"It helped to find quick solutions for specific business transactions."
"In 2014 and 2015, AppDynamics was one of the best products on the market."
"AppDynamics is easy to implement if you follow the documentation, and the documentation that they provide is good."
"The solution helps us save a lot of time on certain tasks."
"The features that I like best are the dashboard and Business Journey."
"The SAP monitoring element is very helpful."
"Provides monitoring more around business processes versus just servers, applications, etc. E.g., with complex systems, where a business process passes across multiple applications, the business needs us to monitor the heath of the process, not just a segment of the application."
"AppDynamics has been stable."
"Working with the solution is very easy. It's user-friendly."
"The service maps that it creates, the health maps that it creates, the insights that it provides, etc., are all quite useful."
"The simplicity of the dashboard is very good."
"The most valuable feature is application monitoring."
"The VPN is one of the solution's most valuable features for us."
"The breakdown of the response time of different components and getting in-depth details of the slow component are the most valuable features. It is easy to use, and it gets the job done."
"End-user Synthetics and monitoring are very good."
"It does everything we wanted it to do."
"More native support for other hardware is needed because having to install various extensions and perform extra setup for different devices is really challenging, and not as easy or straightforward as it is in other products."
"While it is scalable, it could be better."
"The dashboard can be better. Also, the automated reports could be improved."
"The cloud licensing needs to be improved. It's quite pricey."
"There are too many installers available for this solution."
"We constantly need to improve our alert mechanism because we get a lot of false-positive alerts. These are not real errors. In addition, for end-user monitoring, sometimes, we are not able to catch all user activities. Because of not being able to follow the user activity from the start to the end, we are missing out on the performance issues."
"The worst part is that the AppDynamics SaaS Environment has a lot of downtimes, and AppDynamics, despite our efforts, does not give us any feedback on these downtimes/incidents."
"The agent deployment could be simplified by, for example, adding a GUI."
"The solution could improve by having more network monitoring features, such as for all the infrastructure."
"They should bring the pricing down to be more competitive."
"The deployment process could be improved."
"The older view is much better than the new view that they have. We'd like to go back to that previous version. The user interface just isn't as nice as it used to be."
"There has been some problem with the agent, and it is just not working well. It is not able to record information with the application server. They have been able to fix the issue, but it took quite a long time. This is the main issue in the APM products and also in New Relic. The mobile application monitoring has been pretty difficult to set up and also quite expensive. It should be a little bit easier and cheaper. Because it is pretty difficult and expensive, many customers don't take it."
"It is very difficult to award the service level cycles at an endpoint level."
"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."
