Looking at the dashboard it was clear that something started breaking at around 9:30am.

From Instana’s inception we have believed that in order for our users to get the most out of an Application Performance Monitoring (APM) platform we needed to lower the barriers of entry and make it easy for users to quickly find the information that is important to them. Instana has developed many technologies, like Application Perspectives, to democratize the use of our platform, enabling individuals on Operations, Development, DevOps, and SRE teams to work autonomously.

Agile development feeding a CI/CD pipeline is only the initial step. Without accurate monitoring providing stabilizing feedback, speed can quickly turn into chaos. The only way to keep monitoring in synchronization with rapid deployments is automation.
