Cons
"I haven't come across any features that are lacking.""The solution could improve by having more network monitoring features, such as for all the infrastructure.""The product has good documentation for Linux, however, their documentation for Windows is lacking substantially. It's something they need to develop.""It would be nice if there were pre-made dashboards.""New Relic APM can improve the information when we dig deeper to check a problem. There should be more detailed information provided.""They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive.""It is very difficult to award the service level cycles at an endpoint level.""How granular I could go down at looking at certain data, especially related to the operations, is limited."

"AppOptics would benefit from having a much more centralized view.""In terms of the technology, I think they need to put some more advanced troubleshooting into SolarWinds, in terms of AI capabilities. That's the next generation, especially in the cases of APIs which have already adopted AI capabilities into their products."
