"From the performance management side, I like everything from business transaction work to tracking. On the database side, we can get a lot of insights from the database. On the server monitoring side, it helped us a lot to find out some of the issues on the VM side because VMs were creating a little trouble for us."
"I have found the main feature of the solution to be its ability to analyze an application's code to see where there are issues. Additionally, it is easy to use and configure."
"The most valuable feature in AppDynamics is the identifying of the slow responses. Additionally, it is easy to use."
"It's good for a larger scale deployment such as what my company is working on."
"In 2014 and 2015, AppDynamics was one of the best products on the market."
"This solution is easy to use and very powerful, it is a complete tool for us."
"The solution helps us save a lot of time on certain tasks."
"The features that I like best are the dashboard and Business Journey."
"It is very easy to configure because we are using an agent-less version. You can very quickly implement a collector for monitoring device servers."
"There could be some improvement in the constructions of the diagrams, it is too difficult currently."
"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 cost element is an issue. I can't expect the company to change its way of work. However, given the fact that we earn and do all our business in South African Rand, I would prefer to buy in Rand as opposed to the American dollar or British pound."
"There are too many installers available for this solution."
"Its resiliency can be improved. We're told that the best we can do with an on-prem solution is to have a hot standby that requires a manual switchover. So, it is a do-it-yourself Ikea model of maintaining data consistency between two servers, without having low balance or failover considerations for an on-prem solution."
"If it can be able to intelligently provide all the things we need to look at, from a data point of view, that would be very useful."
"Additional support for NextGen mobile platforms also needs to be high in the roadmap prioritizations"
"As per my experience, the drill-down feature can be improved at the class level."
"It doesn't have the complete application-level topology. It could have service topology and business service monitoring. I would like to see how business service monitoring will function with agent-based installation, and how flexible and business-oriented it is for service modeling and service infrastructure. I have a lot of experience in using business service monitoring, service topology, and service hierarchy functionalities in similar products from BMC and Micro Focus (OpenView), and I want to see how these functionalities will look like in ScienceLogic."
