1


Actionable answers, not just data

Dynatrace is an answer-centric platform with AI at the core, which gives you precise root cause, anomaly detection, and business impact without the need to manually review charts and graphs. With Datadog you have lots of data, but you'll need to find the answer.

2


Advanced observability with context

Dynatrace provides observability across metrics, logs and traces with a single platform, but goes beyond that with digital experience, business analytics, and code-level detail, with an understanding of how everything is related in your complex, dynamic environment.
