Raymond James chooses Dynatrace over AppDynamics

“Before buying Dynatrace we had very little visibility into our applications. The factor that makes it difficult is the complexity of the heterogeneous environment. You also have external influences. You need a system to be able to actually see the whole ecosystem and see where the performance problems are. Customer experience is key. The minute the user satisfaction goes down it’s a call to action. We jump on problems before the first call comes in.”

Jeff Palmiero, APM Manager at Raymond James
