Dynatrace has worked great for us in monitoring our API service layer, and our mobile app user experiences, giving us both back-end and front-end visibility.

Dynatrace is an amazing all-around product that can really change the way you do business. Dynatrace has the ability to see all the metrics in your infrastructure, and provide you with baselines, and report off that to show you how everything works together. I can't see where Dynatrace would be less appropriate because it really allows you to correlate everything that is going on in your business from all the metrics that the OneAgent is able to gather, and you can use that information and tailor it to whichever business unit you see fit.

Dynatrace is well suited for monitoring cloud applications. We haven't used any mobile monitoring so I can't say how Dynatrace performs for that scenario. Synthetic monitoring is good, but could use some improvements, such as more detail in the error descriptions where possible. Also, the screen for editing all monitors at one time is not available. Monitors have to be edited in buckets of 100.

If you are using supported technologies (see their materials, the list grows regularly), Dynatrace is the best APM tool on the market. If you are using unsupported technologies, it's still amazing, but you'll miss out on some of the most advanced, groundbreaking features of the product (such as PurePaths). If anyone ever asked you what was wrong, and you had to answer, "I don't know," then you need Dynatrace.

Dynatrace does a great job at monitoring business processes from end to end. Finding and alerting on problems, and then being able to drill down into pure paths to see user actions, have waterfall analysis to take us right down to the code level, set up conversion goals to track outcomes, etc.

Dynatrace is great at highlighting issues and letting you know of their impact. The AI allows you to make associations that one person could probably not do. I think, so far, most things Dynatrace targets, it does well. I would say Dynatrace should not replace a business analytics solution.

App and infrastructure monitoring is what we use Dynatrace for right now. We are looking to expand as it has many useful tools. Dynatrace has provided us with info and metrics that we couldn't see before. It allows you to troubleshoot an issue before it becomes the customer's issue. Overall Dynatrace is a great product, and I look forward to working with them more.

Dynatrace is well suited to complex infrastructures--hybrid cloud and on-premises. We use Dynatrace across seven different data centers in three global regions, and it was extremely simple to roll all of that out. It did take some time to get used to the different ways in which Dynatrace presents information as opposed to prior tools like New Relic and AppDynamics, but once you get used to it, Dynatrace makes a lot of sense.

Dynatrace seems suited for all types of environments, especially those with Linux and Windows deployments. Any organization that wants to reduce the amount of time spent determining root-cause analysis will find this product extremely valuable. It's fully customizable, which allows for "noise" to be filtered out and meaningful problems to be raised.

Dynatrace is well suited for businesses that have multiple facets of tech. It allows those disparate tools to align in a single pane of glass. Now, the calls aren't pointing fingers at whose tool has the right info--everyone can work from the same canvas with accurate real-time info. I'd like to see us expand this to our additional BU areas.

The Dynatrace platform is extensive and really shines when implemented across the stack for full end-to-end visibility from the client browser to the underlying cloud infrastructure. It is also a powerful tool to use in development/performance testing to identify issues and hotspots that are candidates for optimization, preventing these from being discovered in production. Combining client and end-to-end coverage along with their dashboard functionality you can get a combination tech/business view of KPIs.

With Dynatrace, it's easy to back-track any transaction. We are also using AppDynamics in production but developers are struggling to identify any root cause if there are any performance issues. However, in Dynatrace it's easy to back-track and identify any issue quickly. Dynatrace UI is user friendly compared to AppDynamics. I think Dashboard is nice, but there is no way I can compare between two time-frames. This would help me to compare test results between two releases easily.

Dynatrace into the future

Dynatrace is great when we have an issue with one of our apps and we need to pinpoint the problem. For example, we had an issue with kiosks at airports - we managed to have Dynatrace alert the airports when the kiosks were running low on paper and to replace them. Another place Dynatrace excels is when we have an outage that is affecting multiple applications at once. Usually that means some dependency is down and Dynatrace can quickly identify the root cause.

Dynatrace is less appropriate on some legacy systems that are not supported. Unfortunately no support for really old applications.

Dynatrace is well suited for the companies where application performance is given utmost priority and the Dynatrace team has a liberty to install the agents on all systems used by the business critical applications. With the help of detailed performance and load tests in the lower environment a lot of issues can be resolved beforehand.

Dynatrace helps us see what applications are doing across cloud and on premise deployments. It is adapted to microservices monitoring with auto discovery and CAAS integretions. Faster incident resolution through root cause analysis.

Dynatrace is well suited for monitoring a diverse ecosystem of applications, running in multiple environments and with differing languages. It is very quick and easy to implement Dynatrace and it is very fast to deliver business value. In the world of cloud deployments, monitoring server-less applications, i.e. AWS Lambda is still in early stages, which is a shame since we often use it.

We found that for cloud environments with micro services and container based deployments, Dynatrace shines as it provides details for both infrastructure and applications. Most tools just do one. Dynatrace is not very helpful on databases. We have not used it on mainframes, as there are existing tools that work well.

The solutions help us a lot in various scenarios. It's easy to implement and use. It took half a day to start to verify some bottlenecks in our environment and direct the team toward actions that will really impact positively our business. We could identify the user that should be impacted by the performance of our platform, and with the UX, we could verify the real reason for the experience and what we are looking for.
