The pace of technology innovation has dramatically accelerated and IT can no longer postpone the modernization of legacy systems.
Modernizing legacy applications is an iterative process—one that doesn’t have to involve a start-from-scratch approach.
How Synthetic Monitoring Helped Us Make, and Break an RPG Game
Being user obsessed is a key tenet in the practices of Observability and Site Reliability Engineering (SRE), but having deep knowledge of how your application is working with your users is tricky.
The “12 Rules” of Observability: Data Edition
There are immutable laws and rules for many things, from nature to physics to karma. Observability, with its innate complexity, also has its own immutable rules, which transform elastic and ephemeral rote reactions to a clear and concise approach and understanding of your environment.
