Azure Application Insights vs Dynatrace: What are the differences?

Developers describe Azure Application Insights as "It is an extensible Application Performance Management (APM) service for web developers". It is use to monitor your live web application. It will automatically detect performance anomalies. It includes powerful analytics tools to help you diagnose issues and to understand what users actually do with your app. On the other hand, Dynatrace is detailed as "Monitor, optimize, and scale every app, in any cloud". It is an AI-powered, full stack, automated performance management solution. It provides user experience analysis that identifies and resolves application performance issues faster than ever before.

Azure Application Insights and Dynatrace belong to "Performance Monitoring" category of the tech stack.

Mews Systems, OpenGov, and SUNFAR Computer Co., Ltd are some of the popular companies that use Azure Application Insights, whereas Dynatrace is used by SAP Hybris, ruxit, and useinsider. Azure Application Insights has a broader approval, being mentioned in 30 company stacks & 88 developers stacks; compared to Dynatrace, which is listed in 99 company stacks and 10 developer stacks.

Hi Folks,

I am trying to evaluate Site24x7 against AppDynamics, Dynatrace, and New Relic. Has anyone used Site24X7? If so, what are your opinions on the tool? I know that the license costs are very low compared to other tools in the market. Other than that, are there any major issues anyone has encountered using the tool itself?
