Need to know PROs and CONs of SaaS App Dynamics model

New Member

We are planning to implement SaaS App Dynamics model in my office.So we would like to know the pros and cons of SaaS App Dynamics model and limitations in SaaSApp Dynamics model.Also difference between SaaS App Dynamics and On-Premises AppDynamics Analytics.Thanks in advance


AppDynamics Team (Retired)



The SaaS model for AppDynamics allows users to immediately troubleshoot and diagnose the root cause of performance problems, as well as immediately upgrade when AppDynamics releases a new version.


There are also some minor details, such as the SMTP email server is preconfigured for SaaS users, whereas on-premise users must configure it for themselves.


Here is an article on our blog about the benefits of SaaS-based APM which might help you. 



In addition to the above blog post, I think it would be a good idea for our team to write an article for the Knowledge Base that describes the different use cases for SaaS vs on-premise models. I'll suggest that, and see if we can make it happen! 


Thank you,
