Enterprise Observability Promises and Reality
Cloud-native architectures promise more efficient software delivery and accelerated innovation. However, adopting cloud-native means services become granular, distributed and interdependent. Visibility and control of the software lifecycle across multiple environments is an imperative. Organizations look to observability to help solve some of these challenges and provide faster problem detection and resolution and improved responsiveness, but they don’t always achieve the benefits they’re hoping for. In this webinar, we will discuss:
- The impact of cloud native on observability
- The state of observability used in the enterprise today
- The changes cloud native brings and how observability addresses them
- What to look for in an observability solution
