Observability Virtual Conference 2020 – Democratizing Observability and demystifying common myths!

Presenters: Venkat Maddali, Director SRE – Observability & Service Ops, Ellie Mae

Abstract:

In the current SaaS world, customers have an option to switch the offering with a single mouse click.  Two of the main KPIs that everyone is very sensitive today like never before are “Customer experience and availability of the platforms”. Today I am going to cover how to build the notion of Observability ground up and get entire company marching towards enhanced instrumentation, standardized logging, liberty to collect valuable metrics and inducing the concept of supportability into SDLC. From a nuclear model of managing monitoring tooling’s and developing dashboards to harvesting a culture across product, engineering, operations, performance and support teams to provide independent vantage point into the same data set. And to achieve this, procuring more tools is not a the scalable solution, but we have democratize the foundations within the organization and be tool agnostic.
We will together de-mystify five main myths in the space of observability:

  1. Single Pane of Glass is not observability
  2. Creative Dashboard is not observability
  3. More tooling doesn’t mean more observability
  4. Observability is one team’s work
  5. Monitoring is not observability.
