful.""The most valuable feature of Micro Focus Diagnostics is the information reported from an application that has timed out. For example, when you're Googling, or you're booking a ticket for Burj Khalifa here, the longest tower in the world, there are situations where the system can time out. There are times when you might not receive a response on the payment gateway or you are not able to find the reservation. The customer only receives the information that the session has timed out."
