100% Observability

Session scheduled at 2:30-3:20 in Room 3 (Ski-U-Mah)

The only way to avoid crippling issues and resolve critical outages is with complete system and application visibility. But how do you ensure 100% observability and identify potential blind spots? With the growing number of monitoring projects and hundreds of monitoring services vying for your attention and business, how do you balance full coverage with limited budgets?

In this session I’ll break down the expansive monitoring landscape into 5 categories and provide a framework to ensure full coverage.. I’ll also touch on why these categories are important to your business and share the top criteria to consider when evaluating your options.


I intend for attendees to walk away with a more holistic knowledge of monitoring and the ability to gain full visibility into their applications and systems.

I’ve spoken at and attended dozens of conferences over the past year and I encounter far too many developers who don’t understand the monitoring products they’re paying for and exposing themselves to risks by assuming their implemented monitoring solution is covering something that it’s not.

Attendee skill level: This session will be accessible and applicable to attendees of all skill levels. I’ll cover the importance of each category of monitoring from both a business and technical perspective.
