I think this is a great platform as long as there is a dedicated team which is going to spend reviewing the data and also taking out insights from it, making it beneficial. It was well suited for me when working with a client that had a very large amount of traffic, with a large range of complex products on offer. This tool allowed us to be able to do more with the data and segmenting it more which ultimately drove our relationship forward, but also the results that we saw

Wanting to have a developer friendly application that is highly extensible to help monitor and ensure high application availability, I believe New Relic is the best in class. As teams grow and if you want all engineers to have access to New Relic the pricing can get very expensive and would require working with your account rep to try and get a contract in place that fits business needs.
Read full review Pros It is an excellent cloud analytics platform that is easy to install and configure and easy to deploy and use, allowing us to measure web traffic and other tools. It is an entirely online tool; it does not take up hard disk space like other desktop tools. Since this tool is draggable, Google is constantly adding more features. Even beginners who do not have a custom dashboard can get information. If there is a problem somewhere on the site that needs to be investigated, Google Analytics 360 will notify you.

Kubernetes cluster monitoring with new relic for EKS gives us and minute details of our cluster utilisation like node usage, pods memory request and limits Network traceability for each and every request with response time analysis is great we can trace which component is responsible for generating response delay log managements of the logs the infrastructure is generating we can view logs through there only Read full review Cons Google Analytics can be difficult to understand. Not everyone is a whiz at analytics and you really need someone to help set it up for you and explain it to you. Unless you hire someone to help you set it up, Google Analytics 360 can be overwhelming. It almost provides TOO much information, some of which isn't applicable to most users. It would be nice if Google Analytics 360 would provide a "lite" version - or boil it down to the things most people want and need to know. Read full review I would like to see sort of simulator inside the user interface, that way we can send requests directly from it to test some configuration instead of setting up a test environment in our end. It would be nice if the data ingestion can be filtered by APM's. That way we can know which application is ingested most data. It would be nice if we could ingest logs (apache, system logs, and other logs) and correlate them with the APM. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Google Analytics 360 is an upgraded version of the most widely used web/app analytics tracking tools in the market. The price is stable and predictable making it a long-term product of choice. It's easy to use and pairs so well with other Google Marketing Platform products.

The only issue that we have had with New Relic is that the price might be a little expensive for smaller companies. The amount of data you store in New Relic impacts the cost, and can get away from you if you don't work closely with the vendor. Overall though the application is top notch.
Read full review Usability
The UI is very easy to navigate and use. The features are well designed and intuitive. As long as the user has a good understanding of basic digital analytics definitions and capabilities, this tool should be quite easy to use. I consider Google Analytics Premium to be the easiest of all of the enterprise solutions out there to use.

As an engineer, New Relic has been very quick and easy for me to pick up/install/use. It has been less easy for some of the less technical-minded folks in our organization and their UI still is inconsistent multiple years after refactoring their platform to be New Relic One.

If you purchase Premium through a reseller like LunaMetrics, you are going to be taken care of. The additional amount of support and services that a reseller provides to make sure you have the best experience with the product is the reason why the reseller program exists to begin with. Support doesn't have to be just reactive, it can be proactive as well.

There are times I feel that the initial support is lacking. And in some cases the automated responses of not hearing anything are annoying if the reason why there has been no movement is because we are still waiting to hear back from NR support. So, i think they should loose the automation as it can seem disingenuous

There is a ton of information online about Google Analytics, but Google Analytics Premium users will have dedicated support and training from Google or an Authorized Reseller.

If you already have the basic version of GA installed, "getting" GA Premium happens immediately through a virtual flipping of the switch - no need to re-implement. You'll want to expand your use of custom dimensions and metrics (you get 10x the amount with Premium). Ideally, you'll be using a tag management solution to talk with GA Premium, in concert with implementing a dataLayer (to note, Google's Tag Manager platform is covered under the same GA Premium SLA, and it's free). There are some welcomed "configurations" with GA Premium, such as integrating with DoubleClick products, activating data driven attribution models, and building roll-up executive reports - but all of these are easy point and click solutions. In comparison with any other enterprise analytics solution, implementing GA and GA Premium is traditionally easier and more flexible. And if you have any trouble or need an extra set of hands for implementation, GA Certified Partners like LunaMetrics can help

It's better to start by implementing New Relic in one project and test everything. Try to follow best recommended practices and read all the official documentation. Everything seems well tested. Then, start by installing agents to the rest of your projects and keep a close look to all logs and metrics New Relic gives you.

Unless you have very complex and edge case analytics needs, Google Analytics [360 (formerly Google Analytics Premium)] is likely going to be the best choice. From both a cost and usability stand point, Google wins. Adobe has the edge case when you need to create really custom reports, dimensions, metrics, etc. In my experience, this is rarely the case and you end up biting off more than you can chew. Stick with Google unless you are or plan on hiring an
Read full review New Relic's APM is better than Datadog. Has better traces, and dashboards. The Apdex based alerts are accurate and work predictably even at a large scale. New Relic can become expensive as the volume of data ingested grows. Datadog has better dashboards and cross-service maps.
We selected New Relic because of better APM capabilities, and our teams ease of usage

Read full review Return on Investment Unlike AdWords, it's difficult to put a number on the ROI for GA 360. I was not in charge of pricing at my previous company, but offering analytic support to clients as part of a website optimization (and maybe even SEO) package certainly has value. I imagine that having a direct line to Google consultants may be a value proposition to clients, but again, I was never a salesperson. If you are a larger company for whom GA 360 is appropriate, then having the best tools money can buy (and the features therein) is always a nice thing to have in your back pocket.

New Relic monitoring helped in proactive monitoring and helped to achieve better uptime and customer experience. New Relic APM assisted the Technology team to debug the functional and performance issues faster and hence made their work more effective. Read full review ScreenShots
