The price of New Relic APM could be less expensive. We are using the New Relic APM pro account and it is more costly. When compared to competitors the solution's pricing should be much more realistic. I rate the price of New Relic APM a one out of five.

The price is an issue. It's quite expensive. That said, I can't speak to the exact pricing.

While we do pay for the solution on a monthly basis, I can't speak to the exact cost of the product. There might also be some additional costs on top of the licensing, however, I can't say with certainty.

The price of the solution could be less expensive. You have to pay a lot for each user. There is an additional cost for extra features.

We're working on figuring out the pricing. It looks like it's a little bit about how much data you ingest. Therefore, if you have a big environment, then it might not be good to ingest that month, as that much data will cost you a lot. On the other hand, Dynatrace has a good set of features where you can trace down to the application. However, they are more expensive they don't have some dashboards and cost is an issue for the client.

The price was one of the reasons we chose this solution. It's reasonably priced. It's cheaper than the likes of AppDynamics and Dynatrace, based on how our subscription is.

The pricing is reasonable. APM is a bit on the higher side, however, their service offering is quite good.

The pricing depends on the count of agents and the level.

We renewed our contract directly with New Relic since our systems were hosted on on-premise data centers. The new licensing model is great, as we pay for what we use (in computational units). However, the pricing is expensive compared to other tools.

Corporate handled the licensing and the purchasing of it, then they gave me a license key. However they configured it is how we use it.

New Relic browsers are 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.

They gave us aggressive discounts when they were brought in for the first time, but they have also kept them for the year-on-year renewals, which has been absolutely fine. Thus, we haven't looked to change. The pricing and licensing are good if you have an account manager and a partner manager who are looking to help out.

The pricing model is a little confusing for beginners. They find it a little expensive, and if you are using it already, then that is not good. Purchasing from the AWS Marketplace is very straightforward. When you buy it from AWS Marketplace, you can go with both options: URL SSL license and On Demand. So, when you are building, it is part of AWS, and this is convenient for end users. We deploy everything on AWS. Purchasing the product on AWS Marketplace made it easier for us. The pricing is okay comparatively their competitors. The only concern was whether it should be purchased on demand or bring your own license, and which way passes some savings onto the end customers.

Purchasing through the AWS Marketplace was easy. The product is easy to deploy and manage, which is why our company purchased through the AWS Marketplace. 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.

Because of budget, we are not using the mobile app part of this tool.

This is how New Relic's CEO talks about their meaningful strategic shift...I'm curious if folks have experienced this new product (and new pricing model) and what you think? Is this a big deal? Is it as unique as described? And has the new pricing model made it more affordable and/or clearer to budget for?  "We also heard from our customers that the complexity of our own tooling, together with...

We all know that it's important to try out software as part of the buying process. Do you have any advice for the community about the best way to conduct a trial or POC? How do you conduct a trial effectively? Are there any mistakes to avoid?

You need to experience 'living with' the software - so it needs to be a trial exercise in your environment, driven by your people and stakeholders. The most important element is to exercise an application via load testing, in order to see what a 'real' application is doing, in normal and high load situations. If you don't have sufficient licenses to generate a heavy load, it is often enough to run the app on undersized hardware. I would also recommend you make a modest investment in "APM best Practices - Realizing Application Performance Management" Chapter 6 lays out all of the considerations for a successful pilot exercise - plus you get additional insights in how to justify, deploy and operate an APM solution. The best practices described are vendor-neutral.

Best way to conduct a trial or POC for APM. - For the POC, identify YOUR solved issues to see if the proposed APM solution can identify and pinpoint the problem. Duplicate the issue to see the proposed solution can find the problem. - Make sure the solution can be integrated to your environment. Different organizations have different operational environments. Make sure it meets the expectations for all concerned departments. - Load test. The best load test is the production, real world, load test. MOST enterprise organizations won't allow this, and this is where it matter the most. - Talk to the technical advisors directly. Understand that some APM solutions will offer different methods of delivery or solution. For example, SaaS, On-Premises, On/Off Premises. Make sure you know YOUR environment first so that you can best explain your requirements. - Don't mix Sales and Technical teams together. Make sure the right persons are communicating with each other in order to minimize miscommunication or misunderstanding. I've had sales team overselling their product just to make a sale. I've had sales team lacking technical details. Sales team are there to sell and negotiate pricing, not give technical advice. In the end, everything will be contractual. - Don't be shy to ask for product limitations, this will come after discussing in detail with their technical advisors about your environment and requirements (this can be contractual), good technical advisors will tell you of product limitations and possible workarounds. Good technical advisors will want to have good reputation, thus will always give the best honest answers, and they are the ones you want to be with.
