I've been managing desktops for 20+ years and Nexthink was the missing tool out of my toolbox. Just to give some perspective, if you were building and maintaining a house, Nexthink would be comparable to switching up from a hammer and nails and to full blown using a nailgun. Nexthink is a solution accelerator and a well thought out toolset to give you the customer experience at a glance. It allows for so much more visibility just with the default set of data points the Collector (agent) gathers, which is A LOT, and grants you the ability to gather even more data with remote actions. All of this evidence cuts how the "it could possibly be this" and "maybe it's that" discussions when you're troubleshooting an issue. It may not provide the exact answer all the time, but it gives you a "compass point" on where you need to start looking to resolve the issue. Also the service monitoring, activity monitoring, and critical event thresholds really empower the teams to know when a problem is happening and they can get ahead of it before the first call even reaches the Help Desk. Nexthink is a cornerstone tool in our environment for end user experience and I'm excited to see where the go next.

One area in which Splunk Application Performance Monitoring was able to help our organization was when we transitioned one of our applications to the cloud. It allowed our team to understand how different factors impacted our application once it was moved to the cloud. This visibility gave us some incite on changes that were required in order to make our application perform better.

(This isn't the case with the cloud offering.) Some useful features are only available to cloud customers. Library pack configuration could be made easier, often these packs require some customization and it's not always clear how to get them up and running after importing.

When we have to restart that Splunk process on those local hosts More user friendly Web interface will be nice to have a PDF format option will be good Read full review Usability
Splunk is a great tool for log mining. It is less time-consuming and easy to use. It provides high security, it has customisable dashboards. Furthermore, it acts as a search head, and it gives real-time status. It has the ability to collect data from any source and multiple sources, and it can correlate them.

Nexthink had better integration and a better user interface. 1E did not have the engagement capability which is so critical to many of the actions we complete using Nexthink. Nexthink had better trending data capabilities. 1E did not capture and hold data the way Nexthink does so all data assumes you are able to pull information from all systems at any time. with remote systems it is unlikely you will capture all systems at the same time so it makes any actions less effective. this review was performed 4 years ago so 1E may have addressed some of these limitations but Nexthink has also grown and continues to add and improve on their industry-leading capabilities.

It is good that the correlation analysis and the cause of the failure can be analyzed more extensively through the collection of many data. It is good because it provides a user interface (usability) well and can be used conveniently.
It is good because it can utilize anomaly detection through various AI-based ML models.
