If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Elastic APM, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
We are just a customer and an end-user. With so little experience with the solution so far, I do not have any specific advice to share with others. I'd rate the solution at a six out of ten.
You're not going to get around not having to do the work. I would rate Elastic APM a seven out of 10.
We're a customer. We don't have a professional relationship with Elastic Path. The solution is fantastic. I would rate it nine out of ten. It's practically perfect for our purposes and meets our needs. We still have to build it out. We're relatively new to using it. To make it a perfect ten, for me, the ideal solution would be one that could automate a bit more for monitoring of our whole information system. If we could deploy something, and then discover automatically all our stacks or all of our infrastructure (like the one agent for Dynatrace), it would be perfect. Overall, I would recommend it. It's the most cost-effective. However, If you do not have an on-premise infrastructure, and you want to work on the cloud, or maybe you don't want to be involved in the management of the software as a service solution, you can look for software solutions like Dynatrace, AppDynamics, or New Relic. New users will need to ask: do I have the core team with the core competencies? It may be the most cost-effective solution, however, it's really important to have the core competencies required, or you may run into issues.
