Overall Satisfaction with AppDynamics

We had to measure critical business transactions in real-time especially for distribution channel applications. The infrastructure complexity was high to address specific outages between layers. Those were the two main motivations to looking for APM solutions in the market and end up choosing Appdynamics.
  • The automatic topology discovery feature helps you to drill down every integration point to other systems.
  • Advanced transaction monitoring for web and mobile applications
  • Root cause analysis should be presented with proposed actions and recovery.
  • Needs huge storage if you keep the transaction history and most of the analytics features rely on that.
  • Business transaction monitoring (active session, error rate, top requested pages etc.)
  • Automatic topology discovery
  • Help us to recover infra related outages more quicker
  • Monitor and improve response time for back-end services
Before having purchase decision, we went through PoC study and evalute the tools in APM market. I am listing key areas that Appdynamics provided better results.
- Out of the box database performans monitoring features.
- Aggressive pricing strategy
- Platform coverage (Web, Mobile and Desktop application)

Do you think AppDynamics delivers good value for the price?

Did implementation of AppDynamics go as expected?


Would you buy AppDynamics again?


I would like to recommend two features that make Appdynamics look strong. For business people and users, it has nice built-in dashboards for mobile and web application monitoring like visitors location details, top requested pages/transactions, error details, etc. For tech ops teams, especially teams in charge of application or infrastructure management; automatic topology discovery is the most important part and helps them to identify issues at first look. It shows you the real-time error rate and application health in a single figure.
