Everybody knows they should be installing an Observability solution. More than the next new monitoring thing, Observability is an absolute requirement for operating orchestrated, containerized microservices. But just knowing you need it doesn't make it happen. In fact, many legacy monitoring vendors have tried to make Observability a "buzzword," claiming that their application monitoring tools are somehow magically observability tools. Bernd Harzog of APM Experts define observability as having “the data that you need (the logs, metrics, traces and dependency maps) for every single unit of work that your application and its underlying system software perform that is of interest to the business.” Going beyond the basics of observability, Enterprise Observability delivers contextualized data, correlating interactions across your entire IT environment. Join us for this fireside chat to hear from industry leaders as they share the secrets of achieving true Enterprise Observability. We’ll show you what it means to find data, handle data and analyze data, making it enterprise-ready for optimizing the performance of today’s highly complex IT environments.
