Overall Satisfaction with Dynatrace

Dynatrace was implemented at my company initially to meet a need for the Operations teams to have a more modern and inclusive monitoring tool for our environments. It has since broadened its use case and has been adopted by other departments in the company as well. Dynatrace solves the problem of operations team members having to watch dashboards throughout the day and then spend additional time tracking down the root of the issue, by sending notifications when problems do arise and determining the root cause.
  • Dynatrace shows dependencies between services well. It allows users to visualize the steps that a call takes as it moves through your system.
  • Dynatrace determines root causes well, which has been a great benefit for our team. We can quickly see what service has slowed down or crashed, and what is causing other systems to be impacted.
  • Dynatrace doesn’t work as well out-of-the-box with legacy technologies, such as WebMethods, and requires a more manual implementation for them.
  • Dynatrace has resulted in significantly shorter issue resolution times.
  • Dynatrace has allowed for the Operations team to spend less time watching dashboards and more time developing.
Dynatrace is well suited for large, complex environments where it can be difficult to determine where dependencies are.
