Can I upgrade to SaaS myself? How easy is it?


Yes, you can! Dynatrace is highly motivated to make the upgrade to the SaaS process as frictionless as possible so you can do it on your own or with your team. The effort and complexity of the upgrade depend on how large your monitoring environment is and your expertise level. Dynatrace supports you with guidance, tooling, and assistance.


What toolkits are available, and where and how can I access them if I migrate by myself?


To get started, plan and execute your seamless upgrade to SaaS with our step-by-step guide. You'll find all the necessary information to make the upgrade successful and complete. Additionally, it's worth highlighting that you can also:

  • Ask questions via in-product assistance chat to our experts from Dynatrace ONE team

  • Utilize the Configuration-as-code tool to automate configuration migration

At some point, you'll have to decide on the migration approach – self-service or assisted by Dynatrace ACE Services.
