Microservices architectures allow organizations to deliver more capabilities to their customers in less time. These environments present new challenges. Questions that used to be simple, like “is this working the way it’s supposed to?”, are increasingly more complicated to answer. In this talk, Rich Schofield will present some key considerations around achieving the real-time visibility needed to alert and triage important trends as quickly as possible.
