Looking for an alternative to APM tools for error and performance monitoring?

BugSnag provides end-to-end visibility into your applications so you can spend less time fixing problems and more time building

Increase productivity with a tool designed specifically for developers

Do your AppDynamics, Datadog, Dynatrace, or New Relic solutions include the features your developers need? To find out, ask them:

  • Do you have a login to any of these tools?
  • Do you log in on a daily basis?
  • Do you like using large APM tools like AppDynamics or New Relic for prioritizing and fixing bugs?

Because Application Performance Monitoring tools like Datadog and New Relic focus on running apps, they are geared towards Infrastructure, SRE, and DevOps teams who monitor performance and uptime. These APM platforms weren’t designed for building and improving apps, which is what engineers need.

With BugSnag’s full-stack visibility into app health and user experience, developers can easily prioritize and fix errors and performance issues with speed and agility. Ensure a high-quality customer experience during every interaction.
