We have built app specific dashboards that report on the success/failure of the most commonly performed actions. We are using APM to get more accurate and useful data from our most heavily used applications.,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.,The product was overly complex to set up and required a lot of interaction from CA and third-party resources. Make sure you have the appropriate amount of vendor services when you implement the tool. Support/documentation is also not as available as other products we have used in the past. The user community is not quite as strong either. Authentication setup was difficult also and took lots of troubleshooting and vendor help to set up.,8,APM has allowed us to customize a dashboard view for each specific application. This allows for unique monitoring of top functions and unique alerts. It is awesome for this use. APM allows us better data and faster alerting compared to previous products. We moved away from another product because it was not reporting on problems accurately. Once set up, APM requires little management and overhead time. The setup can be somewhat time consuming, but once setup we see no issues,Dynatrace Application Monitoring,LANDesk Service Desk, MS SharePoint, Microsoft Office 2016, RSA ArcherBusiness Critical Application MonitoringWe have recommended CA APM to other companies. CA APM has been implemented and supported in my current project for the past 4 years. It is used in banking, POS and HR solutions for the complete project (whole organisation) and not for any specific department. It does address most of our business requirements.,CA APM supports .Net and Java applications which are the strong areas of CA APM. It does very well in banking solutions where we are able to meet our business requirements.,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.,6,Based on my current project experience, I would say ROI is okay and not as per my expectations as it has not been able to meet the complete business requirements.,CA Unified Infrastructure Management, CA Client Automation, CA eHealthCA APM is a StandardMy organization primarily utilizes CA APM to track the performance of all of our in house java web applications and websites. We us it to gather performance metrics from an Dev App prospective to better understand how our sites and applications are being utilized. So we as a company know what our goals and progress moving forward should be.,Introscope does a good job of tracking performance of java jvm applications. CEM does a good job of creating the reports that can be used to track web trends. Team Center can quickly map out the applications and pin point possible issues and gaps within the monitoring.,There is a steep learning curve with the tool which can make it at times daunting to use. APM can at times be fickle with what it can and cannot track as far as performance metrics go. Other than Team Center, the rest of the pieces of the tool aren't as intuitive and require more time to instrument.,6,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.,AppDynamics,System Center Operations Manager, SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor, Site24x7

Our enterprise monitoring group is piloting CA APM for our most important applications. We have built app specific dashboards that report on the success/failure of the most commonly performed actions. We are using APM to get more accurate and useful data from our most heavily used applications.
  • 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.
  • The product was overly complex to set up and required a lot of interaction from CA and third-party resources. Make sure you have the appropriate amount of vendor services when you implement the tool.
  • Support/documentation is also not as available as other products we have used in the past. The user community is not quite as strong either.
  • Authentication setup was difficult also and took lots of troubleshooting and vendor help to set up.
We use APM for application-specific monitoring, initially our high priority apps that are used most heavily. The product is flexible and customizable to set up specific monitoring on each application and alert criteria/thresholds. We have used other tools and considered alternatives, but APM shines in this area.

CA APM Review: "Business Critical Application Monitoring"

We have recommended CA APM to other companies. CA APM has been implemented and supported in my current project for the past 4 years. It is used in banking, POS and HR solutions for the complete project (whole organisation) and not for any specific department.

It does address most of our business requirements.
  • CA APM supports .Net and Java applications which are the strong areas of CA APM. It does very well in banking solutions where we are able to meet our business requirements.
  • 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.
CA APM is well suited for Java and .Net technologies but needs to come out of boundaries and support other technologies like non (Java and .Net), SAP solutions etc...In our environment, the tool is not able to meet the 100% requirement as asked by RFP. Maybe you can say it is able to meet 70% of our requirements.

I think it does a good job monitoring JVM's but there are other tools that seem easier to use and instrument for .net based applications. Now that all three tools are within the same suite. Hopefully there will be a better console that merges them into one cohesive monitoring application in future releases.
