I have not evaluated any other monitoring products. Our company has evaluated other products that have not stacked up against Dynatrace. Dynatrace has deeper monitoring than others and provides excellent alerting capabilities. Dynatrace was selected for those features as well as the scalability of the product. Although the cost is high, the ROI makes it worth it.

Dynatrace provides the best insights into our environment from end to end. It provides user sessions throughout the application so, we can see exactly what users are doing and potentially not only fix problems but provide improvements before any issues arise. There is no simpler product to deploy and get so much information from than Dynatrace.

The others don't have the tools that Dynatrace has, nor the AI features. They couldn't compare to Dynatrace when it came to troubleshooting options or log analytics. They also didn't have the same level of vendor support as Dynatrace has given us. Dynatrace is the future, and I look forward to working with them more.

Great product, but pricey

Dynatrace was the easiest to use. AppDynamics was a close second. The Dynatrace AI agent was extremely impressive. Others are working on it but don't seem to be there yet. The Dynatrace roadmap and vision (coupled with execution to this point) matched where we were going the best with cloud and kubernetes playing the most key roles. New Relic required far too much code instrumentation and changes to get the detail we got out-of-the-box with both AppDynamics and Dynatrace. New Relic and AppDynamics were both more competitively priced though--Dynatrace is pricey.

These technologies seem to be primarily reactive. Kaseya alerting is particularly difficult to set up and can create very chatty alerts with too much information. These products do not recognize relationships between applications. The ability to integrate log monitoring into Dynatrace's event correlation makes this product superior to the problem analysis offered by these other products.

Before, when using APM in New Relic and SolarWinds for infrastructure, it was always difficult to pinpoint where issues came from. Now, the conversation starts out with people from those 2 groups talking on the same page with the same data, thanks to Dynatrace.

Dynatrace into the future

Dynatrace ended up being our choice over AppDynamics and Adobe Analytics because of the full stack monitoring capabilities. Where these other products allowed us to see limited slices of our environment, Dynatrace promises to give full visibility into everything. We started out small with AppMon a few years ago, but over time we saw the constant improvement of the product - much faster than these competitors. While it wasn't perfect, and many times it was a struggle to get it to work the way we wanted. So when Dynatrace was coming out with a new product, we jumped at the opportunity to change over to it.

Unsure as I was not a part of the initial POC for Dynatrace. Dynatrace was already deployed before I was employed. I wish that I could provide more detail into the differences, but I have not had the chance to review what was offer with Cisco's product.

There are many pros and cons. For some use cases, Dynatrace far exceeds the capabilities of the competition--for instance in automatically detecting issues and performing root-cause analysis, Dynatrace is clearly ahead of the others. For cloud monitoring, Datadog seems to have the upper hand, especially when it comes to server-less apps.

Dynatrace is significantly better for multiple reasons: Ease of install, SaaS and Managed options availability, and level of application code level details. AppDynamics did not have a single agent and it is more cumbersome to use. New Relic only supports SaaS deployments. We were Appmon users, so the choice was easy.

I think Dynatrace will involve the infrastructure monitoring with the APM. The Application Performance Monitoring, with a native way to verify the database, servers and middleware will bring more effective root cause analyses to our team. Today, we need to bring more tools to complete the troubleshooting.

Most monitoring tools are about infrastructure monitoring and keep stuck at the levels levels of monitoring. They collect logs and you have to create your own view of the correlation. They really miss out on business impact and organic insight in your current configuration. Just collecting everything is not enough anymore.
