We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution works well overall. It's easy to implement and simple to use.""Azure Monitor is very stable.""Provides an overview and high-level information.""Azure Monitor is really just a source for Dynatrace. It's just collecting data and monitoring the environment and the infrastructure. It is fairly good at that.""Good load and metrics gathering and very good analysis.""We like this searchability and availability of the data.""The most valuable feature is that it's stable. It hasn't crossed any thresholds.""The most valuable feature is that it ensures our servers are up."

"There are alerting mechanisms in place to let us know, for example, if a device is not responding to a ping test and is probably not going to work.""The most valuable features are monitoring and reporting."

Cons
"The process of implementation needs to be easier.""I'd like the solution to do more around vulnerability assessment. It's lacking in the product right now.""In my opinion, they should improve the overall user experience, especially when it comes to indexing and searching collective logs.""There are a lot of things that take more time to do, such as charting, alerting, and correlation of data, and things like that. Azure Monitor doesn't tell you why something happened. It just tells you that it happened. It should also have some type of AI. Environments and applications are becoming more and more complex every day with hundreds or thousands of microservices. Therefore, having to do a lot of the stuff manually takes a lot of time, and on top of that, troubleshooting issues takes a lot of time. The traditional method of troubleshooting doesn't really work for or apply to this environment we're in. So, having an AI-based system and the ability to automate deployments of your monitoring and configurations makes it much easier.""Lacks information including details related to where problems lie.""The price could be lower but it is not a must.""Automation related to gathering metrics from more applications could be improved.""When something goes down, we want the option to have automation in place to get it back up again as quickly as possible."

"Technical support could use some improvement.""I would like to see better integration with other products."
