They can improve the post-processing of the data. AppDynamics has more powerful tools for post-processing or analytics. It has some limitations in more complex environments, but because we are free to use different solutions, we try to find what is best for the customers or the problem we are trying to solve.

I would say that the implementation of ManageEngine Applications Manager is too detailed. You need some training to effectually use it. For a new person who is using it, he will find the features are all a bit overwhelming. I would suggest that improvement for this product would be to make it easier to use. They could probably rearrange the UI so that it would be easy for people who are new to the Application Manager to configure things.

The information provided by ManageEngine is not deep-dive like IBM and CA provide. For example, ManageEngine does show the data, but it's common data like response time and data like that. From the engine side, and from my perspective as a systems expert or the perspective of my site engineer, the information provided by ManageEngine is not enough to do the analysis of my application and to find the root cause of the application problem. They need to improve the engine that collects the information. For the dashboard I think ManageEngine is enough and it's easy for the user to do the daily monitoring. But for systems experts and developers, the information is not enough, they would need the dashboard to be improved. Additionally, their integration could be improved. ManageEngine is sold as a modular product. They have their own application monitoring product which is separate from their network monitoring. It would be good for the customer if they consolidated it all together into one engine, especially on the IT side. If they consolidated it into one engine and one dashboard it would be better for the customer. Therefore, I think the integration between their tools and integration with other tools would improve the engine overall.

We would like the ability to log and move monitors between probes. The dashboards in the interface need a lot of work. The ability to go ad-hoc would be a helpful inclusion in the next release. You put something into maintenance mode on a schedule, which is something that I can't do from my screen.
