    Datadog is a no-brainer for any environment that relies on multiple servers. Even for one server, it's so much better to use for monitoring and alert capability than anything else I remember looking at before we started using Datadog. Teams can even use it to track their progress of investigating an alert so multiple people aren't unknowingly looking into the same exact issue unnecessarily.

    I would recommend this tool to business that needs a system that can collaborate and integrate all data across the business hence providing real-time data view, across the business. Also, this tool is able to handle large data without hassle or slowing down.it also has a drag and drop features making our work easier.

    Pros

    Datadog

    • APIs, the ability to interact with the data we pull into data dog is key. We port the information over to Servicenow, so the ability to pull everything into DataDog, then Servicenow, is a key component of our success here at Wayfair.
    • Simple Interface - clean, useful, effective. Allows users to use DataDog for one reason, get work done.
    • Lightweight agent on hosts
    Anthony Zappala | TrustRadius Reviewer

    IBM Planning Analytics with Watson

    • [I appreciate the] ability to work with the same Excel functionality we’re familiar with while having the power of an enterprise planning solution.
    • We can change the number of users of the system or increase data volumes and planning models anytime without reducing the overall performance of the system.
    • We can test our assumptions and see the impact of our decisions by creating personal sandboxes before releasing them to the system.

    Cons

    Datadog

    • User interface could be improved in some areas, looking for host information and the agent install link takes a bit of time.
    • Configuration of the agent is generally done via a config file which is a pro and a con. It would be nice to have some UI to configure various agent options.
    • Billing isn't entirely straightforward, they could use more reports to figure out the source of your monthly costs.
    Kevin Van Heusen | TrustRadius Reviewer

    IBM Planning Analytics with Watson

    • The interface of IBM Planning Analytics should be more updated, to suit the modern designs.
    • The support agents are quite slow, more so in some states and they delay the operations of the software.
    • [In my experience] Some IBM Planning Analytics versions fail to easily integrate with some programs like excel.

    Since IBM Cognos Express is suitable only for medium data warehouse environment, we are not sure if this tool solves the long term need as the business keeps growing rapidly. So its a 50/50 ratio to renew Express license. But having said that, the components of IBM Cognos Express are also available in other Cognos BI suites like Cognos 10.x version. So we will probably upgrade our environment to IBM Cognos 10.x which comes with more new features.

    The user interface is quite intuitive with the exception of the network map. As a deployer of software, it is trivial to setup.

    Again, some room for improvement here. Some competitors are really improving on this front and IBM must not lag behind. This will make a real difference. Overall the tool is quite intuitive and with a bit of practice works well for the mind. A more modern look would not harm.

    The support team usually gets it right. We did have a rather complicate issue setting up monitoring on a domain controller. However, they are usually responsive and helpful over chat. The downside would be I don’t think they have any phone support. If that is important to you this might not be a good fit.

    The overall support of IBM has been very effective throughout the deployment journey. They have always been available 24/7 giving our implementation team the best support they require. They give video links that have the best lessons on effective requirements and full implementation processes. I can say that this is the best customer support team I have come across since we deployed this platform.

    Alternatives Considered

    Datadog

    We are still trying other products, but people still like Datadog. After setting up a dashboard, it's great for monitoring instances on Datadog. Also, the DevOps team had a good time setting up Datadog. It means Datadog was way easier to set up compared to those others.

    I have not been able to work with similar tools in our organization. In budget management, this is the most effective platform I have used. Based on our programs, our organization has achieved a lot of plans and increased production, sales, and profit gains. Interactions across our company and stakeholders are well managed and each team can work on various defined roles.

    Return on Investment

    Datadog

    • One of our critical production databases went down a couple of weeks back. Just because we had the Datadog monitoring enabled for that database, Datadog sent the alerts to PagerDuty and we were instantly notified via pager and email alert. We could act right away and bring up the database within a few mins.
    • Ability to create custom screenboards have allowed us to track the critical and warning alerts in front of our eyes all the time

    • With predictive insights on IBM Planning Analytics with Watson, it [rapidly makes] future decisions.
    • Evaluating [the] performance of our products in the market, client experiences, and marketing channels with this CPM tool [helps] us gain more profit.
    • IBM Planning Analytics with Watson has reduced [our] workload and time by streamlining and optimizing FP&A processes.
