Observability and Monitoring -Siblings, not Rivals
If you work in IT, the odds are increasing that you, or someone close to you, has been talking about “observability” recently. And that conversation likely included some comparison or question about the difference between observability and monitoring.
In short, observability is the language used by those who are predominantly supporting cloud applications; while monitoring persists as the familiar language to those supporting on-premises, legacy, and hybrid environments.
So, how do we bring effective monitoring and observability tools and techniques together to deliver better business outcomes?
Join Loop1’s Chairman & CEO Bill Fitzpatrick for an insightful discussion designed to clear up some of the confusion, as well as outline how the data from monitoring and observability tools should allow for effective forecasting, planning, and budgeting, going beyond the basic aspects of security, availability, and performance.
