Dynatrace RUM vs Google Analytics

Hey there...I'm reaching out to my fellow Dynatracers to get thoughts (while I research on my own as well). Does anyone have experience using both Google Analytics and Dynatrace RUM/UEM? I'm looking to compare/contrast the two products. There's some concern there's too much overhead to have 2 products measuring UI. I know the benefits of having Dynatrace - we can trace that user action all the way back through the infrastructure, but I'm not quite sure the benefits of having Google Analytics...so I was curious if anyone has experience using both and can explain to me why you'd want Google Analytics when you have Dynatrace RUM? Also, if you're aware of any synergies - i.e. can Dynatrace make use of Google Analytics tags to help identify/name user actions in a more business friendly manner???

We have environment where google analytics coexisting with rum because of client decision. Some far we didn’t faced performance issues because of this decision.
