Dynatrace Reviews – there are no alternatives

When evaluating enterprise software buyers will typically take two paths:

  • A free trial or demo: We’ve always encouraged our buyers to Start your free trial, and not just on a basic app but something that will truly test our unique features.
  • Reviews: We might not be silicon valley’s poster child, but we lead the pack on every major review site by a long way.

Dynatrace Reviews: Highly rated on all major review sites

It’s a lot to read through every single review so for convenience I have summarised:

  • Dynatrace is the leader on most major review sites
  • Most of the reviews focus on ‘easy‘, ‘data quality‘, ‘AI‘.
  • Dynatrace is recognised for rapid release cycles – 26 per year, where as our competition is lucky to have 4 major releases.
  • Dynatrace Services and Support teams are top notch.

I’ll update this post once IT Central station has updated their leaderboard, but no question we will be leading.

Customer quotes that define the value of Dynatrace

As I read through all the quotes I hear a common thread:

  • It’s easy to install and fully automatic
  • The dashboarding is out of the box
  • The data is powerful and yet easy to understand
  • The software is simply invaluable
  • Our services and support team have a fantastic reputation


  • The negatives are pricing and the learning curve.
  • Our new platform was designed to make it easy for you to adopt, SAP had over 1400 users adopt our software in 3 months. Not bad at all.
  • On pricing I will take the feedback on board in order to help new prospects understand our pricing model. But of course you get what you pay for. We are #1 for a reason, and we try and be fair in our pricing model to ensure it’s economical for you and for us to continue to make it!
