We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Provides an overview and high-level information."
"Good load and metrics gathering and very good analysis."
"The most valuable feature is that it's stable. It hasn't crossed any thresholds."
"The most valuable feature is that it ensures our servers are up."
"Azure Monitor is very stable."
"We like this searchability and availability of the data."
"Azure Monitor is really just a source for Dynatrace. It's just collecting data and monitoring the environment and the infrastructure. It is fairly good at that."
"The solution works well overall. It's easy to implement and simple to use."
"I like the deep-dive detail and end-user metrics data. The synthetic monitor is the best one. The best point of the new one is that there's no need for configuration. You can inject the Java script and start to change major developments in the application. This is a good approach, and we received all the data using this."
"The event management part of TrueSight Operations Management, in my experience, is probably the best in the market. You have endless flexibility. You can build your own rules, you have the MRL language, and you can implement any kind of logic on the alerts. It may be correlation, abstraction, or executing something as a result of the alerts. You have almost the whole range of options available for event management using the available customization."
"The solution has a very good business event manager tool."
"The most valuable features are the rich reports, high performance, and the look and feel of the WebEx webpage are very good."
"Lacks information including details related to where problems lie."
"When something goes down, we want the option to have automation in place to get it back up again as quickly as possible."
"There are a lot of things that take more time to do, such as charting, alerting, and correlation of data, and things like that. Azure Monitor doesn't tell you why something happened. It just tells you that it happened. It should also have some type of AI. Environments and applications are becoming more and more complex every day with hundreds or thousands of microservices. Therefore, having to do a lot of the stuff manually takes a lot of time, and on top of that, troubleshooting issues takes a lot of time. The traditional method of troubleshooting doesn't really work for or apply to this environment we're in. So, having an AI-based system and the ability to automate deployments of your monitoring and configurations makes it much easier."
"Automation related to gathering metrics from more applications could be improved."
"The troubleshooting logs need improvement. There should be some improvement there. I have a hard time finding the right logs at the right times whenever there is an issue occurring."
"The process of implementation needs to be easier."
"In my opinion, they should improve the overall user experience, especially when it comes to indexing and searching collective logs."
"The price could be lower but it is not a must."
"The solution is overly complex."
"I would like them to improve the deep-dive details, tracing, and data agents in this product. We have EUEM, an end-user experience monitoring appliance. This one's quicker than the current one, and reporting side and filtration side are very bad. There are many details we look at and explain what we receive information in the current one, but we cannot have historical data like we do with EUEM. We cannot have a powerful point to look for specific traffic from a specific application and a specific browser. We don't have it in the new one. The current BMC also needs to add the thing that control versions."
"It's too complex, too many servers are required, there are too many different components in the solution, and a lot of agents are required."
"The price of BMC TrueSight Operations Management is very high. If there was more flexibility with the sizing of the licensing it would be helpful, especially during the pandemic. We have wanted to expend but the licensing cost is too high."
"Consider scalability very carefully: how much you want to monitor and what components are very important. Then, depending on these two things, filter out unwanted metrics or attributes. If you do a good job at filtering the data, then your licensing costs will be manageable."
