AppDynamics can follow the transactions into all of these areas and provide a single view on the health of the systems.

Cons
Cisco
  • Synergy with Logic Monitor which we use for our infrastructure monitoring.
  • a fair amount of continual configuration to prevent false positives
  • There are a lot of technologies that App Dynamics covers and documentation is a bit of a weak spot in finding clear documentation, configuring dashboards, etc.

  • This tool has a license fee and is not free. Many open-source tools provide free API testing solutions, therefore turning some of this tool's features open-source might be beneficial.
  • The tool's load testing component is not integrated and instead relies on the free Blaze meter.

I have not engaged with similar application management platform in the organization. AppDynamics is the most efficient product that I have come across in monitoring performance of apps. It has transformed hidden analytics into actionable insights that have accelerated positive business growth. It has optimized the entire infrastructure and created conducive working environment that is secure and free from ransomware attacks. The running cost and deployment capacity is affordable to many business enterprise that are ready to transform business operations with advanced technology.

Along with the Parasoft SOA tool, it is unquestionably among the top leaders in API testing and virtualization. Many open-source API testing libraries are free, including Rest Assured, Karate, and even Postman and SOAP UI, which goes against CA.

  • In our group, this instrument produced a high return on investment. We saw a considerable reduction in downtime in our test environments thanks to service virtualization.
  • In addition, service virtualization reduces the expenses of interacting with third-party services, which is common in low-cost contexts.
