Sematext

Simple pricing model

Unlike AppDynamics, who do not publish pricing, Sematext strives to be as transparent as possible. As well as publishing our pricing on our website, we also use a licensing model that is clear to understand. For APM functionality, customers are charged per agent used for monitoring. Simple!

Software license and subscription costs

Whereas traditional APM vendors such as AppDynamics have a pricing model set up to favour Enterprise customers, Sematext has plans for organisations of all sizes, from small startups to Fortune 100 companies. Sematext Cloud pricing is metered and based on the running time of the app / server being monitored. This means that users are only charged for actual usage and can scale up, down or even stop using the service at any time. Our clients have found a dramatic TCO improvement when they have moved from AppDynamics to Sematext, regardless of the size of their implementation.

Ease of Use

Traditional APM solutions require too much training, can take far too long to install and require the user to build out their own custom dashboards and alert rules. On the other hand, it takes as little as a few minutes to set up Sematext thanks to out-of-the-box agents, dashboards, alerts and anomaly detection rules, built specifically for the technology you are monitoring and requiring very little configuration.

Best in Class

Unlike other vendors who typically offer only performance monitoring tools, logging tools, or only Big Data consulting services, Sematext pulls together all of these related core competencies into one solution suite of products and services. Thanks to these expertise, we boast a feature rich monitoring/logging platform with a particular speciality in web applications written in Java plus best in class Solr, Elasticsearch and Docker monitoring.

Full functionality Monitoring and Logging

Sematext Cloud allows you to jump from alerts, to metrics, to root cause log analysis all in one platform. This not only makes life easier, but also saves on the cost of licensing for multiple tools. Unlike other vendors, who traditionally have specialised in APM and infrastructure monitoring and have built out minimum functionality in logging, Sematext have built a feature rich platform that allows correlation of application, infrastructure and log monitoring all in one.
