Overall Satisfaction with Dynatrace

Dynatrace is currently being used on by a small group of developers and Application Technical support team. It helps give visibility into vendor products that we install locally and helps us work with the vendors to better their software that we have purchased.
  • Details, Dynatrace gives you all the details of an application from start to finish. Helps identify server connections, response times over network connections, and so much more. Easy to use and find errors so we can spend more time fixing problems than trying to figure out where the problem is.
  • Ease of use. The out of the box dashboards are easy to use and very intuitive.
  • Support -- the user community and Dynatrace University help in figuring out where information is, or what information from Dynatrace is telling me, easier.
  • Pricing -- some of the pricing is a bit much for smaller companies. Pricing models could be adjusted accordingly.
  • Synthetic monitoring is nice, but with the code, smaller companies can’t utilize this function.
  • It has had a positive impact. Working with packaged systems, you don’t get a view into the code. With Dynatrace I was able to work with my infrastructure teams and external software vendors to figure out issues with the software or environments and get them resolved quickly.
Dynatrace was a much more complete solution....period.
Dynatrace can help anyone find out where their application issues are. From database calls, network traffic, and user sessions, it gives you the details you need to fix the problems. At this time I have not figured out where it would not be appropriate. Due to cost, it is probably appropriate to not put it on everything, as it is not as cost friendly.
