Moesif vs APM

Application Performance Monitoring (APM) tools like New Relic, Datadog, and Lightstep are great for root causing errors within your infrastructure and service mesh. In fact, we use New Relic and Azure Monitor ourselves. However, they are not designed to understand user behaviors down to the individual customer level and analyzing experiences across customers.

Customer-centric API analytics tools like Moesif empower your engineering and support teams with a full view of how customers are actually experiencing your service and where it falls short. Checkout our technical guide time-based vs user-centric architecture and data store.
