Amazon SNS

Our customers that use AWS cloud services, it was easy for us to integrate Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS). For the customers who use another cloud platform, it was difficult for us to integrate and manage with it.

Localytics

For the price and the features available, Localytics is one of the best options. It is more robust in areas that we don't need it to be and overall there could be simpler flows for sending push notifications or performing actions that you need to do every week. Also, the data it sends back on how push notifications perform is basically useless. There needs to be more explanation on the impact notifications have on users. The data would always say that notifications drove less engagement but we would see engagement go up every time we sent a notification.

Localytics

Cons

Amazon SNS

  • It does not have sufficient debug options. The only way is to subscribe for email to receive errors.
  • It is difficult to format email. To support dynamic formatting, developer needs to write extra code which can be simplified.

Localytics

  • The biggest thing I would like to see with Localytics is the capability for more correlations. The limited amount of correlations available does restrict the type of analyses that could be done with the data.
  • An easier interface to move data into Microsoft Excel would be very useful, rather than creating annoying workarounds.
  • More/better automatically scheduled reporting, as well as an Excel plug-in to access the data rather than being restricted to the Localytics interface.

There is a lot of competition. I would renew if there isn't anything more exceptional that would justify the re-coding and implementation load costs

It would take several weeks to hear back from the billing team. It took 3 months to resolve an invoice last year. Their technical support is very responsive. I would typically get a response in under 24 hrs.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon SNS

Many products, including PagerDuty, can be used to notify stakeholders when alarms are triggered. SNS is only suitable for non-emergency email alerts, and integration with CloudWatch is its only advantage. If you want to be notified of an issue by email, SNS can be configured in seconds. It is not suitable for any of PagerDuty's other use-cases.As a pub/sub system, SNS is somewhat similar to Apache Kafka. Queues may be suitable for some use-cases; Amazon SQS may be appropriate in these cases.

We have not used other products but are going to start exploring making a switch to a new platform.

Return on Investment

Amazon SNS

  • It has helped our team to be alerted quickly to undesirable changes in our AWS environment so that immediate action can be taken. Hence it has saved us a lot of time and money due to quick action.

Localytics

  • Was our first provider of user-level event data
  • Allows for many users to easily answer their own questions before making requests of the data team
  • Raw data dumps gave the data team the ability to provide more in-depth analyses.
