In scenarios where proactively preventing performance issues is a priority, AppDynamics shines. Its machine learning capabilities and automatic baselining help predict and address potential problems before they impact users. If an organization has relatively simple monitoring needs and doesn't require the advanced features provided by AppDynamics, simpler and more cost-effective monitoring tools may be a better fit.

Scout does a fantastic job with all of the modules and it is easy to navigate. A nice addition was the cyber security module. I can not think of a less appropriate scenario.
Read full review Pros When an issue arises, AppDynamics shines in root cause analysis. For example, it provides a comprehensive breakdown of the factors contributing to a performance problem. This detailed analysis accelerates the troubleshooting process, allowing our teams to address the root cause swiftly and effectively. Read full review I specifically use the risk assessment module and do risk assessments on any new product we introduce into our network or any company that we are thinking about taking on as a client. I also use the vendor management module for any due diligence that comes up with a new company or a company that we may use once and then not use again. Read full review Cons The initial setup process of AppDynamics could be more user-friendly. Some users find the configuration and onboarding to be a bit complex. Improving the onboarding experience could make it more accessible, especially for smaller teams or those with limited resources. It can be difficult for some users to get AppDynamics up and running for the first time. For new users, the platform's usability might be improved by streamlining the onboarding process or providing more user-friendly setup wizards.

If I were to change anything it would be just to add a description of when I would use a report, such as managers, board of directors, or regulators. Read full review Likelihood to Renew

I have used Splunk for a short period. It was difficult to connect with the server and it takes much time to connect with the central server but AppDynamics is quite fast in it. Plus the service handlers for Splunk were a little ignorant their response was usually late in AppDynamics we got a great service team that gave us the solution with application bugs and fixes. Overall AppDynamics is more reliable.

I've already explained why this product beats Excel hands down in time and money. I also love the way it sends you an email when you forget any due diligence or testing that needs to be done.

Read full review I like that everything is in one place. We used to use Excel spreadsheets and it was very hard to keep everything in one place or to find something specific. Now it is very easy finding what you're looking for with this all in one solution. This solution pays for itself with the time saved from not looking at spreadsheets. When the regulators come and they ask for a assessment I can get it for them in very short order. Read full review ScreenShots
