I have used the product for 3 years now and realize that at first it took me a month or two to identify all of the information that DPA has to offer. Since then I use the tool on a daily basis for troubleshooting, schema change performance validation, index tuning and recommendations, and reviewing the overall health and wait times of the SQL instances.
