I'm using the latest version of Broadcom DX Application Performance Management. Within my company, 200 people use Broadcom DX Application Performance Management, in particular, developers, operators, and IT managers. Only one person is required for the deployment and maintenance of the solution. I would recommend Broadcom DX Application Performance Management to others looking into implementing it. As a whole, I'm rating Broadcom DX Application Performance Management eight out of ten. I'm not giving it a nine or a ten because there's still some improvement needed. My company is not a reseller nor a partner of Broadcom DX Application Performance Management. My company is just a customer.

My advice to those wanting to implement this solution is to do many sanity tests before doing the deployment. It's very hard to find the issue and a high possibility of issues when doing the deployment. I rate Broadcom DX Application Performance Management a six out of ten.

Currently, I'm using AppDynamics and CA APM. It's Broadcom DX Application Performance Management which is similar to AppDynamics and Dynatrace, but I'm currently using AppDynamics. It's for application performance management. I was involved in the integration of this solution and moving from the lower version: CA APM which was version 10.7, to the new version 20.2 which is now Broadcom DX Application Performance Management. Out of all the APM tools I've worked with, I prefer Broadcom DX Application Performance Management the most, followed by AppDynamics. We're using the Enterprise license for this solution. What I'd like to tell people who are looking into using this solution is that sometimes when we raise issues and open tickets with them, they'll say that the issue will be resolved in the next release. We have to wait for the next release before they are able to solve the issues, instead of solving them more quickly. It is their tool so they should be able to give the right solutions faster. They should not keep saying that the issue will be resolved in the next release. We've experienced this a few times. I can't think of additional features I'd like to see in the next release of this solution as it is similar to other APM tools. AppDynamics and Dynatrace are the best solutions in the market, because they have better tools than what Broadcom DX Application Performance Management offers. Their market growth is also very good. I'm scoring Broadcom DX Application Performance Management a seven out of ten. If the application team requires me to deploy something which I have not deployed myself in the past, e.g. one I have no experience deploying, I can look at tool documentations and learn how to build it. I'll then build it and improve myself at the same time, the way I worked on multiple application agents. I'll build and give them to application teams. This is why I'm rating myself a seven out of ten.

We're a customer and an end-user. We don't have any specific business relationship with Broadcom. Overall, I would rate the solution at an eight out of ten. We're mostly happy with its capabilities.

I wouldn't recommend this solution. I don't have enough experience with AppDynamics but from what I have researched on YouTube and other sites, it seems that Appdynamics is definitely better than Broadcom. If they don't have anything in place, I can recommend Broadcom products, such as UAM and APM. It's easy but the configuration requires a lot to be done. I would rate Broadcom DS Application Performance Management a seven out of ten.

We are a customer and an end-users. This solution does not have an on-premises deployment option. It is only available on the cloud. I would advise a company looking for a solution such as this first start do a POC, and really look for the results on the raw data, your own broad data, rather than just going with a company that hasn't been tested. You should place your data into the system and see how the AI/ML is working. If the result is you can get 60, 70, 80% accuracy, you should go with it. I'd rate the solution at a four out of ten. There are many aspects of the solution that still need improvement.

We did not implement the latest release because they made some big changes to the framework. They probably have some of the stuff in their newest release that we would like. However, we didn't do that because they went to Kubernetes and some other technology that we weren't ready to adopt because it isn't in our environment yet. Since Broadcom bought it, I would no longer recommend this product to other users. I think that they increased the price and the support isn't very good anymore. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

You should look at the Broadcom DX version 11, which will be available from early 2021. It is a lot better than version 10.7. There are a lot of big upgrades in version 11. There are not a lot of differences between AppDynamics and Broadcom DX Application Performance Management version 11. The user interface of AppDynamics is better, and the configuration for AppDynamics is a little bit more straightforward. Broadcom offers a wider range and a bigger suite of applications. The APM module is just a part of it, whereas AppDynamics is a specialist at APM. AppDynamics is a better solution at the moment. You need to weigh the extra functionality you might get with AppDynamics and see if it is worth it. Dynatrace is also a better solution. I would rate Broadcom DX Application Performance Management a seven out of ten.

One of our customers has been using this solution for the last ten years since it was called Wily Introscope. They are really satisfied and they are buying more licenses, using the solution for the whole infrastructure. All of my clients are using on-premises installation licenses. Most of our clients are at the enterprise level and they are some of the largest banks in the region. Broadcom DX APM is not only a tool, it's a solution. We have experts who are there to offer assistance in exploring the solution to give the customers the maximum value. In my opinion, it's the best product on the market. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

It’s a great product and provides a lot of in-depth data. Focus and leverage this product as a deep dive one and have another layer above it (another high-level view product etc..)

Definitely a good product, worth going for. Since I first reviewed the product here, about two years ago, I would currently not change my rating of eight out of ten. CA APM hasn't changed much in that time.

Hello guys,  I work as an Engineer at a Comms Service Provider. Can anyone give me any insights about the CA Broadcom APM training?  Is it available in the market? If so, what content does it include? Is it worth it? Any other feedback is much appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

What are the pros/cons of AppDynamics, New Relic & CA Technologies?

All three are good tools for monitoring web application transactions. Of course, CA has a much broader set of capabilities than the other two - can monitor networks, servers, databases, etc. AppDynamics provides a product that you can use in-house. NewRelic is only a SaaS offering. Which of these is best for you - depends on what you need. If you already have CA deployed, you are probably looking at just web transaction monitoring then. AppDynamics and NewRelic are more current in this area than CA Wily.

From my experience with CA Wily, it's more expensive and requires a long implementation, it is also less flexible. We did not consider New Relic because we did not want to have our sensitive data hosted in the cloud. Not acceptable in our business. AppDynamics offered a short implementation time, immediate satisfaction and only required fine-tuning afterwards. Also the pricing was lower then CA Wily.
