    It handles auto-monitoring / configuring a dynamic performance set point that doesn't require manual configuration and the perspective is more end to end which from one perspective is good because you get a view of the whole application end to end but there is less focus than on actual response time to the end-user and detailed breakdown which is in some sense the ultimate purpose of performance monitoring.

    Microsoft Dynamics GP

    A large company where users have one function- for instance, where someone only receives or works in payables. That minimizes the number of windows they need. A smaller company where one user does multiple functions will require a lot more training and user knowledge to navigate, and it makes it harder to secure users. You also have to understand that GP started life as Great Plains, designed for accountants. The other modules were added on after Microsoft bought Great Plains, which means that modules like Manufacturing are red-headed step children with much smaller support ecosystems. So, if you're starting fresh, you may want to look at something built for the mobile world. D365 and Business Central are a lot more money, buggy, and hard to customize and essentially still vaporware. Microsoft is heavily investing there, leading to the previously mentioned question about the future of GP. If I was starting today I would be hard pressed to justify jumping into GP in a world where Salesforce ties in with so many programs. GP has MRP but it is limited so it's hard to justify a manufacturer starting with GP today.

    Pros

    AppDynamics

    • Ease of installing the agents is unbelievable. Supports almost all the servers and technologies.
    • The UI is very clean and very intuitive. Setting up widgets, Alarms, notifications are very powerful features
    • The ability to drill down to a particular layer in technology is useful to find out the performance bottlenecks efficiently.

    Microsoft Dynamics GP

    • User friendly interface
    • Able to be extended into multiple areas of your business
    • One feature we have been using for a few years is EFT for payables - it has significantly reduced the time spent paying vendors and reduced our check printing and mailing costs. It is very easy to setup and use.

    Cons

    AppDynamics

    • In terms of dashboard I believe there is plenty of room for improvement as it's lacking many advance like searching data within the dashboard is not possible.
    • Synthetic monitoring part is still complex and need[s] to be addressed as hosting agents for synthetic monitoring is still [a] challenging task.
    • The on premise controller setup requires huge resources and since it's the important component of AppDynamics ignoring it will cause loss of metrics and slowness while capturing metrics.

    Microsoft Dynamics GP

    • With respect to the allocations, once the expense is entered into the allocation account, you lose the ability to run any detail on just the total of the expense. It would be nice if you could run a trial balance on the allocation accounts the same way you can with regular accounts.
    • I've always thought security set up could be a bit simpler. It actually has gotten better through the years. Specifically, with eight separate entities, it would be nice to have a "master" setup where you could call up one group entity, assign the users rights, and then be finished. Currently, whenever I have a new user, I have to call up each individual entity and select all of the features I want the user to have. That means I have to do eight steps for each user.

    Due the economic challenges that Puerto Rico is having, the company has had to merge some companies in order to be more efficient. It has been easy in GP to process those merges, even thought we had to spend days to accomplish that the process was smooth and accurate. In addition we were able to streamline the purchasing and sales process and the organization is confident to keep renewing GP for the future versions.

    Though it is a basic accounting package, I believe some users do not find the old style menus and navigation options intuitive. There is also a great lack of training resources in the market, so users have to learn the product without guidance a lot, resulting in inefficient workflows and misuse or misunderstanding of many features.

    AppDynamics has its own community site that includes forums and a knowledge base. On the forums, you can converse with other members of the community and ask technical questions as you have them. Though this forum isn’t filled with people there are active members for you to gain some valuable insights.

    Basically the challenge with this implementation was the Business Portal, too many errors and even the aplication is up and running the users are still having issues. We will start planning the migraton to GP 2015 soon.

    Alternatives Considered

    AppDynamics

    AppDynamics is still a good solution as this is one the earliest tool available in the APM space and people are used to this Application usage. However other products are also doing great as Dynatrace is the biggest competitor since it adds on all the AppDynamics features plus it gives additional information readily available. Now Honeycomb is also rising in terms of SLI and SLO objectives.

    Microsoft Dynamics GP

    I come from a strong background of using SAP. SAP doesn't have the flexibility of GP, an example would be SAP doesn't allow core mods, if they catch you, you lose support. Microsoft doesn't really care about mods, but they will be quick to have the vendor you used support your issue if it is caused by those mods. With SAP your company adapts to the software, where with GP you adapt the software to you.

    Return on Investment

    AppDynamics

    • Platform map drilldown capabilities and code-level visibility helped us to find the root cause of problems faster
    • Threshold alerts made proactive problem handling easier
    • Data capture module helped us to link technical data with business data and support customers far more efficiently

    Microsoft Dynamics GP

    • Microsoft Dynamics GP allows my clients to move from a paper or spreadsheet based company to an integrated, electronic, streamlined business. I love being able to help clients gain efficiencies through the use of Microsoft Dynamics GP.
    • Microsoft Dynamics GP allows for better customer service because everything is at our fingertips. If someone calls questioning an invoice, we can easily look it up. If someone calls stating they paid an invoice with a certain check number, we can quickly run a query to find that particular check number to see where it was applied.
    • Having everything on a single platform provides ease of use for upgrades, backups and end user training. There is only one software to learn!
