CA Wily is well suited for monitoring the load balanced application nodes and determine their main performance bottlenecks like if problem exists in heap or in some connection issues. But I think when it comes to providing the entire report of the application, it is less appropriate as there is no way to create the entire report of the test for all the counters monitored. Also there is no way to detect some issues based on the system configuration.

It is perfectly suited for keeping all your developers up-to-date with the latest best practices. In the case of a really huge system, the possibility to identify the most critical line of script that needs to be fixed for the most severe production issues is a huge benefit. It will not be that useful for smaller projects with just a few people in the project team.

Pros
Broadcom
  • Alerting which can be customized by the end user.
  • Visualization of the metrics and data presented to provide a unique and attractive interface.
  • Flexibility to manage actions and commands that we deem important for each application. The ability to define these and customize the metrics reported for each individual application is huge for us.

Cons
Broadcom
  • We are facing challenges to meet RFP requirements in few areas where I would recommend CA to improve.
  • We are facing challenges for non (java and dotnet application) which CA APM does not support. SAP is another solution where CA APM is not able to address our business requirement.

We cannot have any complaints regarding support provided for our deployments by germain CRT. We had some worries that with such big ecosystems of plugins issues are imminent, but it really only takes a few minutes for you to add a new plugin and germain CRT support team is happy to do it for you.

We only have 1 application using DX APM, while most of other applications are instrumented using Dynatrace. Dynatrace provides a better monitoring and instrumentation for applications. The required effort to setup monitoring capability using DX APM is way more work compared to Dynatrace, also the amount of KPIs offered from Dynatrace is more than DX APM.

germain CRT has a richer set of features when compared with its competition. The pricing policy of germain CRT works better for our type of products. The free trial allowed us to thoroughly evaluate if required features can be found and integrated to our advantage. Availability of both on-premise and cloud deployments is very important for us and not every vendor has it.

Return on Investment
Broadcom
  • Introscope is deeply utilized within the organization. However, CEM and Team Center not as much. Those that use one piece don't generally use the others. Partially because of the curve in learning how to use the consoles effectively.
  • reporting is pretty well configured and easy to setup if you know how to use the tools. So this can be easy to use and takes less time to configure for the different groups within the organization.
