I like that you can build out a dashboard pretty quickly. There are some things that come out of the box that you don't really need to do, which is great because they're default settings.

I think better access to their engineers when we have a problem could be better.

Datadog has a lot of documentation, but a lot of that documentation assumes you know how the service works, which can lead to confusion.

Once agents are connected to the Datadog portal, we should be able to upgrade them quickly.

I find the training great. That said, it is set for the LCD (lowest common denominator). Of course, this is very helpful to sell the product, yet, to really utilize the product, you need to get more detailed.
