Easy-to-use, simple look and feel
One thing New Relic needs to improve is the user data schema. It wanted us to move from version one to version two, but that was difficult because we wanted to do single sign-on, and it couldn't support our Ping Identity platform. That's something New Relic needs to work on. Another issue I have with New Relic is its suite licenses. It has a two-tier system: the full-stack observability, which requires a suite license, and the free version, which doesn't offer any peer review capabilities. It needs to change because having a suite license for a user who can only view the post-stack, not even the curated view, is a big no-no. Dynatrace or SAP don't have this issue. I should point out one more thing about New Relic. We use it with OpenShift, and one of the issues we faced was that New Relic required root access, which was a concern because no admin in the world would give any third-party vendor root access. However, they seem to have corrected this in the next version.

Pricing and Cost Advice

"Because of budget, we are not using the mobile app part of this tool."
"I rate the product price a five on a scale of one to ten, where one means cheap, and ten means very expensive."
"I recommend using the free version of New Relic. If you like the free version and understand its importance for your company, you can move to the trial. Then, you can migrate to the paid version."
"The solution is quite expensive. It costs around $5,000 a month. There aren't any additional costs above that."
"The price of New Relic could improve. It is expensive."
"The pricing could be better. We did not purchase the full version. Maybe if we applied all the other features of the full version of New Relic, we could get all the features that we feel are missing."
"I think the pricing is reasonable."
"The pricing is fine."

Questions from the Community

Any advice about APM solutions?
There are many factors and we know little about your requirements (size of org, technology stack, management systems, the scope of implementation). Our goal was to consolidate APM and infra monitor...
What do you like most about New Relic?
It allows the restriction of privileges and control of users.
What needs improvement with New Relic?
The solution only supports the cloud platform and not on-premises. Therefore, they should assess supporting the licensing on-premises as well.
